Bananas - the happy hormone!

Are you stressed? Or feeling down because of school work, job, an errand, an exam, an evaluation or your really just depressed? We'll your not alone. There are millions upon millions of people around the world who go through the same feeling that you are experiencing or just finished experiencing. A simple solution that most of us don't know is just to eat a banana. Yes, the humble yellow banana.

According to an article(

A banana a day keeps the doctor away... and the dermatologist...and the psychologist... and if current research can be trusted... death. It seems there's almost no ailment that the banana can't help cure. The word "banan" is Arabic for finger.

The banana is unique among fruits. Rather than growing on trees, bananas come from the world's largest herb, Musa sapientium, which is directly related to the orchid family. They are believed to be the first fruit farmed by man. Available all year round, they are currently the most popular fruit in North America.

And one of the things that a banana cures is, yes, you guessed it, depression. Like turkey, bananas contain tryptophan, a protein that converts to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is instrumental in facilitating relaxation. Low levels of serotonin are believed to cause mood disorders including depression.

The banana also cures illnesses from anemia, constipation, high blood pressure, morning sickness and even hangover(just blend the banana with milk and honey!).

The Oxford English Dictionary recognizes the term "going bananas" as a comical series of actions associated with moneys picking bananas. But the only comical monkey in these days of modern science is a fool who doesn't eat bananas. So, what are you waiting for? Dig in!
