Go Bananas!

bananas21.jpgYep you got it, next time you need a burst of energy reach for one of these little beauties rather than a ‘Convenient’ unhealthy snack. Bananas are an excellent source of  many vitamins and minerals as well as providing a great boost of energy when needed most. So in a single banana you get for your investment; Fibre which helps maintain a healthy bowel and digestive system, B vitamins essential for your body to create energy, Magnesium for muscle and nerve function and potassium for water balance. In fact a glass of water and a banana (not mixed together though) is a great cheap and healthy alternative to many sports drinks. OK so that’s a load of great reasons to go bananas, but there is more! Bananas also contain a protein called Tryptophan which your body converts to Seratonin which helps you relax and generally feel good.
