One medium banana contains around 2.7g of your daily dietary fibre intake. Fibre works to keep you regular, preventing constipation and helping to reduce the risk of bowel cancer. Bananas are also one of the few fruits that contain a type of fibre called resistant starch, which supports and maintains the health of our colons by promoting healthy levels of “friendly” bowel bacteria.
