Be careful, next time when you decide to buy bananas if you enjoy eating them.
Most of the people can’t resist them because they are so delicious, but there is something that you need to be aware of before you buy these tropical fruits.
Banana which is ripped produces an ingredient known as TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor). This ingredient has the ability to battle abnormal cells. How the banana ripens, it develops dark spots on the banana skin. It is immunity enhancement, the quality is going to be greater if more dark patches it has. Banana contains TNF which has anti-cancer properties as outlined by a Japanese scientific research. Based on their research this substance might help in increasing the immune system. Consuming ripe bananas could reduce several lifestyle diseases and carcinogenesis.
Usually for fruits that are ripen, their nutrient content is slightly changed. The level of antioxidants increases, when banana is ripens and turn yellow. The starch content changes to simple sugars, which are easier to digest this is the case with full ripe bananas with dark spots on the banana skin.
In a test carried out by Japanese scientists it turned out that banana increased the quantity of white blood cells (lymphocyte), increased the immunity of the blood and developed the anti-cancer substance TNF. The advice would be to consume 1 to 2 bananas per day to improve the immunity.
It’s believed that bananas that have dark brown spots are usually more effective that the green skin banana or fresher bananas without the same dark patches or spots.
TNF is useful in fighting abnormal tumor cells within your body. It is proven that the activity of banana is comparable to that of Lentinan, a chemical defense stimulant which is intravenously administrated as an anti-cancer agent. Therefore ripe banana may act as an anti-cancer agent by stimulating the production of white blood cells in the human cell line and prevent cell mutation.
Note: Keep the bananas in the fridge when they ripe completely to reduce additional vitamin loss. Fresh bananas with brownish patches on the skin are ripe enough to eat immediately.
