You can make a lip-smacking dessert with bananas, cranberry, honey and pine nuts. Banana is a rich source of potassium that is essential for healthy heart, liver, brain, bones, but, most of all, for muscles. We all need potassium every day. For kids, daily potassium intake should be 16-30 mg/kg. Scientific findings show that 100 mg of banana flesh contains an amazing amount of potassium – 376 mg. In addition, the same 100 mg provides us with 1 mg sodium, 8 mg calcium, 0.7 mg iron and 16 mg phosphorus. Potassium helps regulate water-salt metabolism and excrete excessive water from our body. That’s why bananas can be a natural remedy for edema. This fruit is also beneficial for those suffering heart diseases. We have already told about cranberry health benefits in our previous articles. You family will enjoy this yummy and healthy fruit dessert.
