Bananas are rich in the mineral potassium. Potassium helps maintain fluid levels in the body and regulates the movement of nutrients and waste products in and out of cells.
Potassium also helps muscles to contract and nerve cells to respond. It keeps the heart beating regularly and can reduce the effect of sodium on blood pressure.
Potassium may reduce the risk of kidney stones forming as people age. In turn, healthy kidneys make sure that the right amount of potassium stays in the body.
One medium sized banana contains 422 milligrams (mg) of potassium.
It is best to try to get potassium from dietary sources, such as bananas.
Fresh bananas are available year-round. Unlike some fruits, bananas continue to ripen after picking.
Bananas will ripen steadily at room temperature. To ripen faster, people can try keeping them in a paper bag.
Refrigerated bananas will ripen more slowly. The outer peel of the banana will darken in the fridge, but the banana itself will stay intact longer.
Here are some tips for using bananas:
• Add a sliced banana to your morning cereal or oatmeal for a more nutritious breakfast.
• Mash ripe bananas and use to replace butter or oil in baked goods.
• Add mashed bananas to muffins, cookies, and cakes for a naturally sweet flavor.
• Add bananas to a smoothie.
• Take a banana to work or school for a healthful, portable snack.
