On March 12, fitness supplement retailer, Muscular Development Store, responds to an article published by FitSugar, which outlines the pros of eating bananas before working out.
According to FitSugar, bananas are high in carbohydrates and can contain a high volume of nutrients,which can be good during a workout. FitSugar reports that bananas have a lot of potassium, which regulates blood pressure and heart functions.
Potassium is a really important mineral that helps to ease and prevent cramping, reports FitSugar.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for the Muscular Development Store, says bananas are extremely healthy for athletes in training programs because of the potassium. “When athletes work out consistently, their muscles get tired and blood rushes in and out of tissue,” he says. “This can cause muscles to cramp or become spastic. Eating bananas, which are high in potassium, can prevent this.”
Additionally, Turner adds for those not fans of the tropical fruit, bananas can be an acquired taste and can serve as a waist-watching pre-workout snack. “ I've found that not a lot of people like the taste of bananas. But with their potassium levels and fiber, they are important to eat before a workout. As the article says, they are roughly only 100 calories and can keep you full for a while. If you don’t like the taste you can add them to a fruit or vegetable smoothie.”
FitSugar reports that bananas can be used as a butter substitute when baking. This can cut cholesterol, add fiber, and boost flavor. Because of their antacid effects, bananas can also soothe an upset stomach, which is perfect for an athlete suffering from heartburn.
