They reduce your cancer risk. Blueberries and raspberries are truly anti-cancer fruits.

What’s good in Banana?

For all the athletes, you might want to know that “banana might reasonably replace sports drinks for those of us who rely on carbohydrates to fuel exercise and speed recovery, according to a new study comparing the cellular effects of carbohydrates consumed during sports.” – great article in Times

One medium banana (∼118 g) contains about 27 g carbohydrate (half as sugars), 3.1 g dietary fiber, 105 kilocalories, and is a good source of potassium (422 mg). Thus bananas appear to be a unique mixture of carbohydrates, nutrients, and antioxidants that may provide good nutrition support during prolonged and intensive exercise.

Coconut water has more potassium than a medium banana. In its natural form, it is a refreshing and nutritious beverage which is widely consumed due to its beneficial properties to health.
