Banana nutrition is especially important if you are highly active and you want to support your muscles and immune system.
Bananas are high in the electrolytes magnesium and potassium, which support proper electrical activity in the heart and muscles and protects against cramping.
Bananas are also a good source of vitamin C which helps to support the immune system. Bananas are high in fiber which helps to protect the digestive system and fiber also helps to regulate the digestion of nutrients so you stay fuller longer.
Since I am highly active and need to support my energy level and muscles, I combine bananas and dates in the form of my “Banana Date Energy Drink” to get the most out of banana nutrition and dates nutrition. Both together form a natural whole food energy drink high in electrolytes.
