During the Keto/Atkins/Low-Carb diet trends, banana’s got a bad rep.
“They’re too high in sugar” they’d say, completely forgetting about all of the amazing benefits this power fruit provides.
1️⃣ After a workout sesh, bananas allow your body to release the hormone insulin. And insulin moves sugar from your blood into your muscle cells, where it’s stored as energy. Hello bonus energy!
2️⃣ They are rich in feel-good compounds like dopamine (one of your happy hormones) and antioxidants, which help with inflammation. Bye Bye tiring inflammation.
3️⃣ They are also rich in potassium and magnesium, which help to restore your electrolytes after a sweaty workout session. Hello again renewed energy!
