An average banana contains 400mg Kalium, which helps maintain activities of cardiac muscle normally and control blood pressure. Therefore, pregnant women should add more bananas into daily meals to improve heart health.

2.Support losing weight

Banana helps control our hungry feeling and manage sugar levels in blood. They support the process of metabolizing, detox your bodies and improve digestion as well. For starters, bananas contain relatively few calories. An average banana contains just over 100 calories, yet it is also very nutritious and filling. They are also rich in fiber. Eating more fiber from fruit and vegetables has repeatedly been linked with lower body weight and weight loss. Furthermore, unripe bananas are packed with resistant starch, so they tend to be very filling and may reduce your appetite .

During pregnancy, many pregnant women usually feel stressful and uncomfortable. That is absolutely not good for the babies.

Serotonin will make pregnant women feel better and more comfotarble  a lot. Kalium in bananas helps provide oxygen to brains that will relieve stress and tiredness. So, why don’t expectant mothers eat one banana per day to protect and improve health for not only themselves but also their babies?

4.Relieves Constipation:

Bananas have high amounts of dietary fibre, which help in stimulating bowel movements and reduce bloating in the stomach due to gas. A medium sized banana contains about 6 grams of fibre. Constipation is a common side effect of pregnancy, as high levels of the hormone progesterone cause the relaxation of muscles in the bowels. Bananas can help fight this problem and improve bowel movements, thus relieving constipation.

Banana contains a lot of minerals such as Fe, P, Mg, I and many vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, E so it is a great source to provide nutrition for both fetuses and mothers. Besides, it contains many natural sugars such as glucose, fructose and saccharose.
