Banana is one of the most beneficial healthy foods for our body, but it is important that you know its effects on our body if we take it on an empty stomach

Breakfast is a fundamental part of our day-to-day, so it is important to eat a healthy meal so that we start the morning with energy. Most people always rush to make the first meal of the day, so they grab the first thing they have on hand for breakfast. 

That is why the banana is a good resource to avoid leaving on an empty stomach but is it really so good to eat it on an empty stomach?

Banana is a great source of magnesium and phosphorus for our body. In addition, it has a high content of vitamin A and C that helps prevent the appearance of colds and diseases. 

On the other hand, the banana is also widely consumed to improve intestinal transit. 

Among its functions are to detoxify our body from external harmful agents, speed up weight loss and increase energy or restore the state of the muscles after an intense exercise routine. In addition, it also helps to improve the immune system and prevent the appearance of diseases.

For all this, the banana has very positive effects on our body, but is it really so healthy to take it for breakfast? 

For many nutritionists, this fruit would not be the most ideal to take as soon as we wake up. And is that its high sugar content, 25%, can make it useless to eat it as a substitute for breakfast.

The energy it brings you will be momentary and fleeting, but you will immediately feel tired and feel hungry again. Professionals who believe this claim that it will cause your body to crave more sweet foods and during the day you have more appetite you will want to satisfy with anything.

According to a recent study, bananas are a great source of potassium, but having too much potassium in our bloodstream can cause a condition known as hyperkalemia. And when left untreated, hyperkalemia can sometimes cause serious heart problems and muscle weakness, and temporary paralysis.

“A dosage that is higher than 18 grams of potassium can increase the risk of hyperkalemia in adults,” says Amber O’Brien, RD from the Mango Clinic.

There are also certain groups of people that are at higher risk for hyperkalemia, including those with “congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, diabetes or those taking certain blood pressure medications which impact potassium levels,” says Diana Gariglio-Clelland, a registered dietitian.
