This is what happens to your body if you eat too many bananas

CI ate a banana not long ago, but already feel like eating another one? We all know that bananas are essential for iron health. According to an article published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, in addition to potassium, bananas provide a large amount of vitamin B6, which plays an important role in preventing insomnia. But be careful: don’t abuse it.

Researchers at Makerere University in Uganda, quoted by the Eat This, Not That portal, explain that bananas contain a substantial amount of tannic acid (a name given to several yellowish organic substances that are slightly soluble in water). And while it’s harmless in small doses, it can cause constipation (difficulty regulating stool progression or complete inability to have a bowel movement) and, in the long run, has a negative impact on the microbiome (the bacteria in the gut) or gut health.

Flatulence and bloating are two other consequences of overconsumption of bananas. This is because, this fruit contains sorbitol, a sugar substitute, which can trigger laxative effects in the body.
