Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)

  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)

Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

Natural Treatment for Hypertension

My father is on his 80s already and still works till to this day.  I and others who knew him admire him for that.  Who would have thought that he still eat and drink anything he want, without having to worry about high blood pressure?  What do you think is the reason?

I am not an authority on this subject but I somehow read an article that opened my eyes.  I somehow found out the reasons behind why people have or do not have hypertension or high blood pressure.  If you already have or suffering from it, natural treatment is highly recommended.

A gathered report indicates nutritional factors such as essential fatty acids, potassium, magnesium, and sodium are principal in high blood pressure treatment.  Sodium holds excess water in the circulatory system and blood pressure rises.  This to me is the obvious reason why my father up to this day has no high blood pressure… he likes to eat fish and banana.

Natural Therapies for Hypertension.

• Study shows that the addition of olive oil to the diet combined with a slight reduction in saturated fat intake reduced the dosage of antihypertensive drugs by 48 percent.

• Just the addition of supplemental potassium to the diet can markedly reduce the need for blood pressure medications. A 1999 study showed that two bananas a day, a rich source of potassium, can control blood pressure as well as ACE-inhibitor drugs without the cost and side effects. Two bananas could lower blood pressure by 10 percent, or about 14-16 points for most patients with mild hypertension. It has been estimated that a reduction of 2 points on the blood pressure scale could reduce strokes by 14 percent and coronary heart disease by 8 percent.

• A 1993 study showed that 3000 milligrams of fish oil significantly reduces blood pressure.

Low vitamin C stores in the body are associated with high blood pressure. In 1999 a small study showed that 500 milligrams of supplemental vitamin C significantly reduced blood pressure, about three times better than patients who received a placebo.
