Fast, Fun Facts -- minka.com.ph

We believe this kind of bite-sized trivia will be enough for you to be reminded about all the good stuff about living the healthy lifestyle. :)

Bananas are actually good for you. Really, really good for you. You won’t even have thought bananas could actually cheer you up! Yes, it’s a proven fact. It’s a great food to snack on when you’re feeling down. This has been scientifically proven due to the amino acids, tryptophan, and Vitamin B6 it contains. These three help our body produce serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter active in contributing to our happiness and well-being. So the next time you want to be in a better mood, grab a banana. (Friendly hint: Brushing with our eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush after eating it is good dental hygiene practice, too.)

Here’s another reason bananas are good for you: Bananas can help whiten your teeth. Its high levels of potassium, magnesium and manganese help take away some of the stains found in your teeth. This is true. You can try this: Using the inside of a banana’s peel or skin, rub your teeth with it. This will help exfoliating your teeth, helping in removing some of the surface stains. Try this for three weeks and they say you’ll see results. Although it’s good to keep in mind that this is not a substitute for a good, proper toothbrush.
