Why banana is beneficial during pregnancy?
  • Rich in pectin, bananas aid digestion and gently remove toxins and heavy metals from the body.
  • Bananas act as a probiotic, stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel. They also produce digestive enzymes to assist in absorbing nutrients.
  • Constipated? High fiber in bananas can help normalize bowel motility without any side effects during pregnancy.
  • Got the runs? Bananas are soothing to the digestive tract and help restore lost electrolytes after diarrhea.
  • Bananas are a natural antacid, providing relief from acid reflux and heart burn during pregnancy.
  • Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin the happy mood brain neurotransmitter. Thus banana helps as mood elevator during pregnancy.
  • Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.
  • Strengthen your blood and relieve anemia with the added iron from bananas.
  • Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, which helps to keep blood pressure at a normal level, which is important during pregnancy. It is also important for a healthy nervous system and kidneys. One medium banana contains 450mg potassium, which is around 13% of the recommended daily intake (RDI).
  • Eating a banana between meals helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce nausea from morning sickness which is most common during pregnancy.
  • Bananas are a good source of Vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant in the body. Antioxidants fight against damage caused by free radicals that can lead various diseases. Vitamin C is very important during your pregnancy as it helps to boost your immune system and therefore it’s good for your baby. One medium banana provides 10mg vitamin C, a quarter of the RDI.
  • Dietary fibre is important but especially so during pregnancy. One medium banana provides 2.3g dietary fibre, almost 10% of the RDI.
  • Bananas are packed with folate. Adequate folate is required in early pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects (birth defects of the brain and spinal cord) in your baby.
  • All of the B-vitamins play a crucial role in your baby's development, but bananas are loaded with vitamin B6.
