What's the real deal about eating bananas to help with shin splint pain? Just about all of my friends told me I should try eating bananas to help with the shin splints I have been having because they contain potassium and that will help.
I'm not debating the benefits of eating fruit, but would like to know more about the science of eating bananas (and higher levels of potassium) to help aid shin splint/muscle pain. I've never been a big fan of bananas, but if eating them on a regular basis will help improve my condition I'd like to know about it so that I can adjust my diet. Thoughts or comments?
