Bananas are a significant source of magnesium and potassium. Below are the many health benefits associated with consuming the daily recommended amount of potassium and magnesium.
- Magnesium is responsible for bone health, muscle/nerve function, blood glucose levels, immunity, and production of energy and protein.
Magnesium helps to relax the muscles by moving calcium, which excites skeletal muscle, out of muscles and into the bloodstream where it can be used somewhere else, according to The Sleep Solution.
- Potassium is used by the body to process/use proteins, metabolize carbohydrates into energy, maintain body growth, control acid-base balance, and control electrical activity of the heart.

Low levels of potassium are evidenced by an irregular heart rate, muscle spasms, and extreme fatigue. All of which may interrupt sleeping patterns.
