If you have blood sugar issues, green bananas are a great choice because they have a low glycemic index. Green bananas also contain more fiber, which can help improve digestion.

They are high in sugar, but some scientists claim that bananas are good for cancer patients. Since bananas with dark spots are immune system boosters.
5. Brown bananas
These bananas are full of tryptophan, which is used to fight depression and anxiety. They are also good for muscle and bone health. Brown bananas are therefore ideal as a post-workout snack.
