People tend to throw the banana peels whenever they eat a banana, but this habit is really bad because banana peels are abundant in so many beneficial nutrients. The best part is that banana peels can aid weight loss.
The main reason why bananas aid weight loss is because they contain 12% of the daily recommended amount of fiber which not only aids digestion, but it also has the possibility to reduce the risk of diabetes.
Moreover, bananas also contain 17% of vitamin C which is essential for our immune system, 20% of vitamin B-6 which helps the body to convert food into energy, and at last but not least, 8% of magnesium which has the ability to regulate both glucose and blood pressure levels.
This means that in order to incorporate all those beneficial nutrients, you need to consume the peels. Banana peels are also a rich source of vitamin B12 and B6, potassium, magnesium, fiber and protein.
Make sure to use unripe green bananas in order to lose extra pounds since they are rich in probiotics that aid digestion and increase both serotonin and dopamine levels which results in good mood. This is especially beneficial for those who are dealing with emotional eating.
Banana peels have bitter taste since they have higher concentration of phytonutrients. So in order to improve the taste, you should add the peels to smoothies or prepare a banana tea. You can also use the peels for curry instead of potatoes.
To get the best benefits and the essential nutrients, make sure to buy organic bananas and wash them thoroughly before consumption. The following video will show you some more benefits of consuming banana peels:
