Eat bananas to relax and lessen your nerves

Eat 1 or 2 bananas 30 minutes to 1 hour before a big event, such as a presentation, to relax you and lessen your nerves.

Bananas provide a multitude of health benefits and also contain glucose, sucrose and fructose; three naturally occurring sugars that provide energy.

In addition they are an excellent source of potassium which, not only regulates the water balance in our bodies but, also helps to:

  • Normalise our heartbeat
  • Relax our muscles

Situations such as presenting can be stressful. Our pulse quickens and we tense up because of the adrenaline rush. 


Eating 1 or 2 bananas an hour before presenting provides you with potassium, helping you to relax your muscles (and mind), alleviate your stress and focus on delivering a great presentation.
