Did you know there are 5 ways that bananas can solve health problems better than pills?!

June 01, 2015 2 min read

Bananas have very large amount of fiber and different kind of sugars than other fruits. Therefore, this amazing fruit can provide great amount of energy but it can also solve certain health problems better than some drugs do. Never hesitate when it comes to eating banana or not because bananas belong on the super-food list.
  1. High Blood Pressure
Not all of us known that lack of potassium and excessive salt intake can have very negative effects on blood pressure. It is recommended to eat one banana each morning in order to maintain blood pressure ideal. Bananas are very rich in potassium which is essential for our blood.
  1. Depression
Bananas can help you fight depression. This is due to tryptophan presence in the fruit. Tryptophan is found in a form of protein which stimulates serotonin’s secretion (hormone of happiness). In order to improve your mood within minutes, you only need to eat just one banana. You will feel calm and happy afterwards.
  1. Stress
Stress can make levels of potassium drop low because it can easily speed up the metabolism. Metabolism and potassium are narrowly linked. Like we said before, bananas can increase the potassium levels. Regular consumption of this fruit will not only increase potassium levels but it will also regulate the optimal water amount in the body and will normalize and improve heart’s work.
  1. Constipation
Bananas contain dietetic fiber and pectin. Both of these stimulate toxin-removal process from the body and speed up digestion. Besides that, bananas reduce flatulence, stimulate digestion, have probiotic properties and ease intestines tension due to constipation.
  1. PMS
Since it has been confirmed that vitamin B has relieving premenstrual symptoms properties, and bananas are very rich in vitamin B6, this makes bananas excellent fruit (which has a positive effect on the level of glucose in the blood) when it comes to dealing with PMS. They will also help you reduce abdomen and waist pain, retain water in the body and regulate mood swings.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
