Banana Overview

One of the most notable ingredients in bananas is silica, a relative of silicone. Proponents claim that the silica in bananas can help increase collagen production, the natural proteins that help keep skin hydrated and smooth.

Research suggests that antioxidants can reduce inflammation and protect against chronic conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Studies show that banana peels have a number of components that offer possible benefits:

  • A 2018 review showed that banana peels are rich in phenolics, which have strong antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and are associated with many health benefits.
  • According to a 2011 study, banana peels have a number of bioactive compounds, such as carotenoids and polyphenols.
  • A 2012 study found extracts of banana peel to have anti-inflammatory properties.
