Bananas Help You Quit Smoking?
Why spend money on nicotine patches when there’s a much more nutritious solution?
The combination of potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B6 and B12 is a potent mix which fights the effects of nicotine withdrawal. When you feel the urge to suck on a cigarette, just stick a banana in your mouth instead.
10. Bananas Ward Off Neurological Disorders?
Bananas are rich in magnesium, a substance which the body uses to convert dietary fatty acids into a substance in the brain cells called DHA.
Researchers have found a link between DHA deficiency and a host of neurological disorders including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Alzheimer’s disease.
Similarly in 2010, Japanese researchers also found people with diets lacking in vitamin B6 were at greater risk of Parkinson’s disease. This vitamin is known to prevent potential dangerous levels of the amino acid homocysteine in the brain. Preventing all these neurological disorders could be as simple as eating more bananas.
