The holiday season is over, maybe you’re feeling a bit let down. . . or sad? For a quick pick-me-up, grab a banana.
According to the Oprah doctors Oz and Roizen, not only do bananas help you think faster, but they help you think happier thoughts, too. That’s why they recommend having a daily banana.
Eating a banana a day may help your brain cells communicate better and enhance the effects of feel-good neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. Antioxidant-rich bananas are also a great source of vitamin B6, a nutrient credited with helping guard against Parkinson’s Disease. They’ll also help keep your blood pressure steady because they’re full of potassium. And they can reduce your risk of kidney cancer.
