Health Benefits of Bananas: They provide a source of several essential micronutrients, which are compounds, including vitamins, that your body requires in small amounts each day. Eating a banana boosts your intake of vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as vitamins B-1, -2, -3, -5, -6 and -9. Bananas also contain small amounts of beta-carotene, which gives bananas with their yellow color and provides an additional source of vitamin A.

Collectively, these vitamins support a number of physiological processes; vitamin A promotes healthy cellular growth; vitamins C and E serve as antioxidants that help prevent disease; vitamin K helps your body form blood clots in response to injury; and the B-vitamins support your metabolism.

Your body requires a number of essential minerals to maintain your health, and eating a banana provides your body with several of these nutrients. Bananas contain small amounts of iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, copper, selenium and fluoride.
