Power me up With Bananas
Posted: February 12, 2021
As you are aware, the martial arts and exercises places heavy demands upon your body. It can rob you of many nutrients as it makes you stronger. One of the best fruits to eat post-workout is a banana. It can help with your post-workout recovery as it is an excellent source of potassium and easy to digest. Bananas help with heart health and blood pressure as well.
Not getting enough potassium can contribute to high blood pressure and increase risk for stroke. Additionally, many medications to treat these conditions drain the body of potassium, so eating bananas can help with replenishment of this nutrient.
Bananas are also great energizers for a pre-workout power up. On your next visit to the dojang or dojo, rather than reach for an energy bar or power drink, bananas provide a low-cost and natural alternative. They provide a quick pick-me-up and replace the important vitamins and minerals you lose during your strenuous free-sparring or ground and pound workouts. In addition, the potassium-rich banana is essential for muscle health.
