Here are a handful of health benefits from eating bananas

Blood health:  Bananas are just loaded with vitamin B-6 which converts tryptophan to serotonin and helps the body produce hemoglobin, a crucial component of your blood.  Vitamin B-6 also helps manage blood sugar levels and is essential for immune system health since it aids in producing antibodies

Bone health:  Since bananas are rich in potassium, they can promote bone health due to the fact that regular intake of potassium suppresses calcium excretion from the body thereby reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis. 

Digestive health:  Notably good for children with problems with digestion.

Heart health:  Potassium, which is present in bananas, is essential for muscle contraction so therefore plays an important role in muscle actions such as heart function.  Lower potassium intake has been linked to heart disease.

Kidney health:  Regular intake of potassium minimizes calcium secretion in the ruin and thus reduces the risk of developing kidney stones.

Metabolism:  Quinoa contains riboflavin or B2, which helps with energy metabolism within muscles and the brain and also aids in energy production in cells.

Protein:  Absolutely packed with protein and all 9 essential amino acids, quinoa is considered a complete protein.

Manganese:  Quinoa is loaded with manganese, an antioxidant that protects cells in the body against damage brought on by free radicals and also guards against damage to mitochondria during the process of energy production.

Fiber:  Fiber is already known to ease constipation and other digestive problems, but did you know that fiber can reduce your risk of heart disease by reducing high blood pressure?  Fiber also helps because it makes you feel fuller and takes more effort to eat so takes longer and helps curb overeating.  Quinoa contains nearly twice the fiber of other grains too!

Iron:  Iron plays an important role in blood health.  It is the basis of hemoglobin formation and red blood cells rely upon iron to stay healthy.  Iron also helps with neurotransmitter synthesis, enzyme activity, energy metabolism, and the regulation of your body temperature.  Since quinoa contains iron, it should be included in any vegetarian or vegan diet to replace the iron that absorbed by eating meats.

The list goes on and on.  Quinoa can have a huge impact on your health and provide a great nutritional alternative to meat for people looking to begin a vegan or vegetarian routine.  Quinoa can be prepared in several different dishes and has a great taste and texture.  And, nothing tastes better than nutrition, nature's health insurance!
