If there is a perfect food it has to be the beautiful banana.  Because bananas contain fiber, plus three natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose, they provide an instant boost of energy.  Here are some other benefits of the banana:

-Tryptophan is a protein that the body converts into serotonin, which helps you to relax and feel happier

-Vitamin B6 regulates blood glucose levels, so it helps stabilize your mood.

-Iron helps to stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood, so it helps in cases of anemia.

-Potassium helps to reduce the risk of high blood pressure.  It also makes you more alert, so you can learn more efficiently.

And when you’¢re done eating your banana, don’t throw out the skin!  The inside skin of the banana will soothe mosquito bites.  And some say that you can get rid of a wart by taping a piece of banana skin over the wart.
