HEALTH BENEFITS OF BANANA

BANANA

BY KAFAYAT.O.OYEWUNMI

Banana is one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world. Banana is a tropical fruit that is described in the Quran as one of the pleasures that await us in Paradise. *Bananas* will be enjoyed by Jannah’s people. It is a fruit that contains a great deal of barakah. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran *”And [banana] trees layered [with fruit] (Quran 56:29)”.*
Bananas are high in nutrition and are mostly made up of water (75%), protein (1.3%), and lipids (0.3%). (0.6 percent).
 Banana *comes* in a variety of colours, sizes, and shapes. The Cavendish banana, a sort of dessert banana, is the most prevalent. It is green when unripe and turns yellow as it ripens. Banana is high in fiber, as well as several antioxidants. 
In addition, one medium-sized banana (118 grams) contains *~Each banana contain~* just about 105 calories and is almost entirely made up of water and carbohydrates.
Bananas are low in protein and practically fat-free. *Starch makes* up the majority of the carbs in green, unripe bananas, but as the banana ripens, the starch transforms into sugar (glucose, fructose and sucrose). 
Each banana also contains carbs, potassium, and other minerals in significant amounts. It aids in the retention of athletes’ concentration and motivation. 
Pectin, a type of fibre found in bananas, is responsible for the flesh’s fluffy texture.
 Unripe banana *contains* resistant starch, a type of soluble fiber that is resistant to digestion. Pectin and resistant starch, by slowing the emptying of your stomach, can help to control blood sugar levels after meals and *reduces* hunger. This indicates that in healthy people, bananas should not produce significant blood sugar rises. 
People with type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, should probably avoid eating a lot of well-ripened bananas and closely check their blood sugar if they do.
 *Banana is a nutritious fruit that serves different nutrient purposes.* 
 *The unripe banana is low in protein and practically fat-free while ripe banana contains starch which transforms into sugar such as (GLUCOSE, FRUCTOSE and SUCROSE)*
