of nutrients that are vital to our health? You heard me right! Not only are they delicious, but they can

this type of starch acts more like a fiber in your body. “Resistant starch in your diet, like the
green banana, may reduce your risk of diabetes by aiding in blood sugar control, and heart
disease by helping to lower blood cholesterol levels,” she wrote in an article for Livestrong. Their high fiber content means younger bananas
keep you full for longer. This helps your appetite stay in check thus
promoting weight loss. Under-ripe bananas are also very low on the
glycemic index making them an ideal snack for those who need to control their blood
sugar levels. 3. Yellow bananas. Yellow, firm bananas contain antioxidants
that protect our bodies from various illnesses. Corleone noted one antioxidant present is
dopamine, which reduces the risk of heart disease as well as degenerative diseases. She said while dopamine is usually known to
act as a feel-good chemical in the brain, you won’t get that from eating a banana,
unfortunately. “Dopamine from bananas does not cross the
blood-brain barrier. It simply acts as a strong antioxidant instead
of altering hormones or mood,” she wrote. Bananas contain more sugar as they age, and
so yellow bananas are on the sweeter side. Are you curious about what other health benefits
bananas have? Well, stick around til the very end, because
after we tell you about the effects different colored bananas may have on your health, we’ll
tell you about about the overall health benefits of bananas, and why you should be eating them
more! 2. Yellow bananas with spots. Yellow bananas with brown spots aren’t quite
as healthy as their younger counterparts, but they still contain a lot of antioxidants. They are even sweeter than yellow bananas
and are usually the most popular choice when it comes to taste. A group of Japanese researchers from Teikyo
University has proven that bananas at this ripeness can actually fight cancer. They found that spotted bananas contain 8
times the amount of Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) than green bananas. According to PubMed, TNF helps to break down
abnormal cells in our body, namely cancerous tumors. The cancer-fighting substance also benefits
our immune system by guiding white blood cells to areas in the body that are inflamed or
infected. 1. Brown bananas. Brown bananas, while they are the sugariest,
still have high levels of potassium. According to the Linus Pauling Institute,
foods high in potassium help prevent conditions like osteoporosis. Brown bananas also contain the mood-altering
amino acid tryptophan. In a report by Life Extension, tryptophan
is said to regulate your moods. It can help ease depression, anxiety and also
help you sleep better. The older a banana gets, the easier they are
to digest making brown ones ideal for those with digestive issues. As bananas head to the end of their shelf
life, they begin to lose their nutrients. Therefore, brown bananas should be kept in
the refrigerator to minimize further loss. If you like to eat your bananas when they
are brown, you may want to reconsider that. You won’t be getting as many nutrients as
you could be getting. And besides, who wants to eat brown, mushy
bananas?! Yuck. Now that you know what effect different colored

form. Unripe bananas have resistant starch, which

to moderate blood sugar levels after we eat. They can also help reduce our appetites. Bananas are also ranked pretty low on the

and potassium is vital to your blood pressure control as well as the overall healthy function
of our kidneys. Because of this, bananas can help improve
our kidney health. In fact, according to Healthline, one study
completed over a 13 year period suggested that people who ate 2 to three bananas per
week were actually 33 percent less likely to be at risk for developing kidney disease! Other studies say that people who eat bananas
four to six times a week are a whopping 50 percent less likely to be at risk for kidney
disease than people who don’t eat bananas. Moral of the story? Eat more bananas! So now that you know what effects different
