Many people get stomach pains as a result of the active substance in many painkillers. If you have a delicate stomach and have to take painkillers on a regular basis, try eating a banana at the same time. Take the medication with a glass of water and eat a banana straight afterwards. Bananas are very digestible and protect the delicate mucus membrane of the stomach. The medication will be absorbed more slowly by the body so the effect will be somewhat delayed, but stomach problems will be avoided.
In addition this tropical fruit is rich in magnesium.
