Why Black Spotted Bananas?
Here are 3 main reasons why you should think twice before getting rid of those black spotted bananas in your cabinet:
1. They Can Replace Energy Drinks
“Forget energy drinks , eat a banana” is the new advice given by specialists. A study carried out on athletes and published in May this year, came out that those who ate a banana had higher levels of dopamine than those who opted for an energy drink .
Moreover, dopamine levels continued to rise up to an hour after. Bananas not only can successfully replace the energy drinks, but they also help you feel better.
2. Have Anti-Cancer Properties
According to Japanese studies, a good banana with blemished peel, produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) that kills tumor cells. The darker the peel is, the stronger anti-cancer properties of bananas are.
Black spotted bananas also help strengthening the immunity system.
