The cancer fighter

Research at Teikyo University Japan found that though these are sweeter, spotted bananas contain 8 times more TNF or Tumor Necrosis Factor than what is found in green bananas. TNF identifies and breaks down the abnormal cancerous cells responsible for developing tumors. TNF also improves immunity by helping white blood cells identify faster areas of inflammation and infection in the body.

4Brown bananas

Brown bananas are the sweetest but have high levels of potassium. The Linus Pauling Institute says that potassium-rich foods can prevent diseases like osteoporosis. They also contain tryptophan which alters mood, improves conditions like anxiety and promotes better sleep. The thing with bananas is that the older the fruit, the faster they are digested in the body which is why brown bananas are best for digestive problems. But, the problem with bananas and any fruit is that the older they are, the less the nutrient content which is why you should keep them in the fridge to keep the loss to a minimum.
