Gatorade has been around for decades and has millions of dollars of science behind it.
Bananas have been around for eons and have millions of monkeys talking about how awesome they are. (In sign language in zoos, we assume.)
A study looked at Gatorade vs bananas when consumed during an intense cycling workout.
One of the researchers said:
"We found that not only was performance the same whether bananas or sports drinks were consumed, there were several advantages to consuming bananas."
They have antioxidants and nutrients that Gatorade doesn't, and a healthier blend of sugars.
We wonder if athletes are going to start starring in banana ads now.
We're thinking of a commercial where David Beckham swallows a whole banana in one bite, right in front of us, in our bedroom and there are no cameras or crew or anything.
