Yes! Bananas are a heart-healthy food when eaten as part of a low-fat balanced diet. Although many factors contribute to heart health, bananas are a good source of potassium, essential to the health of your heart and nervous system. Potassium is needed for proper muscle contraction and your heart is the hardest working muscle in your body. Some studies have also shown that low potassium is linked to high blood pressure and increased risk of stroke. Instead of an apple a day, a banana a day may do a better job of keeping the doctor away.
