“I normally don't love green juices, but Body & Eden makes theirs tasty by blending ingredients like avocado and banana with the usual suspects like kale and spinach. Delicious as they are, they're low calorie, and the drink names are catchy: I Have Balance, I Have Energy, and my favorite, I Have Calm.” – by Gayle King
Benefits of Bananas
There are several benefits associated with eating bananas, and they can be enjoyed in many different ways. The fruit can be eaten by itself, or added to a nutritious breakfast shake. The leaves of the banana tree can also be used to wrap food for cooking, and even the flowers are used in some popular South Indian dishes. With all of the ways men and women can enjoy this health and delicious fruit, it is not surprising that bananas are often used to help improve energy levels. Here are some of the other ways the yellow fruit can benefit your life.
“If you get hungry mid-day, a banana is the best snack at your desk, after a workout, or in between classes. Fruit is a very good snack in general.” – by Marcus Samuelsson
1. Banana: An Instant Source of Energy!
With only 105 calories a piece, this healthy and low calorie super food can replenish a man's glucose levels after his workout. It is not just men that can enjoy the energy boost that bananas can give, but women can also benefit from eating a banana. During your workout, glucose levels can drop and the fruit can improve your energy level if eaten directly after you've finished with your workout.
2. Fight those Muscle Cramps
Muscles cramps are painful, and usually occur when you are exercising or at night while you are sleeping. Not only are these sudden cramps extremely uncomfortable, they can also occur during sexual intercourse, which can ruin the intimate mood. Eating bananas regularly will replenish the low magnesium and potassium levels in your body, which are often responsible for the painful muscle cramping.
3. Keep your Blood Pressure Under Check
Bananas are low in sodium which can cause a spike in your blood pressure. They also contain potassium, which can be effective at controlling blood pressure levels and help to lower your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
4. Get the Probiotic Effect Naturally
Bananas contain fructooligosaccharides(FOS) that help to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. This can help to regulate bowel movements, prevent abdominal cramping, and the fruit is also beneficial to the health of your bones. They can reduce the PH level in the stomach, which makes it easier for calcium to be absorbed into the body. The fruit is also believed to be able to help eliminate kidney stones and remove harmful toxins.
5. Improve your Sex Life
Not only is the shape of a banana slightly sexual, it also contains vitamins and nutrients that can stimulate the production of testosterone and improve a man's sexual drive. It also stimulates the production of serotonin, which is the chemical responsible for the relaxed feelings of euphoria that are usually felt after an orgasm.
Two Reasons for Bananas as a Sex Food
Not only are bananas a healthy way to promote weight loss and replenish low energy levels after a workout, they can also help to improve your sex life.
“On a traffic light green means go and yellow means yield, but on a banana it's just the opposite. Green means hold on, yellow means go ahead, and red means where the hell did you get that banana at…” – by Mitch Hedberg
Having sex is a same workout by itself, and including this fruit in your regular diet can help to improve a man's performance and stamina in the bedroom. They can also help to prevent painful muscle cramps from developing during intercourse, and improve heart health which is necessary for you to be able to perform at your best during an intimate encounter.
The enzyme bromelain can be found in bananas, and it can give men and women's libidos a slight boost. Bromelain can help to increase the natural production of the male sex hormone, testosterone which controls sexual response and desire. With higher levels of testosterone, men often experience an increase in their libidos.
“Bananas are great, as I believe them to be the only known cure for existential dread. Also, Mother Teresa said that in India, a woman dying in the street will share her banana with anyone who needs it, whereas in America, people amass and hoard as many bananas as they can to sell for an exorbitant profit. So half of them go bad, anyway.” – by Anne Lamott
Not only do bananas look slight sexual, they can also improve your sex life. The super fruit can improve energy levels, increase libidos, and help to prevent muscle cramps from occurring. It is not only our sex lives that bananas can improve, but overall health as well. The healthy you are, the more energy you will have and that equates to a happy and energetic sex life. So, its not more an APPLE but eat BANANA everyday to keep low energy away and enjoy a healthy, sexy life.
