Yellow, firm bananas are rich in antioxidants that protect our bodies from various illnesses. The bananas have more sugar as they are getting older, but besides they have more sugar than the green ones, this kind of bananas also contain dopamine, an antioxidant which can reduce the risks of heart diseases and degenerative diseases. Although the dopamine is usually known that acts as feel-good chemical in the brain, that’s not the case with the dopamine in the banana.
