New Delhi : It's true that bananas are loaded with good nutrients but is it fine to eat banana daily. Experts say 'no, never'. Bananas are higher in calories than other fruits. A single one has about 105 calories and they have less fiber, so you won’t feel full longer.

A banana might be a good snack, but there are better options as well. Diabetic patients are often advised not to take banana because they are mid-level on the glycemic index. 

But, if banana is your favourite food then make sure that every stringy fiber is removed. Banana peels are higher in tyramine and are a snack in some countries. If you have allergies, you may have sensitivity to tyramine. 

Bananas are good for your heart in small doses. If you eat too many bananas, you can develop hyperkalemia. This means you have too much potassium in your blood.

Hyperkalemia can lead to irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, and temporary paralysis. Most people won’t eat enough bananas to get to hyperkalemia. If you have kidney disease to other diseases that come with an elevated potassium blood level or you are taking potassium supplements, you may be at risk.

On the other hand, bananas are very healthy for teeth. The calcium and vitamin D make for stronger bones and enamel. But, if you don't brush your teeth after eating banana then the starch and sugars on the fruit can temporarily change the pH level in your mouth and this can erode enamel.

If you eat too many bananas and are taking a lot of vitamin B6, you can damage your nerves. 

Bananas contain proteins that are very similar to natural latex. If you are sensitive to latex, you could be sensitive to bananas as well.

Stomach aches after a ripe banana can indicate an allergy. It may also be from a gastrointestinal disorder or infection.

Because excess of anything is never good; therefore, it is advisable to eat bananas, not daily but sometime in a week as per your body.

Eat wisely, stay healthy!
