Eating healthy on a budget often means finding bargains that may be perfectly nourishing, but not that attractive. Slicing a banana on your oatmeal in the morning may be part of your health regimen to provide potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese and many other nutrients.
If you’ve ever considered buying a manager’s special on fruit that was ripe and had dark spots, but worried it might not be as nutritious, reconsider now. Not only do these bananas have all the same nutrients as their bright yellow counterparts, but they also contain more of one substance, TNF—Tumor Necrosis Factor.
What is TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor)?
TNF is a potent foe to abnormal cells in the body. In fact, the more brown spots you see on bananas, the more they enhance your immune system, unless the skin is completely brown, then the banana loses nutrients.
Japanese scientists researched the TNF found in bananas and found that this substance can help fight serious conditions, including cancer. It’s no wonder bananas are so popular in Japan. As the fruit ripens, the banana produces more TNF, so those manager specials are a super bargain, offering a lower price and higher potency of TNF.
The study in Japan compared the health benefits of several types of fruit. Besides bananas, the researchers looked at pears, persimmons, watermelon, apples and grapes. While all the fruit had some benefit for the body, they all paled in comparison to the ripe banana that provided the most benefit.
Here’re Some of the Incredible Things Bananas Can Do for our Body
If you have ripe bananas at home that you can’t use right away, store them in your refrigerator before they ripen to the point of losing nutrients. Once their skin is completely brown or split, the health benefits diminish.
