Bananas are so easy to grab and go
Health gurus have a love-hate relationship with the curved yellow fruit. Some warn against eating too many while others say they’re good for you. Pretty confusing. We were curious to find out what really happens when you eat two bananas a day—the result is pretty nice!
These positive things happen.
Of course, a banana is rich in sugar and some (e.g., diabetics) have to be careful when eating it. If you exercise and eat mostly healthy foods, then you can expect the following to happen if you start eating two bananas a day..
You get more energy
The carbohydrates in bananas will give you more energy because the energy is absorbed slowly over time. In contrast, snacks sweetened with granulated sugar will give you an initial burst of energy, but one that quickly wears off.
Your muscles won’t cramp as often
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with muscle cramps? You can try to stop this from happening by eating bananas. They contain high levels of potassium, which ensures that your muscles will not contract as quickly.
You’ll suffer less from heartburn
Do you often suffer from heartburn? Then the banana is your best friend. When eaten at the onset of heartburn, a banana will provide immediate relief by neutralizing the acid in your stomach.
It counteracts anemia
Do you have an iron deficiency? You can remedy this by eating bananas. Bananas are rich in iron and promote an increase in red blood cells.
You’ll have improved bowel movements
Do you ever have a difficult time going number two? Then eat a banana. Since bananas are rich in fiber, eating them regularly can make it easier to do the doo.
Do you now understand the benefits of eating bananas but find that snacking on them is not very tasty? Luckily, there are ways to incorporate bananas into a recipe. Some, of course, are a bit more complicated than others. Do you like the sound of having a tasty and simple breakfast? Try making banana pancakes.

- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- First, mash the banana in a bowl. Then add the egg and stir with a whisk until both ingredients are mixed together.
