Bananas are often referred to as the perfect food for athletes largely due to their mineral content and easily digested carbs. Eating bananas may help reduce exercise-related muscle cramps and soreness, which affect many athletes. In addition, they contain several essential nutrients and provide benefits for digestion, heart, health and weight loss. Aside from being good for athletes, Bananas are also a highly convenient snack food.  Bananas are also a great dietary source of potassium which is essential for blood pressure control and healthy kidney function. Among other things, they may boost digestive and heart health due to their fiber and antioxidant content.
