One banana a day

According to a study, adding bananas and other potassium-rich foods to your diet can greatly benefit your health.

University of Alabama researchers found that eating bananas every day can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

The study, which aimed to determine how mineral potassium affects blood flow and artery health, looked at mice that were given a diet containing low, normal or high levels of potassium.

Overall, rats that received a low potassium diet had much harder arteries than their peers. The rats that received high levels of potassium, on the other hand, showed significantly less hardening of the arteries and reduced stiffness in the aorta as well.

The picture is mine.
