Going Bananas! 🍌

Yay!! I changed into “Bananaman” today in Covent Garden for the first ever #wcrftakeover for World Cancer Research Fund. My lovely Wife Sarah, Christine, Anita, Mark, Maria & I had a great day: thank you so much to everyone who donated or stopped by to say hi! Go to wcrf-uk.org to stay up to date on their fantastic work! 😎

As a Cancer Prevention charity we were also giving away Bananas and sharing some great Banana facts as they help reduce your Cancer risk! I love Bananas…..So here are a few random facts:

1. Are energy boosters
The natural sugars found in bananas (sucrose, fructose, and glucose) combined with fiber and potassium make it an energy-boosting snack. In addition, its levels of serotonin and dopamine improve antioxidant capacity and help with of oxidative stress, enhancing performance overall. So the next time you plan an extreme workout session, remember to eat two bananas before your workout.

2. Is useful for treating anemia
People who suffer from anemia need to ingest great amounts of iron which stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood. Bananas are not only a rich source of iron they also contain a high amounts of vitamin C which increases the absorption of iron. So if you suffer from anemia, you should consider including bananas in their diet.

3. Bananas float on water!

Please add any more Banana facts in the comments section below…..I’d love to learn more! 😎

One Response to “Going Bananas! 🍌”

  1. Great pictures and blog sharing. What a wonderful idea the bananas theme for cancer research. I love bananas. Here in Queensland we have lots. We have two bunches growing even on our property this year. I love Lady Fingers best of all. Do you get them in UK? They are very flavoursome with a real creamy texture. Apparently an aid to digestion as well as a source of energy and nourishment. Thank you.
