    One of Nature's Perfect Foods

    Definitely one of my favorites!

    Banana facts

    1. Boost energy and contain fiber
    2. Help calm nerves
    3. Contains vitamin B6 which regulates blood glucose levels which can affect mood
    4. High in iron, help lessen anemia
    5. Contain tryptophan which is converted into serotonin for relaxtion and happier moods
    6. High in potassium and low in salt, great for those with high blood pressure
    7. Haven't tried this myself, but creating a milkshake from banana and sweetened with honey supposed to be good for curing hangovers
    8. Helps avoid morning sickness (never tried this either)
    9. Another untested use, rubbing on an insect bite helps reduce swelling and irritation
    10. HIGH in fiber; need I say any more
    11. Used to help those quit smoking - B6, B12, potassium and magnesium help body recover from effects of nicotine withdrawal (another untested useage by me)
    12. Eating a banana helps sooth heart burn (I have to try this)
    13. According to research done by The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of regular diet can help cut the risk of strokes by 40%
    14. Kills warts - take piece of banana skin and with yellow side out, tape over wart (another piece of info I never had to use)

    Definitely a beautiful painting! After reading your list of benefits, it makes me want to get a bunch of bananas now.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Beautifully painted Logics. So happy to read your info. My husband smoked for many years and successfully quit cold turkey. He eats a banana everyday. I will tell him about your painting and share this info of how I am sure this food was a huge aid in his success.
