Bananas for Stomach Health

932If you suffer from painful indigestion or stomach ulcers, it may be time to reach for a banana. Not only do bananas provide your body with necessary potassium, they also can protect your stomach lining from damaging acids and ulcer formation. Thanks to a prebiotic known as fructooligosaccharide (FOS), bananas provide your gut with healthy bacteria.*

It’s safe to have a banana a day. One way to keep your bananas fresh longer is by separating individual bananas from the bunch. If you want to keep your bunch intact, cover the collective tip with plastic wrap (keeping oxidizing air out).
