Do you know what a banana is good for? [b]Depression:[/b] "According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, mnay fel much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, knows to make you relax improve your mood and generally make you feel happier." [b]Hangovers:[/b]"One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is make a bananan milkshake, sweetened with honey. the banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blook sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your systems." These are just two things abut the banana, I pretty sure that some of you already knew this, and also never, ever put the banana in the refrigerator.

I freeze bananas all the time to make smoothies later, just peel them first and put in an airtight "Ziploc" bag.

right, if you do not peel them first then they'll turn dark plus it's super hard to remove the peels once they are frozen.

Hmm, may be I should be going to the shop to buy bananas. I have been suffering from depression for months now and I refuse to take medication for it because I don't believe in medication. I believe in natural ways.

Hi chookie, You should try them and see if you notice the differences.Also if you have a herb store near you, go ask them if they have anything for depression. I understand what you mean about taking medication, you don't want to depend on them. Have you looked in the internet for home rememdies? chookie, take care and go buy some bananans. thank you for you responces.

Oh I love babanas and you know I think you are right, they do make you feel good unfortunately I can only have one every now and then because of the high blood pressure medication I am on, bananas have too much potassium but i do sneak one every now and then they are a lovely fruit.

Hi lilaclady My husband found the paper on bananas, I'm trying to eat one a day, they said it's good for leg cramps, and I get them every day. I also like them as a shake, I make them for my daughter a good breakfast drink. thank you for your post
