Combined Shape

Bananas are the perfect portable snack. Not only are they delicious to eat but they are also loaded with nutrients like potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium.

While you may be bananas for this particular fruit, how ripe the banana is could actually affect the health benefits it provides, according to TheRainForestSite.com.

Yes, a brown banana and a green banana have the potential to offer you vastly differing advantages then if you decided to eat a banana when it is perfectly yellow.

Bananas could be the ideal food if you are having some stomach issues or if you are having trouble keeping food down.

Do you choose your banana based on its ripeness?

Brown and squishy bananas are normally a turnoff, but this type of ripeness could offer even more sugar than other stages of banana ripeness.
