In order to remain healthy, our body needs to maintain a balance of chemicals known as electrolytes. These electrolytes conduct electrical currents and allow our bodies to function properly.
We get electrolytes from foods and beverages, and anyone who is physically active needs to make sure they are eating the proper foods in order to maintain their electrolyte balance.
What about bananas? Do bananas contain electrolytes?
Yes, they do!
Bananas contain a fair amount of electrolytes, and also lots of potassium, which helps keep out electrolyte balance to what it should be.
