Bananas for Bananas: 5 Reasons to Eat Them

Today’s ice cream flavor of the day is banana. Here at Original Soul Vegetarian we carefully select all of our ingredients to make sure that our food not only tastes good but is good for you. Deciding the flavor of the day for our soy ice cream or what goes into the Eternity Juice Bar shakes is no different. So why are we so bananas for bananas? Let us count the ways…

  1. Bananas get the FDA stamp of approval. Bananas can lower blood pressure and protect against cardiovascular diseases due to being high in potassium and low in salt.
  2. Bananas improve your mood. Bananas are high in tryptophan which triggers the production of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin.
  3. Bananas improve learning. Bananas are high in potassium which helps you stay alert and learn better.
  4. Bananas aid digestion. Bananas produce digestive enzymes and are a natural antacid. If your digestive system is out of whack, eat a banana.
  5. Bananas make a great pre- work out snack. Bananas will give you an energy boost, maintain your blood sugar, and protect against muscle cramps.
