Bananas are a great snack option because they are easy to take away and you do not need utensils to eat. Let’s see now the benefits of banana in the life of the marombeiro.

The fruit is a high carbohydrate food that gives energy to the body and contains potassium, an important mineral for the proper functioning of muscles. Vitamin B6 is found in good amounts in bananas and is linked to energy consumption, thereby maintaining metabolism and preventing muscle loss.

For those who follow a diet

Because it is high in fiber, it is useful to include bananas in your diet to satisfy you longer. In addition, it is a low glycemic and non-caloric fruit. It contains vitamin B6, a substance indirectly related to appetite control, that stimulates the synthesis of serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for well-being and anxiety reduction.

Vitamin before and after training

When the banana begins to ripen, cut it into a container and freeze it. Remove from the freezer before working and beat in the blender with a glass of milk. The enzymatic effect will be dark, but the nutrients are preserved. The vitamin gives you more energy to train and the protein intake before training makes the amino acids available for muscle recovery. Some people may feel heavy with shaking before they start exercising. In this case, it is also interesting to drink after exercise, because carbohydrates and milk, respectively, help restore muscle glycogen and promote lean body gains.

There are different types of bananas, but I usually eat two:

Silver banana

It has less sweet pulp and a more consistent texture, so it is also suitable for frying because it does not disintegrate with heat. The durability is longer compared to other types and is a good option for snacks.
