Roland Garros is here! The next post is dedicated to all tennis fans around the world! Let's gossip about Nadal and Federer! But in a different way! As you know, nutrition is my thing... and as you may have noticed tennis players are really really fit! When you watch a really tough final that might last 3 to 4 hours, the players are really reaching to the point of exhaustion. And now here comes my point of view. As you might have noticed, all players have a habit of eating bananas, just a few bites, every time they have a chance!
Soooo, we'll talk about banana!! You will be astonished by its abilities!
1. Banana protects you from high blood pressure, stroke and atherosclerosis. And why is that? Because it has a good amount of potassium! And that's why it also protects your cardiovascular system!
2. Who could have guessed that banana can protect your bones too!! It contains a thing called fructooligosaccharide which helps your body absorb calcium. How cool is that?
3. The third ability comes with our cool tennis players! Banana is used as an energy supplying electrolyte! It contains a bunch of difficult named stuff, such as norepinephrine which help us fight depression, mood swings, sleeplessness and irritability because of the vitamine 6!
4. Helps our vision! In fact, Africa uses it to treat cataracts!
Banana works as a super hero actually! It also helps you with:
Digestion, heartburn, ulcers and prevents constipation!
And something equally important! Never forget, if you are lucky enough to be there, next to Nadal, don't be shy... run and grab his banana peels! You can use them as an amazing fertilizer to roses and not to voodoo him in order to fall in love with you!!
That was it guys! Have fun and be happy!
Special hugs to Australia!! Till next time!
