What Vitamins Are in Bananas

Bananas are not just exotic moon shaped yellow fruits. They contain some of the most vital naturally occurring nutrients you will find anywhere in the plant world.

I wrote a very detailed article on the nutritional and health benefits of bananas, that give you precisely what is in them that makes them a vital addition to any fruit bowl. But in a nutshell for you, here are the vitamins (and minerals) that you can obtain from a single banana.

  • Potassium – We need potassium to help keep our blood pressure in order, and also to help our organic computer (brain) function normally.
  • Vitamin B6 & B12 – These essential B vitamins can lift you out of a depressed state, by turning foods into essential components that trigger to do its job, and they play an important role in developing the cells which make up our body.
  • Manganese – Is required for forming bone tissue, it improves fertility and aids with the blood clotting process.
  • Vitamin C – Is a huge percentage of the nutrients found in bananas, and is used to ward off infections and helps the development of our cells.
  • Tryptophan – If you are a big eater of bananas, I imagine that you live quite a great life! This is because of the tryptophan, and the other nutrients that help to keep you ‘tranquil’.

There are numerous other vitamins in a single banana, which you can find listed on our health benefits page (above).
