Banana is one of the most popular fruits worldwide as this fruit offers numerous health benefits. As most of the dieticians suggest that one should get around five servings of fruit a day, it would not be hard to eat too many bananas. However, overindulgence of anything can potentially result in creating health problems. In this article, we would like explore the health benefits and health ramifications of eating bananas regularly and the role they play in combating cancer.
Role of ripe bananas in fighting cancer
We all once been told that the riper the banana, the less its nutritive benefits are. Well, now we have got a refutation for the naysayers. Actually the fact is the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality. Japanese researchers have recently proven that ripe bananas help in fighting with cancer. The dark spots present on ripe yellow bananas generate a substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), which destroys cancerous tumors. As the banana ripens, its antioxidant levels rise, which result in strengthening the immune system and increasing white blood cells. Actually ripe bananas are around eight times more effective than the green ones in terms of elevating the cancer-fighting potential of white blood cells.
Ripe bananas help to stop tumors in their tracks
Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) is a cytokine, which aids cell-to-cell communication in immune responses and direct movement of cell to infection sites and inflammation. TNF obstructs the growth and spread of tumor cells and prompt apoptosis (cell death). Researchers proved that Tumor Necrosis Factor produced by ripe bananas is as effective of an anti-cancer agent as lentinan (an immunostimulant injected intravenously to encourage production of white blood cell).
Which banana is more beneficial for overall health – Yellow or Green?
Both yellow and green bananas are high in potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. No matter the colour, bananas nurture the gastrointestinal track and helps in digestion. However, green bananas have a big advantage of being less sugary.
A ripen banana’s starch content mainly include simple, easy-to-digest sugars that raise blood sugar levels. Hence, insulin resistant or diabetic people need to keep a check on their intake of sugary ripe bananas. With the increase of cancer-fighting properties of ripe bananas, generally their vitamin and mineral content take a dip down.
Role of bananas in breast cancer
The anticancer activities of bananas do not appear mainly due to antioxidant components as bananas have the lowest levels of antioxidant activity among all fruits as per traditional measurement methods. However, as per research it is quite evident that bananas do not promote cancer and have anti-cancer properties. As per a study of Chinese women, it has been found that banana consumption is associated with lower risk of breast cancer. One another U.S. prospective study, conducted in 2016, indicated that teenagers with high banana intake had reduced risk of developing breast cancer in adulthood.
