A lot has already been written about the vitamins in bananas and their properties. But from time to time it is worth recalling why exactly we love them. So.
Bananas contain natural sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose) that are easily digestible. This is especially valuable for people who lead an active lifestyle and go in for sports. Bananas give energy before a workout, feed with new glycogen during (not an hour-long indoor fitness, but, for example, competitions), but more importantly, they restore the body after physical work is completed.
Banana is a very cool fast food. It is always ready for use, available, each packaged in individual biological packaging, quickly digested.
Ripe bananas contain the amino acid tryptophan, which is converted to serotonin. This is an important neurotransmitter that is responsible for many processes in the body, is involved in the regulation of vascular tone, facilitates physical activity and, in general, helps to relax the body, slightly improving mood.
Bananas are rich in vitamin B6, potassium and magnesium, which means that your heart and other muscles will get the support they need. This combination of trace elements in the product helps prevent cramps.
Banana is one of the best natural sweeteners in shakes (instead of sugar!), smoothies, cereals, puddings, pancakes, and other desserts.
