Well known for their Cavendish variety, bananas actually have a wide number of types. They're primarly eaten on their own or as a topping, but can also be used to sweeten dishes.

Alongside the minerals, bananas also have a good selection of vitamins including B6 and C. Bananas also contain dopamine the well know neurotransmitter, oral intake however does not affect mood, rather only acts as an antioxidant.
