The Many Benefits of Banana Smoothies

If you are looking for quick, healthy breakfast ideas, try mixing up some smoothie recipes made with bananas. Bananas contain three different types of sugar, so they provide a great energy boost to start the day; however, because they also contain a significant amount of fiber, this sugar is absorbed slowly and doesn’t significantly raise blood sugar levels or lead to a crash. In addition, this fruit contains 28 percent of the recommended daily value for vitamin B6, making it one of the highest single sources of the vitamin. Because of this, banana smoothie recipes build blood, help regulate blood sugar levels, and strengthen the immune system.

Bananas also contain many other vitamins and minerals. They are rich in potassium, which means that bananas support the heart, kidneys and nerves and can help maintain normal blood pressure and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. They are also a great source of fructooligosaccharide, which supports the growth of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. Consequently, banana smoothie recipes help the body absorb nutrients and digest food properly. In fact, these smoothie recipes may even help to boost mood because of their high content of tryptophan, which boosts serotinin production. They also contain sizeable amounts of vitamin C, magnesium, pantothenic acid and riboflavin.

Many people worry about the sugar in bananas. This fear is unfounded because they only measure 12 on the glycemic index, which puts them within the healthy range. Bananas are perfect for smoothie recipes because they provide a creamy base and are a natural thickening agent. In addition, they are very cheap, so banana smoothies can fit in even the smallest budget.
