The health benefits of bananas are undeniable. But, it’s not only the flesh that can boost your health. The peel can do wonders too.

 Although we normally throw banana peels in the garbage as soon as we finish eating the fruit, this appears to be completely wrong. For instance, people in India eat the peel as well because it’s abundant in vitamins and minerals too.

Read on and find out how you can make the most of your banana including the peel.

  1. Whiten your teeth

To whiten your teeth simply rub them with the inner part of the peel on a regular daily basis for two weeks. You’ll be able to see positive results after a few treatments.

  1. Remove warts

Banana peels can effectively eliminate warts on your skin. Apply a piece of banana peel on the affected skin and secure with a band-aid. Leave overnight. Repeat until the wart falls off.

  1. Treat acne and wrinkles

If you have sensitive and wrinkle-prone skin, banana peels are just the thing for you. They pack a lot of antioxidants that can effectively reduce any signs of aging. Plus, they are great moisturizers that nourish and deep-hydrate your skin. To reap the benefits, rub your face or the sensitive or inflamed parts with the inner part of a banana peel. Leave it on for half an hour then rinse.

  1. Reduce the symptoms of psoriasis

While it’s true that banana skin can’t cure psoriasis, it can actually reduce the symptoms of this skin condition significantly. As in the previous treatment, rub the affected skin with the inner part of the peel on a regular basis.

  1. A powerful analgesic
    If you suffer from pain anywhere on your body, simply apply some banana skin on the spot. It’s a powerful analgesic that will reduce the pain without you having to take pain-killers.
  2. Weight loss tool

The first association with bananas is definitely their high potassium content. However, most of this mineral is actually found in the peel. Potassium is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to weight loss. It boosts your metabolism so that you burn more fat and have more energy at the same time.
