Banana vs sports drink

Interesting to know, cheaper and tastier idea to put in practice. Water part still needs to be taken care of as and when you run long distance / perspire more during an excercise.
Just experiment to find how it suits you and switch over slowly, if comfortable. Personally, i could not imagine of any negative impact of practicing.
In fact banana shake could be a good post excercise food. on....
London, June 1 (ANI): Bananas beat sports drinks as energy source for athletes, a new study has revealed.

The fruit, which is rich in potassium and nutrients, has always been a favourite for endurance runners and cyclists.
Now scientists have confirmed that as well as maintaining the same levels of energy as carbohydrate drinks, bananas also possess healthier sugars.
The study revealed that bananas contained antioxidants not found in sugary sports drinks apart from having a greater nutritional boost.
"It shows healthier energy sources can still support an athlete's high performance," the Daily Express quoted Dr David Nieman, of Appalachian State University in North Carolina, as saying. (ANI)_.___
