Bananas for a Healthier Colon

I have just learned that there is a common vitamin from bananas, corn, eggs, salmon, and spinach that’s great for our colon. I am talking about vitamin B6. Just imagine by simply getting your share of this nutrient could cut your risk of colon and rectal cancer.

In one of the largest studies to date on B6 and colon health, people with the highest intake of the vitamin -- from food and supplements -- reduced their risk of colorectal cancer by 20 to 30 percent. A healthy colon is just one reason to load up on B6-rich foods.
