Consumers don’t need to buy sugary sports drinks in order to replenish carbohydrates and electrolytes during or after exercise, says a new study. Instead, just grab a banana. The super-fruit not only offers the same performance boost as sports drinks, but additional advantages as well. Bananas provide antioxidants not found in the man-made beverages, plus a greater nutritional boost, including fiber, potassium and vitamin B6. Bananas also contain a healthier blend of natural sugars than sports drinks at a much lower price tag!
