And what do with itchy mosquitoes bites have to do with bananas, you may ask? While was scanning several health benefits of eating bananas, I found that you can take the peel of the banana and rub it on mosquito bites to reduce the irritation and swelling! Momma Betty always says that “A banana is a pill in a peel”. She swears that eating a banana in the evening before you go to bed will help you get to sleep faster and get a more restful sleep!

Like most fruits, the banana is a healthful food that can be eaten without any problem. However, diabetics should consult with a physician or dietician to determine if bananas should be included in a diet that aims to reduce the consumption of carbohydrates. Anyone with an allergy to bananas should also avoid the fruits to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction.
