10 Amazing Benefits of Banana

Have you ever wonder what a banana can do for your health? You will never look at banana the same way again after discovering 10 facts about this fantastic fruit which benefits our health and making it a reason to add them in your diet.

Energy - Bananas supply proper carbohydrates that our muscles need to replace the muscle glycogen (muscle sugar) used and they have the antioxidants that may help speed recovery.

They’re Diet-Friendly - A medium banana is 110 calories and provides 30 grams of carbs and 3 grams fiber. In addition to filling fiber, bananas contain resistant starch, a type of carbohydrate you can’t digest, but helps you feel fuller longer. A banana can have 2-3 grams of resistant starch (the greener it is, the more resistant starch it contains). This makes them a great mid-afternoon snack, or a perfect pre-workout snack if you eat them 1 hour before your workout.

Potassium - A banana has 422 mg potassium while being sodium-free. The high potassium:sodium ratio helps to neutralize the blood-pressure raising effects of sodium in your diet. Bananas help the body's circulatory system deliver oxygen to the brain, helping maintain regular heartbeat and proper water balance in your body. Adults need 4,700 milligrams of potassium a day, so a medium banana provides nearly 10 percent of the daily requirement.

Building Stronger Bone - Eating bananas helps prevent kidney cancer, protects the eyes against macular degeneration and builds strong bones by increasing calcium absorption.

PMS - Bananas contain 20 percent of the daily requirements of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 helps the body make nonessential amino acids to create healthy cells. Vitamin B6 regulates blood glucose levels and helps us in times of stress and helps to suppress cranky moods. It also helps produce insulin, hemoglobin and antibodies that help fight infections.

Increase Brain Power - Potassium-packed fruits helps learning because it makes the pupils more alert. Students find that they have more brain power and do better on exams when they eat bananas at breakfast and lunch.

Iron - Bananas are rich in iron too, and can help individuals with anemia. Iron rich foods, such as bananas help stimulate production of hemoglobin in the blood.

Help Smokers Quit - Bananas contain B-Vitamins and other minerals that lessen the effect of nicotine withdrawal both physically and psychologically.

Increase happiness - Bananas release a mood regulating substance called Tryptophan (one of the 22 standard amino acids and an essential amino acid in the human diet) which is converted to serotonin in the brain and thus boost mood and reduce feeling blue. Men and women need 420 mg and 320 mg of the mineral per day, respectively. Low levels of this mineral are linked to depression, anxiety, irritability and other mood disorders.

Bowel Health - Bananas are high in soluble fiber which helps stop constipation and helps to restore and maintain regular bowel function.

Are you brave enough for Free Diving?

Ever tried to hold your breath for as long as you can? Most of us have. Well there's a sport that people hold their breath for a really long time and dive down to depths that most human never even approached before without any supports.

As we know, this sport is called Free Diving and it involves going down hundreds of feet into cold and dark waters by holding his or her breath until resurfacing rather than on the use of a breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. It's considered an extreme sport because it is very dangerous and might even cost your life. It's an experimental sport because it is revealing human capabilities which had never even been imagined. It's becoming more popular every year and many people are so interested to try it.

Free diving has been around for a very long time. It was how the ancient Greeks went down for sponges. Without so much as a snorkel, they'd dive to around 100 feet. Today's free divers go down a lot further for fun and sport. They want to join the sea world without disturbing it. No tanks, no bubbles, no noise.

And because of free diving, scientists now know that humans are closer to dolphins than had been thought. Just like dolphins, when we go into cold water a reflex kicks in which slows down our pulse; shifts blood from our extremities to our heart and to our brain. Our spleen contracts releasing oxygen rich blood into our arteries.

Is under the water a place humans belong? Free divers think so. They point out that the amniotic fluid in the womb where a fetus lives for nine months is very similar to seawater. That if a newborn is immediately submerged in a pool it will swim the breaststroke and be able to hold its breath for 40 seconds. It will retain this ability until it learns how to walk. But the human body has several adaptations under diving conditions, which stem from the mammalian diving reflex. These adaptations enable the human body to endure depth and lack of oxygen far beyond what would be possible without the reflex.

Here are some example of the training to be a free diver.
  • Equalizing Training - Your ears are the most likely physical reason to limit your depth. You can only go as deep as you can equalise your ears. 
  • Technique Training - Having a good technique will save you oxygen, give you better hydrodynamics, and make your dive more enjoyable. This is best practised on the surface in a pool and while doing dynamic apnea.
  • Breath Hold Training - You need to get “comfortable” holding your breath. This training can include maximums, Co2 tolerance and Hypoxic tolerance.
  • Relaxation Training - This will make your dive 100 times more enjoyable and save you lots of oxygen.
  • Lung Training - Slowly adapting your lungs to handle the depth and compression. This can be done with certain yoga exercises and FRC training in shallow pools.
  • Cardiovascular Training - Gives you a good cardiovascular ability (high Co2 max – oxygen uptake), strong heart and a low resting pulse.
  • High Intensity Cardio Training - Makes you able to tolerate high levels of lactic acid and making use of the anaerobic energy system.
  • Muscular Training - Gives you muscles at the right places, trained for what you want them to do and making your movements more energy efficient and relaxed.
  • Flexibility Training/Yoga - This Training will give you better knowledge of your body and make your muscles more relaxed. Flexibility will give you better technique and decrease the risk of squeeze.
  • Mental Training - Mental strength and self knowledge is imperative for freediving. Train meditation, visualisation and yoga.
Above are just the data we collected from the internet and it is just for references, if you wish to know more details about Free Diving, please look for the pros with license. Are you a free diver? Or do you have any experience in diving? Share with us.;​​​​​​​​​​​

Know your protein powders well before you consume.

Protein is one of the three major, or macro, nutrients. Unlike carbohydrates and fats (the other two types of macronutrents), proteins are comprised of nitrogen-containing groups called amino acids. There are about 20 different types of amino acids commonly found in foods. All of them are important for building and maintaining muscle, but 8 are vital. These are what’s known as the Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). Contrary to what most athletes believe, there is no actual requirement for protein; the body simply has a requirement for the eight essentials. The EAAs cannot be synthesized in any of your tissues, so they must be obtained through high protein foods. Lean meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, cheese, and soybeans are good food sources of protein. Powdered whey, casein, egg, and soy proteins offer the same amino acids as whole food sources in more concentrated doses – with lower levels of calories, fat, carbs, cholesterol, and other non-protein ingredients.

Whey Proteins
Currently the undisputed king of proteins. Here’s why: whey proteins are quickly and easily digested (hence the “fast-acting” description that they’re often given), they are loaded with essential amino acids (EAAs) – including the three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), and they contain subcomponents (microfractions) that appear to provide benefits above and beyond amino acids and elemental nitrogen. Whey is one of two major dairy proteins and accounts for about 20% of the protein in milk.

Casein Proteins
Comprising 80% of the protein in milk, casein is the dominant dairy protein. Oft referred to as a “slower-acting” or “time-released” protein, because they are digested and absorbed much more slowly than whey or soy proteins. Casein proteins are especially useful when taken at bedtime and during other prolonged periods without eating.

Milk Proteins
Milk proteins are pretty much what you’d expect: dried milk with most of the fat and carbohydrate removed. Like liquid moo juice, powdered milk proteins are about 20% whey protein and 80% casein protein, so utilization is somewhere in between the two.

Egg Proteins
Ask any dietitian, “What’s the best source of protein?” and eggs will probably top the list. In fact, most nutrition textbooks still refer to eggs as the “gold standard” for protein quality. With loads of essential amino acids (EAAs) and some of the highest scores in all measures of protein quality, we’re not going to argue. Naturally dairy-free, eggs are a great alternative to whey, casein, and whole milk proteins for those with milk allergies or severe lactose intolerance.

Soy Proteins
Vegetarian? Don’t do well with dairy or egg? Go green. Like their animal counterparts, soy proteins contain all of the required amino acids in sufficient amounts to support muscle growth and development.

Blended Proteins
If you can only afford one type of protein, this is probably the type that you should go with. Combining faster-, intermediate-, and slower-protein sources in one convenient place, blended proteins give you more sustained protein digestion than single-source proteins like whey, casein, egg, or soy.

Our Graduation Trip, Perhentian Island

We have decide to go Perhentian Island for our trip out of Redang Island and Lang Tengah. It's quite a good choice to go to Perhentian Island cause all of us didn't step on it before and it's a really great experience. Please allow me to show you the fun we had there.

It's US, total of 8 person.

Feeding fish / fishes with bread.

Colorful fish and I saw Nemo. =)

This is where you can jump from. The captain only allow us to jump from the 1st level, but next time I would like to try jump from the top. You'll never feel that alive after you jump, trust me. But be safe only if you know how to swim or have a good guide from your captain.

This is how we jump!
THIS place is a must to go and JUMP if you're going to Perhentian island. Comment below if you jumped before or wish to jump, we can always share our experience.

Then captain bring us to this place for shower. What's so special about this place, the water here is from the mountain and it's very cold. If you are going over to Perhentian island, this is a place you have to come to feel the mountain water, it feel so fresh, clear and clean.

It's me for the first one

Saw all those photo? Everyone of us are really enjoy showering with the water. The last photo of mine can show you how great it feels. =)  And now it's Simon and my sexy back. Gotta train more on my back to get a nicer figure. Extra place we went are, Long Island where all the tourists are, especially foreigner. And the wave there is really nice, where you can go surfing if only you have surfing knowledge. It's not advisable to go too far beyond the beach. You never know what the wave can do to you. Safety first!

This is our only one graduation trip after we finish 3 years Diploma. This 3 years, we really know each others well and did changed / grow a lot. 3 years is like it's just been 3 day or weeks, time flies real fast and it would be the best memories we had. The relationship between everyone of us will still be so strong until our old days. Will blog about my next trip to Bali this July after I come back.
