Intestinal Health

Green bananas contain compounds called short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which nourish the cell tissue lining of the small intestine, dramatically enhancing the body's capacity to absorb nutrients.


Colonic Cancer Prevention

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), SCFAs also have a protective role in preventing cancer of the colon.


Childhood Shigellosis

According to a report in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, mature green bananas are effective in reducing the clinical severity of a diarrheal disease called childhood shigellosis.
