How it works: The slippery inside of a banana contains sugars which,
when eaten, soothe haemorrhoids – swollen, painful veins around the anus.
They do this through a process called osmosis, in which water is drawn out of
the cells and, as a result, allows them to pop back inside.
The sugars also have antibiotic qualities that can protect the infected area
from bacteria, so you get twice the benefits!
