Combination of Banana and Milk- Good or Bad?

Whether the famous combination of milk and banana is good or bad for health has always been in debate. While many suggest that both make an excellent combination, some recommend against consuming them together. When we asked expert Dietitian and Psychologist from Care For Life, Harish Kumar, this is what he had to say, "We do not recommend this combination as it may prove to be very harmful to the body. Even if you want to consume them, you can first take milk and after 20 minutes, eat a banana. You must also avoid banana milkshake as it hinders the digestion process and disturbs your sleeping pattern.
On the contrary, expert Nutritionist and Macrobiotic Health Coach, Shilpa Arora says, "Banana and milk is a great option for body builders and people who wish to gain weight and need energy for high-intensity work. However, it is not recommended for people with allergies like asthma as it creates mucus which leads to breathing disorders."
