Have you ever considered taking pre-workout supplements? I tell you, nothing quite beats nature with regards to nutrients for performance. You will not only save money but possibly increase your level of performance whilst consuming: bananas and green tea. These not only each provide their own unique benefits but also complement each other to make you perform better.
Bananas are one of the best sources of energy for exercise related activity. Bananas contain about 105 calories per average banana and have a glucose index of 51, which is lower than 55. This is considered to release energy at a slow rate. This means that the energy in a banana is released slowly, giving you a more sustainable fuel source. This will ensure that you have sufficient amounts of energy throughout your workout (healthyeating, n.d.).
Not only do bananas contain effective amounts of energy, but bananas also contain powerful minerals, such as Potassium and Magnesium. Both minerals aid in nerve function and muscular contraction. These factors are able to greatly effect your workout, making you perform better than you could before through improved muscular movement (Alan Carter, PharmD, 2018).
Unlike bananas, green tea contains minimal to 0 calories, but contain powerful ingredients that can boost your performance. Kao Corporation completed a study in 2006, to find that green tea is able to increase the energy efficiency within cells. This combined with antioxidants and caffeine, that stimulate and cleanse the body of free radicals, will ensure you make the most of the energy you consume (Nutrex, n.d.).
These two supplements will supply your body with the necessary energy to fuel your workout with the aid of powerful minerals and nutrients that increases your body’s ability to use its energy. Next time before you hit a hard session, grab a banana and some green tea so that you are able to do better than you could before.
Most importantly, you should also fuel your spirit with the Word of God so that you will be equiped mentally and spiritually. This is most needed in life as the Spirit of God can lead you to places where you could never reach before (1 Corinthians 2:9).
However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” the things God has prepared for those who love him
