This research finding sounds a little crazy. Eating three bananas cuts your risk of a stroke, scientists say. Having a banana each for breakfast, lunch and dinner would provide enough potassium to reduce the chances of suffering a blood clot on the brain by around 21 per cent.
In the UK the average daily potassium intake is around 1,600 milligrams, less than the recommended 3,500mg. The average banana contains around 500 milligrams of potassium.
Eating three bananas a day sounds fun but bananas also contain sugar so it’s a balancing act I guess.
