WAYS TO USE BANANAS PEELS
By Happiness Nkan
Banana is one of the most consumed fruits in the world. Its high content of phosphorus and its tasty flavor make it ideal for every diet. However, if you usually throw the banana peel away, try considering these ideas below. Just as the case with other fruits, the banana peel is rich in vitamin C and fiber. In fact, the increased amount of fiber from banana itself is not found in the pulp, but in the peel. Below you will find the best uses of banana peel.
Use Against Constipation
We do know that a high consumption of fiber facilitates bowel movements. However, sometimes the daily habits and pace of life does not allow us to follow a balanced diet. For this reason, it is not uncommon to suffer from constipation. Fortunately, the banana peel is a very effective remedy in this regard. Containing a large dose of dietary fiber, it will force the stomach to work properly. Knowing that most of us are not accustomed to eating the banana peel, doing it can be a bit difficult, because of its taste. For easier consumption, you can blend bananas (banana smoothie) in which you can add a piece of banana peel.
Reduces LDL Cholesterol And Blood Pressure
We already know that the LDL or bad cholesterol affects our veins and arteries. For this reason, a low-salt diet and rich in phosphorus is ideal to keep it under control. Many people opt for bananas in order to improve or control their cholesterol. However, do you know that most of phosphorus content in the banana lies in the peel? The phosphorus content in the banana peel significantly reduces blood pressure levels. With a piece of banana peel in your diet you can say goodbye to high blood pressure.
Surely you have heard that the banana is rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that improves our mood. Tryptophan as a chemical element promotes the production of serotonin. When this hormone is produced at optimum levels, it helps us to feel happier and enthusiastic. Conversely, when it is not produced in the correct amount, it is possible to fall into depressive states. Do improve your mood by taking the banana peel, which contains higher amounts of the same chemical elements also present in the pulp. Make a banana smoothie and a piece of the peel.
You got up in the morning, looked in the mirror and you noticed an annoying pimple? Do you want a quick fix? Take a piece of banana skin and rub it directly on the pimple that bothers you. The idea is to carry out this procedure in the evening before bedtime so that the chemical elements of the peel will have the time to act, eliminating the pimple.
Leave Your Furniture Home As New
The wooden furniture is difficult to clean. Sometimes we believe that the only option is to resort to chemicals, but in this way we do not respect the environment. Say goodbye to these concerns with the banana peel. Just rub the peel on the furniture that you want to shine. Afterwards, clean the residue with a damp cotton cloth. It is important that this cloth is not wet and that is free of any type of chemical product.
The same effect that the banana peel can do for the wooden furniture can do with shoes as well. The process is exactly the same: you take a piece of banana peel and rub directly on the shoe. Even if the shoes are a bit battered, you can make them look better. This is due to the natural oils of the banana peel. You must also be sure to wipe with a damp cloth or dry cloth to remove any residue.
Now you know you can benefit from banana peels as you do from the whole bananas too.
