Yes, THAT IS A QUESTION!
There are serious pros and cons to both replies:
Yellow bananas are easier to digest and have higher levels of antioxidants. Yet there is micronutrient loss that happens as a banana ripens and the sugar content grows significantly.
Green bananas are good for anyone trying to avoid food with high sugar content (ppl with Type 2 Diabetes), have probiotic bacteria and help you absorb nutrients better, particularly calcium. Yet, unripe bananas have lower levels of antioxidants and may cause bloating.
ALL BANANA PEELS ARE EQUALLY GOOD! As they can:
- remove a nasty splinter
- help you get rid of corns and calluses
- ease bruises
- relieve pain
- remove warts
- effectively fight acne
- treat a poison ivy rash
- help discomfort of mosquito bites
- heal psoriasis
- protect you from UV rays
Actually banana peel is edible and packed with nutrients. It contains high amounts of vitamin B6 and B12, as well as magnesium, potassium, fiber and protein. Banana peel is eaten in many parts of the world.
While bananas can be helpful in overcoming depression; can provide nearly 10% of your daily fiber requirement; energywise can be more effective than sports drinks; rich in Vitamin A, help your eyes...
However, eating the fruits in excess may trigger headaches, sleepiness and other negative symptoms.
Other interesting facts.
Bananas may have been the world's first cultivated fruit. Archaeologists have found evidence of banana cultivation in New Guinea as far back as 8000 B.C.
The banana plant is classified as an arborescent (tree-like) perennial herb, and the banana itself is considered a berry. A bunch of bananas is called a hand; a single banana is a finger.
There are almost 1,000 varieties of bananas!
Don't you feel like going bananas?
