When suffering from a severe respiratory infection like tuberculosis, it is very important that your immune system is in good shape. Bananas provide a high concentration of vitamins and nutrients, including calcium, potassium, dietary fiber and manganese, all of which help to optimize the body’s other systems, while also boosting the immune system. Banana juice or a mashed banana paste can also be consumed to ease the inflammation in the throat and respiratory tracts, providing pain relief.
