Warning: R-18!

Haha. Got this one from my officemate. There's really nothing to be afraid of. For every bite of banana, you will feel relaxation.

Enough of that funny image. Read on to know the health benefits of banana.

As for my stock knowledge, all I know is that BANANAS are as good as SLEEPING PILLS. I will not even recommend you to eat banana servings if you want to stay up longer.
Bananas are rich in magnesium that induces relaxation until we fall asleep.

Now, let me do some research:

• According to an old wives' tale, the inside of a banana peel makes a great shoe polish for patent leather shoes. (We haven't tested this, so you're on your own.)
• The earliest dessert recipe ever written was a banana recipe--a mushy mixture of bananas, almonds, and honey.

• If your kids have a tough time falling asleep, give them a banana. Like a cup of warm milk, a banana is a sleep enhancer.

• The average American eats 26 pounds of bananas per year, making it our most consumed fruit.

• There are more than 200 varieties of bananas in the world: they come in all shapes and sizes, from small finger fruits to purple plantains.

• The biggest banana split ever made was 4.55 miles long!
