The healing properties of bananas – for pregnancy and afterwards

Image

Feeling irritable or moody ??? Are you low on energy , constipated  , anemic , experiencing heartburn , stomach ulcers or having some morning sickness ?? Then you might want to add some bananas to you diet .

Bananas are :

High in potassium –  Helps your nerves and muscles function properly

Rich in iron – Which helps blood carry oxygen throughout the body to where it is needed .

Has natural serotonin – Which improves mood

Has tryptophan – Which relaxes the mind and regulates any moodiness . Also good for morning sickness

Full of fiber – Helps battle constipation and diarrhea.

They are a great source of natural energy

Help neutralize acidity – Good for heartburn and stomach ulcers ( literally puts out the fire )

Helps to maintain a proper balance of electrolytes – Helps cells carry electrical impulse to other cells in your body .

I try to eat one daily for an afternoon snack with a little  peanut or almond butter for extra  protein

Here is a GREAT healthy recipe I found by the ever so fabulous  Pamela Salzman  . I actually baked them the other day loved !!!!
