What happens to your body when you eat bananas every day?

Bananas Bestow Upon Us Remarkable Resilience

For many years, athletes and their mentors have held the belief that the consumption of carbohydrates during prolonged physical exertion contributes to extended training sessions at heightened intensities and facilitates quicker recovery. Carbohydrates play a vital role in nourishing the muscles, thereby reducing physiological stress and minimizing the occurrence of inflammation. Among the various forms of carbohydrates, sugar, be it glucose, fructose, or sucrose, as provided by sports beverages, is considered the most readily digestible and well-tolerated option.

However, in 2012, a group of researchers based at Appalachian State University in Kannapolis embarked on a study examining the potential of fruit as a healthier substitute for sports drinks during exercise. Their findings revealed that professional cyclists experienced improved well-being both during strenuous rides and immediately afterward when they consumed half of a standard banana every 30 minutes. It should be noted, though, that this practice was associated with occasional bloating.
