The Musa Paradisiaca (Musaceae), commonly known as a banana, is widely distributed in various regions of the planet and its fruits have traditionally been used as food. The pseudo stem (pseudostem) of the plant has a rich and varied composition of trace elements, polyphenolic compounds, dietary fiber (50%, this is their greatest contribution to the nutritional value), what gives it a marked antioxidant activity. Recently, important studies have reported that dietary polyphenols have an important biological effect, among which there are the anti-cancer agents, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. There is evidence to support the hypothesis that the polyphenols in the diet may have a protective effect and therapeutic potential against oxidative damage linked to the pathogenesis.
