I always knew that Banana has lots of Potassium, which is great for our heart and helps with bloating. But Banana is also rich in Copper, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Manganese and pectin.
And I have just heard in a Russian version of "Doctors" show that bananas are rich in silica, which helps the skin to retain firmness and elasticity and fight wrinkles. So I researched a little more.
Much lesser-known than zinc, silica “has such a tremendous impact on skin regeneration—silica is strongly linked with healthy youthful skin,” says Isabel Sharkar, ND, a naturopathic doctor. “It also creates bonds between protein molecules, which are responsible for the skin’s natural ability to retain water, critical for repair and cell renewal. It is required for rebuilding collagen; it sits inside collagen, acting as glue, providing strength, flexibility, and resilience to connective tissues.” This glue-like function means silica is imperative for helping to keep your nails, teeth, and hair robust and healthy. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps relieve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. This wonder mineral also works to keep other minerals in balance, such as calcium and magnesium, which plays an important role in keeping our hormones balanced, too.”
And best of all unlike expensive celebrity treatments, bananas are affordable and accessible.
I would stick to Organic products, of course:)
