2. Satisfy Sweet Tooth
If you want something sweet, grab a banana. Although some watery fruits may be very sweet, bananas are more filling than citrus fruits and its effects are felt for longer.
Bananas can also help regulate glucose production to reduce your cravings for sweets. People rush to open candy bars or indulge in cookies and other sweets because they have a depleted, empty feeling.
This is caused by a dip in blood sugar that follows a sudden surge. The pectin in bananas can help slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream and redress the blood sugar imbalance.
