Did you know that a full ripe banana with dark patches on the yellow skin produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells in us? In fact, the more dark patches on a banana, the higher the cancer fighting benefit it has for us.


A yellow-skin banana with dark spots is 8x more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells in humans that a green skin version.


Although I am a firm perfectly yellow banana eater, try to eat a browning banana daily! I am going to try to add them to a morning smoothie. Thanks for this healthful tip Andrea Austin Fitness, Inc of Texas!

Hey did you know that rubbing the inside of the banana peel onto your teeth whitens them! Yeah, it's true. The banana peel is packed full of amazing vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and maganese which gets absorbed into your teeth and whitens them. First, brush your teeth as usual and then rub a section of the banana peel onto your teeth for about 2 minutes...try it and then smile into the mirror!  Do this twice daily in the morning and before bedtime
