A banana a day keeps the Doctor away


BANANA -A very interesting FACTS MUST SHARE………….This is interesting. After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.

But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills – eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chroniclercases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’

PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! —

– தெய்வங்களுக்கு வாழைப்பழம் படைப்பது ஏன்?


– தெய்வங்களுக்கு வாழைப்பழம் படைப்பது ஏன்?

எல்லா தெய்வங்களுக்கும் தவறாமல் வாழைப்பழம் படைக்கிறார்கள். மற்ற எந்தப் பழமாக இருந்தாலும் சாப்பிட்டுவிட்டு, கொட்டையை எறிந்தால் மீண்டும் முளைக்கும். ஆனால், வாழைப்பழத்தை உரித்தோ,முழுமையாகவோ வீசினாலும் கூட மீண்டும் முளைப்பதில்லை. இது பிறவியற்ற நிலையாகிய முக்தியைக் காட்டுகிறது. எனது இறைவா! மீண்டும் பிறவாத நிலையைக் கொடு! என வேண்டவே நாம் நமது கடவுளுக்கு வாழைப்பழம் படைக்கிறோம். அதுபோல் தேங்காய்க்கும் அந்த குணம் உண்டு. அது மட்டுமல்ல தேங், வாழைப்பழம் இரண்டும் நமது எச்சில் படாதவை.மாம்பழத்தை நாம் சாப்பிட்டுவிட்டு, கொட்டையைப் போட்டால் அந்த விதையிலிருந்து மாமரம் உருவாகிறது. ஆனால், தேங்காயை சாப்பிட்டுவிட்டு ஓட்டைப் போட்டால் அது முளைக்காது. முழுத் தேங்காயிலிருந்து தான் தென்னைமரம் முளைக்கும். அது போல,வாழைமரத்திலிருந்து தான் வாழைக்கன்று வரும். பழம் கொட்டை என்பது கிடையாது. அப்படி நமது எச்சில்படாத இவற்றை இறைவனுக்கு உகந்ததாக நமது முன்னோர்கள் படைக்கும் மரபினை உருவாக்கினார்கள்.நாமும் இந்த மரபினைப் பின்பற்றிவருகிறோம்.இதுவே இந்துதர்மத்தின் தனிச்சிறப்பு.

 

Eat banana to fight cancer


When we were young, we were told told that bananas with dark patches were the preferred variety. Guess science is only discovering now what grandma knew a hundred years ago. 

THE BANANAS with dark patches on yellow skin – Anti Deadly Cancer ! 

I Never knew this!

BANANAS with dark patches on yellow skin Click here to join World Malayali Club or visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/worldmalayaliclub/Click here to join World Malayali Club or visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/worldmalayaliclub/ The fully ripe banana produces a substance called TNF which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. So don’t be surprised very soon the shop will go out of stock forbananas. As the banana ripens, it develops dark spots or patches on the skin. The more dark patches it has, the higher will be its’ immunity enhancement quality . Hence the Japanese love bananas for a good reason. According to a Japanese scientific research, banana contains TNF which has anti-cancer properties. 
The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the degree of ripeness of the fruit, i.e., the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality. 
In an animal experiment carried out by a professor in Tokyo U comparing the various health benefits of different fruits, using banana, grape, apple, water melon, pineapple, pear and persimmon, it was found that banana gave the best results. It increased the number of white blood cells, enhanced the immunity of the body and produced anti-cancer substance TNF. The recommendation is to eat 1 to 2 banana a day to increase your body immunity to diseases like cold, flu and others. 
According to the Japanese professor, yellow skin bananas with dark spots on it are 8 times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than the green skin version.
