    Banana info
    HAVE A BANANA

    If you want a quick fix for flagging energy levels there's no
    better snack than a banana.

    Containing three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose
    - combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and
    substantial boost of energy.

    Research has proved that just two bananas provide enough
    energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the
    banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading
    athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us
    keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial
    number of illnesses and conditions making it a must to add
    to your daily diet.

    Anemia:
    High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemo-
    globin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

    Blood Pressure:
    This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet
    low in salt, making it the perfect food for helping to beat
    blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration
    has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims
    for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure
    and stroke.

    Brain Power:
    200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped
    through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast,
    break and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research
    has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning
    by making pupils more alert.

    Constipation:
    High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore
    normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without
    resorting to laxatives.

    Depression:
    According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst
    people suffering from depression, many felt much better after
    eating a banana. This is because bananas contain trypotophan,
    a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin known
    to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make
    you feel happier.

    Hangovers:
    One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a
    banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms
    the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted
    blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates
    your system.

    Heart-burn:
    Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body so if you
    suffer from heart-burn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

    Mosquito bites:
    Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the
    affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people
    find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and
    irritation.

    Nerves:
    Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous
    system.

    Ulcers:
    The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal
    disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is
    the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-
    chroniculcer cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and
    reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
    Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the
    natural mood enhancer, trypotophan.

    Smoking:
    Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking, as
    the high levels of Vitamin C, A1, B6, and B12 they contain,
    as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help
    the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

    Stress:
    Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the
    heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your
    body's water-balance. When we are stressed, our *********
    rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can
    be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

    Strokes:
    According to research in 'The New England Journal of Medicine'
    eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of
    death by strokes by as much as 40%!

    Warts:
    Those keen on natural alternatives swear that, if you want
    to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on
    the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in
    place with a plaster or surgical tape!

    So you see a banana really is a natural remedy for many
    ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the
    protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus,
    five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins
    and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the
    best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that
    well-known phrase so that we say, "A Banana a day keeps the
    doctor away!"

    Banana's are great. My dad used to say, look at the Gorillas, they're HUGE and strong and they eat lots of bananas. I hope the argricultural geneticists fix the banana prob.

    Other than sugars and fiber, do bananas have any other carbs in them?

    I think Banana it's great after the Iron Game, but not before, banana's got a fast absorption, so If you want to eat banana before working out, eat it 2 or 1 hour before the training, never eat it a few minutes before because it's high sugar absorption can make you feel dizzy

    I usually have a banana or two, and a protein bar, in my car as I'm leaving the gym. Doesn't the potassium help with DOMS?
