as it has a lot of potassium. Potassium is an element which is essential for keeping
the blood pressure normal. It also helps in proper functioning of the heart.

Research has found an average banana has an amount of potassium varying from
450 milligrams to 467 milligrams. It has only one milligram of sodium. Apart from
bananas, potassium is also present in milk, meats, vegetables and fruits. If you have
one banana per day, then you are preventing yourself from atherosclerosis and also
from high blood pressure.

A research done on more than 40,000 American men for more than four years
showed how a proper diet affects blood pressure. It was found that people who had
diet of foods that were high in cereal fiber, magnesium, and rich in potassium had a
much less chance of stroke.

The 'Archives of Internal Medicine' has points to prove that people who eat foods
high in potassium and fiber like bananas, have a much less risk in developing any
heart disease. The potassium-enriched fruit of banana also have the capacity of
providing cardiovascular benefits.

Potassium can also increase the health of bones. Banana potassium has the capacity
of counteracting the increasing loss of urinary calcium. Such loss is caused by the
diets high in salt. This can lead to thinning of the bones at a very fast rate.
