Bananas are often called the complete food but most of the time they are so much underrated. It is easy not to take note of this yellow-skinned fruit because every now and then there’s some exotic fruit that is promoted as the next big health revolution.
The truth is that bananas are delicious super foods that provide your body with all the nutrients required for thriving.
They have almost all kinds of nutrients, vitamins, natural sugars (fructose and sucrose), and fibers. The adage for apple also applies to bananas too – “a banana day can keep the doctor away.”
Do you know that banana is the No.1 consumed food among Americans? More bananas are consumed in the U.S. every year than apples and oranges combined. So many people have a routine of buying a bunch of these fruits and eating them through the week. Initially, they will be greenish yellow in color and don’t have any spots. But with time they keep getting more and riper, and have brown spots. These spots become increasingly bigger and then cover the entire fruit.
Most of us think that brown bananas are rotten and don’t eat it. There’s nothing wrong with believing so because most of the fruits are going to become brown and then rot. But that is not the case with bananas. The riper they are the more dark patches they have, the more TNF they will have.
So what is TNF?
The riper your banana is the more of this cancer-fighting substance is found in it. TNF fights against the abnormal body cells. It is helpful in enabling communication between the cells of your immune response system. It also helps guide cell movement towards those body areas where there is infection or inflammation.
