Finally on this list of reasons for eating a banana every day (if you don’t like the texture of a banana, add them to a morning smoothie or protein shake to reap the rewards) is the benefit of the potassium in bananas on our vision.

If you struggle with dry eyes, bananas could help, as potassium helps to make the tears that keep our eyes lubricated (even when we’re not crying!).

Not only that, bananas contain carotenoids, compounds that the body uses to manufacture vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for good eye health and vision.
