Bananas and your Nutrition and Health

Bananas rank among the healthiest fruits. A single serving of a medium banana weighs in at approximately 100 calories and includes 2.8 grams of dietary fibre and 1 gram of protein.

Bananas are also rich in A and B vitamins, with more B6 than any other fruit. Plus Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin and Folic Acid. They also contain small amounts of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and traces of iron and zinc.

Bananas are also an especially rich source of the mineral potassium, which fuels the muscles and aids in contraction, making them an ideal snack just prior to any kind of physical activity.
