Banana has been traditionally used in Tropical countries as a natural cure for promoting healthy digestion and creating a feeling of youthfulness. Banana also contains invert sugar, which helps youthful growth and metabolism.


Banana, the tropical herb, has been traditionally used as a dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and blandness. Every part of this tree has a lot of medicinal values. It helps to promote the retention of calcium, phosphorus and nitrogen - all of which are essential in building up sound and regenerated tissues.

Banana for treating kidney stone

All the parts of banana are valuable in kidney disorders because of their low protein and salt content and high carbohydrate content. They are useful in uremia, a toxic condition of the blood die to kidney congestion and dysfunction. The innermost core of the banana plant and the juice from the stem are well-known remedies for urinary disorders. It has been used successfully in the treatment for the removal of stones in the kidney, gall bladder, and prostate.

Banana stem salad

1) Clean the banana stem carefully into small pieces and remove the fiber between the cuttings.
2) Then soak them in buttermilk for about two or three hours, after which you can drain the banana pieces and keep them in a glass bowl adding a little salt.
3) Apply a little salt to the onion rings, lettuce, beetroot, cucumber and tomato cubes.
4) Now mix the salted vegetables, apple and banana stem pieces with coriander, cumin and pepper.
