Bananas are the ultimate portable power snack. They're nutrient dense, easily available, and packed with accessible energy.

Potassium Power

Potassium is an important mineral that helps to regulate heart function and maintain normal blood pressure. And bananas just happen to be one of the best natural sources of potassium. 

Gut Healthy Fibre

Bananas may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think gut health, but fibre plays an important role in preventing inflammation in the gut. The right kind of fibre, i.e. bananas, can also help aid digestion and reduce constipation.

Mighty Magnesium

Magnesium plays a number of crucial roles in regulating healthy body functions. It's vital for the regulation of muscle and the nervous system, the promotion of bone and blood health, energy production and blood sugar levels. Making bananas a supercharged inclusion in your everyday diet. 

Vitamin B6

All of the B Vitamins are essential to health, and B6 is particularly important for keeping the nervous system regulated and the immune system healthy, which has rarely been as vital as it is in this day and age! B6 is also great for promoting healthy skin.

Vitamin C

Bananas are rich in Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant and immune booster, helping to fight off common virus causing the flu. Vitamin C also assists your body to absorb iron from iron rich plant-based foods (e.g. beans, chickpeas and lentils). This is particularly important for non-meat eaters, as including vegetables high in vitamin C with your meal can help your body absorb more iron.

Fun Fact

Did you know bananas are thought to be the world's first fruit? Though modern bananas bear little resemblance to their first forebears! They're also officially a berry.
