Forget the Sugary Sports Drinks - Drink a Banana

eTradeWire News/10562290
Banana Wave is the world's first non-dairy banana milk. The only non-dairy, "shelf-stable" banana milk in the world.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - eTradeWire -- For athletes and weekend warriors needing an energy boost and a way to replace electrolytes sweated out in the gym or outdoors on the playing field, the go-to solution has been to chug down a sugary sports drink.

A team of clinical researchers at Appalachian State University found that bananas were as effective as the leading sports drink in providing nutritional support to endurance cyclists during intensive and prolonged exercise says, Steven Gelerman, CEO of Banana Wave, makers of Banana Wave Banana Milk

Gelerman, whose Boca Raton-based company formulated and now markets the first non-dairy milk made from bananas as an alternative to dairy, nut, and rice milk, says he is a life-long banana enthusiast.

I learn something new about bananas virtually every day, Gelerman says. For instance, bananas are a great source of prebiotics and help keep our intestinal flora healthy. They're also a great snack for dieters; Under-ripe bananas are loaded with resistant starch -- which the human body digests very slowly, making it a powerful natural appetite suppressant that keeps us feeling full hours after eating it.  For those struggling to lose weight, Gelerman suggests eating a slightly green banana 30-minutes before meals; you'll find yourself eating far less at the dinner table.

Bananas are perhaps best-known as being a great source of potassium; about 422 milligrams in each 7-inch medium-sized fruit according to the USDA, says Gelerman. Potassium plays a significant role in metabolism, water and chemical balance in the body, and also helps with muscle contractions, nerve impulses, and regulation of the heartbeat.

Gelerman says instead of bringing raw bananas to the gym to snack on during workout sessions, he recently began bringing 8-ounce containers of Banana Wave Banana Milk. Made from non-GMO bananas, its a drink I can periodically sip, not only to maintain a high level of energy but to keep me hydrated throughout the workout.

With Banana Milk, I can get all the nutritional benefits of bananas, but without having to worry about slipping on one of the peels.

A veteran of the natural foods industry for more than 20 years, Steve Gelerman (AKA Mr. Banana) is the founder of Ians Natural Foods, makers of a wide variety of allergy-friendly meal solutions for kids.  He is also the CEO of Banana Wave, makers of the first non-dairy milk made from whole bananas.
