Eating Banana Skins Can Boost Weight Loss, Improve Sleep, Dietician Claims

The humble banana has long been hailed a health superhero, thanks to its potassium-rich content. But now, a top dietitian has now claimed that we should be munching on the fruit’s skin as well to really reap the health benefits. Susie Burrell says that eating the peel can improve your sleep, enhance your skin and even boost weight loss. “Specifically, you will increase your overall fiber content by at least ten percent as a lot of dietary fiber can be found in the skin of the banana. You will get almost 20 percent more vitamin B6 and almost 20 percent more vitamin C and you will boost both your potassium and magnesium intake,” she said. But don’t worry, when it comes to eating banana skin, Burrell does not recommend you just start munching on the peel once you’ve finished the inside. Instead, she suggests putting it in a smoothie, baked goods or a curry to boost your nutritional intake.
