Core Tip: A new study has found that eating bananas can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.
A new study has found that eating bananas can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

The potassium in the fruit combats the hardening and ­narrowing of arteries, scientists discovered. The vital mineral — which spuds, broccoli and sprouts are also rich in — was found to aid blood flow to the heart and brain and reduce the risk of clots, reports The Sun.

Its effect on the arteries emerged in US lab tests on mice. Researchers at the University of Alabama fed some of the mice a diet low in the mineral while ­others got extra.

Dr Mike Knapton, from the British Heart Foundation, said the study in mice showed that not eating enough potassium leads to the hardening of arteries.

He added: “With more research, we might be able to see if the disease forms in humans in a similar way and develop treatments.”
