Banana more than food

  1. Bananas are so natural to everyone, which makes us forget how far they come and how they are used in their tropical countries of origin not only as food but also as medicine and raw material for fiber.]

Growing your own banana.

  1. Of the edible bananas one can easily grow only the dwarf banana (M. acuminata cv. 'Dwarf Cavendish'). This variety can grow up to 2 meters. The plant requires a lot of water, a lot of food, a high humidity and a lot of light. The dwarf banana is not very sensitive to low temperatures, in winter a minimum temperature of 10 ° C is sufficient. Other wild banana varieties can be grown in a similar way.

Traditional applications

  1. It is an excellent, easily digestible and energizing food, often considered the first choice for infants and athletes. We all know that, of course. We are, as it were, brought up from cradle to grave and presented with banana.

Research results:

  1. The popular banana has been extensively researched. Banana juice was shown to be effective in gelatin culture against the tuberculosis bacillus Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Fitzpatrick 1954). In rats, a dose of 5 grams of banana per animal per meal was found to be effective in gastric ulcers (Best et al. 1984). A water extract of concentrated banana puree has been proven to inhibit bacterial growth for Bacillus cereus, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus stereothermophilus and Clostridium sporogenes (Richter and Vore 1989).

Historical according to Grieve

  1. In the old 'Modern Herbal van Grieve from 1931, the Musa is mentioned as an anti-poison against snake bites. She writes' The use of Plantain juice as an antidote for snake-bite in the East has been reported in recent years by the Lancet, an alleged cure at Colombo (reported in the Lancet, April 1, 1916), and again, in the same year, at Serampore: 'A servant of the Principal of the Government Weaving College was bitten by a venomous snake in the foot. The Principal applied a ligature eight inches above the bitten part and then cut it with a lancet and applied permanganate of potash, making the wound bleed freely. He then extracted some juice from a plantain tree and gave the patient about a cupful to drink. After drinking the plantain juice the man seemed to recover a little, and the wound was washed. He was made to walk up and down, and in the morning, when the ligature was removed, the man was declared cured. '
