Banana: the fruit of the wise men

Did you know, the scientific name for bananas is “musa sapientum” or “fruit of the wise men”?

What are the other benefits of bananas?

They can actually make you feel good! Dopamine from bananas might not actually cross the blood-brain barrier to lift your mood, but they do act as powerful antioxidants. In fact, several antioxidant flavonoids are found in bananas – most notably catechins – which have been linked to various health benefits. With no fats or cholesterol, bananas are great for general snacking.
