In one study involving female participants, eating two bananas each day for two months led to significant increases in Bifidobacteria. Along with these increased levels of Bifidobacteria, participants also experienced fewer gastrointestinal problems and more regular bowel function when compared to other women in the study who drank a banana-flavored beverage that did not contain any actual banana.

And if you thought bananas were had a higher glycemic index value, maybe not:  bananas contains both fiber (pectin); and high FOS which are not broken down until the small intestine where they are metabolized by bacteria, providing a balancing measure for friendly bacteria.
