Raw Banana Benefits

Here I listed some of the benifits that I found online, if you are interested.

  1. Digestive Support: With a high content of dietary fibers and resistant starch, green bananas facilitate digestion, promote prolonged satiety, and assist in weight management. They also prove effective in alleviating various stomach issues like gastric ulcers, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and bacterial infections of the digestive tract.
  2. Gluten-Free Option: Individuals adhering to a gluten-free diet can opt for green banana flour as an alternative.
  3. Heart Health: Abundant in potassium, raw bananas function as vasodilators, regulating blood pressure levels and safeguarding against heart conditions like atherosclerosis and heart attacks, thereby promoting overall cardiovascular health.
  4. Blood Sugar Management: Characterized by a low glycemic index, green bananas induce a gradual release of insulin after consumption. This property is particularly beneficial for those struggling with blood sugar level management.
  5. Vitamin-Rich: Aside from being a source of essential minerals, green bananas are teeming with vitamins B6 and C. Vitamin B6 facilitates numerous enzymatic processes within the body, enhancing metabolism, while vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, combats chronic diseases, infections, enhances skin health, and bolsters the immune system.
