Eating a banana every day could make all the difference in your overall mood and even help you sleep, surprisingly enough.


If you're feeling a bit blue due to events out of your control, try treating yourself to the tasty, yellow fruit. Certified personal trainer Nancy Feinstein told The List, "Your mood will improve [when you eat bananas], and you will sleep better." She continued, explaining, "Bananas help produce serotonin, a hormone that affects our sleep cycle and moods." As noted by How Stuff Works, bananas contain tryptophan, which the body can convert into the mood-boosting brain neurotransmitter.



Even the physical appearance of a banana has the power to brighten up your day. As Feinstein notes, the shape of the fruit looks like a smile when turned sideways, which is sure to bring a little bit of momentary joy to anyone's day. That said, bananas should definitely not be substituted for anti-depressants. However, if you find yourself feeling down and in need of a quick mood-lifter, it can't hurt to chow down on your favorite yellow fruit.
