Bananas are being praised as one of the most nutritious foods. Ounce for ounce they have nearly twice the potassium of orange juice. They are rich in the B vitamins, especially B6. They also contain magnesium and Vitamin C. Eat the strings of the banana, as they are rich in bioflavonoids. They come to you for free. Bioflavonoids are Vitamin C cousins. Other good sources of bioflavonoids are the pulp and white core of citrus fruits, the white pulp of green and red peppers, apricots, cherries, grapes and prunes.
