Bananas are Great for ADD/ADHD

Almost everyday in the Highers household clan, we eat a Banana because this is one of the BEST fruit for ADD/ADHD. My knowledge of Bananas in the past are that they are great for athletes (potassium-prevents muscle cramps). 

But Bananas are not only rich in potassium but calcium, magnesium, and iron too. It’s also a great source of Vitamins A, C, niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin. But the most important fact about Bananas are that they contain ALL 8 essential amino acids which is verrry important for synthesizing neurotransmitters!! Therefore bananas are fuel for your brain.  Potassium is not only great for muscle craps but it also helps you with concentration and thinking clearer. This is an incredible fruit to eat prior to engaging in any strenuous mental activity.

Bananas are very high in sugar but it is a natural sugar. Which means that it can stimulate your brain so you can think faster and recall information quickly. Natural sugars are also absorbed slowly into your body (preventing radical swings in blood sugar level). Plus Bananas are a solube fiber, which means it dissolves in water and can be broken down by enzymes in the intestines, while insoluble fiber cannot. Because soluble fiber absorbs water in the intestinal tract it gives you a full feeling which is great for those trying to lose weight. Soluble fibers can also help with lowering cholesterol levels in the blood. 

Enthusiastically yours,
