New Delhi: Banana's are perhaps one of the most consumed fruits in the world. A rich source of energy, bananas are also nature's most under-rated fruits.

Banana's pack a mean punch when it comes to being a super food, because it provides our body with everything that we need to thrive. So much so, that two banana's are enough to make up one full meal. This is because they’re packed full of nutrients, vitamins, fiber, and all-natural sugars, like sucrose and fructose.

Who doesn't like to eat those bright yellow and ripe bananas? We all do. However, what do we do when the bananas start developing brown spots? Most of you, we're sure, throw them away, thinking that they've gone bad.

We totally agree that the browning is a bit off-putting and unappetizing, but think again before you go throwing them away! Did you know that the more dark patches and spots a banana appears to have, the more ripe it is, and the more TNF it contains? TNF stands for Tumor Necrosis Factor, and it’s a cancer fighting substance that helps fight against abnormal cells in our bodies.

In addition to the brown spots and their immune system strengthening qualities, spotted bananas have a number of other health benefits, like fighting signs of depression, curing constipation, heartburn, blood pressure, anemia, ulcers and are also good for when you're feeling stressed or moody or going through PMS.

The below video explains all this and more on why spotted bananas are actually good for you!
