“We are buying 100 acres of land in Honduras to grow Chatas senisa which is a starch-less natural banana. This is a good cereal for both women and children.” – Dr. Sebi
Dr. Sebi believes that starch-less, natural bananas are a worthy addition to your diet, as they are more nutritious. Bananas help in the formation of a protective mucous layer in the stomach.
Consuming bananas helps balance acidity in the stomach.
Bananas are a decent addition to one’s alkaline diet since they are rich in calcium and packed with minerals. Here are more facts about bananas, and what Dr. Sebi thinks of them.
Are Regular Bananas Alkaline?
Regular bananas are broadly classified as alkaline with a pH of neutral value closer to seven. However, this greatly depends on the ripeness of the fruit. Unripe bananas have a pretty acidic value of between 4.5 to 5.2.
Unripe bananas have malic acid, oxalic acid, and citric acid. These acids reduce significantly as the bananas ripe. Fully ripped bananas have a pH that makes them more alkaline.
Bananas have alkaline properties that help counter acid reflux in the body. Additionally, they come loaded with essential minerals that include potassium, calcium, and magnesium that are beneficial to the body.
Fully ripped bananas have a high potassium content that enriches the alkalinity of the fruit. This also helps reduce high acidity levels in the stomach and the esophagus.
This fruit is an excellent choice for anyone that needs a healthy snack in between meals. The high fiber content in bananas keeps the stomach occupied longer time. This will reduce unnecessary food intake, making it an excellent choice for anyone on a weight loss diet.
Are Regular Bananas Healthy?
Regular bananas are packed with various nutrients, including vitamins, carbohydrates, calcium, and minerals such as iron and potassium.
Bananas help in the replenishment of energy hence an excellent choice for people who exercise. They also help achieve electrolyte balance in the human system.
Regular bananas are a high-calorie snack hence not a good choice for anyone looking for a low-calorie snack that they can indulge in every few hours. They have enough calories to help you put on weight; hence anyone on a weight loss journey should look for another alternative.
Regular bananas are rich in tryptophan which is an amino acid that reduces mental performance and reaction time. This is why sometimes you feel sleepy when you eat bananas.
They also contain a high dose of magnesium that aids in muscle relaxation hence not ideal to consume when starting your day.
What Bananas Are Approved By Dr. Sebi
Dr. Sebi approves the burro bananas and the baby bananas for anyone on an alkaline diet. These two types of bananas are considered 100% natural and packed with various health benefits.
Their highest mineral content in potassium that helps improve brain functionality and regulates blood pressure.
On the other hand, bananas such as plantain and Cavendish are considered unnatural. They are made by slicing two natural bananas to make hybrid bananas. This gene-splicing uses starch that covers carbonic acid when consumed.
Consuming unnatural bananas leads to mineral deficiency that leads to anemia, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Bananas are recommended for anyone on an alkaline diet. Packed with essential minerals such as iron, zinc, and potassium, they are healthy for daily intake.
