 Interestingly, bananas can either be a cause of constipation or a source of constipation relief, depending on their ripeness. “Unripened, green bananas are constipating,” says Tammy Lakatos. “But ripe bananas are very high in soluble fiber, which in some cases can help to push waste through the bowels, so bananas can also be helpful in eliminating constipation issues.” For constipation relief, be sure to pick bananas that are good and ripe.

Awesome!  I knew they were constipating, but i didn't realize they are helpful in fixing constipation!  This makes sense.

My fater in law just taught me that if you rub the inside of a banana peel on your nails then wipe them off it makes them shiny.
