Bananas For Healthy Aging

Did you know that there are over 1,000 different varieties of bananas worldwide?  It seems that there are about as many health benefits as well!

Bananas are a powerhouse of vitamins when completely yellow.  As brown spots begin to appear they have more sugar and become sweeter.

Vitamins C and B6 are part of its components as well as the minerals potassium and magnesium.  Potassium is good for the function of the nervous and muscular systems and regulates arterial pressure. B6 is important for the regulation of the nervous and immune systems. Bananas help to regulate the gastro-intestinal system in order to aid digestion.

Why not have a banana for your daytime snack? It is both filling and nutritious and benefits healthy aging and therefor age esteem.
