Let customers speak for usfrom 61 reviews
I am a POTS patient and I also have UCTD, Meniers, Celiac, Endometriosis, PCOS, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Adenomyosis, Fibromyalgia & hydronephrosis unfortunately. I currently do infusions for my pots anywhere from every 2 weeks to a month depending on my symptoms. I really wanted to try something different than getting the infusions so I got 2 samples of the banana bag. I saved them for days I was having really bad dizziness and my heart rate was high. I immediately felt better it blew my mind that foggy dizzy feeling was gone. Also my heart rate immediately slowed down. The taste isn’t that bad from a lot of the reviews I saw! It tastes like a liquid vitamin but I chugged it down fast in 16 ounces of water and was totally fine. The banana bag for me personally can last a few days to a week or two depending on what my body is needing. I honestly can say I was hesitant at first but am a true believer in this product. Also if you have a cold � or the flu � this helps you feel better to fight through the virus. I would say to anyone it’s worth a shot to try it! It cannot hurt you so it’s definitely worth a shot it has helped me! I’m so sensitive to medication that I do more natural things and this is a great option. It honestly helps with the chronic fatigue too and the horrible brain fog I get from all my issues. Thank you banana bag for your caring and thoughtfulness of people with medical conditions and for people that just need that boost without all the unhealthyness out there this is a nice option for something simple and fast that is good for you too.
My daughter was recently diagnosed with POTS after suffering with symptoms for nearly 2 years. I somehow found the Banana Bag Oral Solution while searching for ways to help her. I received the samples, still skeptical, and it wasn't long until she had an attack. I gave her one, and within 10 minutes she went from an empty shell with BP of 82/55 to sitting up, BP 93/60. 30 minutes later, BP was 100/70 and she was only slightly shaky and hungry! It turned a normally 24-36 hour recovery (or a trip to the ER for an IV) into a 2 hour FULL RECOVERY! It happened again on Friday at a football game. People that were working with us were shocked to see her coming back to life so quickly! Her migraines have also decreased! It's so incredible! Customers for LIFE!
I recently ran across your ad and ordered! My colon was removed in 2008 and hydration and absorption is my daily challenge. I often go for IV hydration when I can't catch up. THIS PRODUCT has change my life! I just ordered more and drink daily!
I purchased the banana bag oral solution to help with my POTS. I have heard great things about it from other people with POTS, and from the Dysautomomia International group. I was getting weekly saline infusions and wanted to see if this would help so I wouldn't need them as much, or at all. I got the sample first because I'm extremely picky and heard the flavor can be a little difficult for many to drink. I didn't know if I'd be able to handle the flavor but thought I'd give it a try in Gatorade instead of plain water, as others have recommended, and it was definitely doable! It helps mask the taste and makes it easy to drink. I even tried it in OJ and that works too. I'm very excited to take these on a regular basis, 3 times a week to start. I feel more energy and decreased fatigue after drinking it, and it lasts! Usually, I know when I'm due for my medication I have to take every 4 hours for my blood pressure because I start feeling increased fatigue and tachycardia along with blacking out (pre-syncope) a lot more upon standing. I noticed the symptoms dramatically decreased and that I wasn't blacking out or having tachycardia even though it was well past the 4 hours of needing to take my medication. Thank you so much for coming up with this amazing product!
I just wanted to say thank you guys for making this product. Not only do I suffer with Dysautonomia POTS with IST. But this week I have had a Intestinal and stomach flu on top of it. We all know the delicate balance that a person with POTS has to have with having enough water and salt in their system. I knew I was becoming dehydrated. I was dizzy, rapid heartbeat, LBP, with fever and vomiting etc. And YOUR product although the taste needs improving. I drank it out of desperation. I was and still am keeping nothing down food wise. But this little packet saved my life. Literally. I went to the Doctor today and he said there should be no way I could be in his office. I should have been admitted and given IV hydration. He asked how I managed to be as good as I am. Which remind you I am awfully sick. I told him every 2 days I was drinking Banana Bag oral drink. He had never heard of it. But after looking over the ingredients he said. It would have been the same thing he would have given me in the hospital. And it probably saved me from having a heart attack or fainting and really injuring myself. He let me go with a hug and said don't stop using this stuff. And he kept my open packet to show his other patients with POTS or even patients with severe flu symptoms that there is a product out there that is better than Pedialyte or Gatorade. So thank you!!! You saved me a hospital trip. And even turned one of the most finicky Drs into a believer of your product! It means so much.
These save me not only money from going to the ER (I have dysautonomia (POTS) & live in Texas!) bc it's common for ppl like me to get dehydrated & need an IV. But also to help save me by rehydrating me & especially so when I pass out. Yesterday for example, I passed out but luckily always keep emergancy banana bags in my wallet! Within several minutes of drinking one packet I was able to slowly get up.
*PLEASE DO NOT TAKE MY SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCE AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR DR. AND GO TO THE ER WHEN NECESSARRY!!! This is a circumstance I had discussed with my doctor & got "permission" to use these versus the ER. Please always check with your doctor first!*
THANK YOU so so much for creating this to help people like me who get dehydrated & pass out frequently due to POTS. I will continue to use & purchase your products bc they work, you use them to help people, and partner with DINET and so much more.
If you're skeptical about these Banana Bags I am proof THEY WORK! I do not go anywhere without them.
I have Dysautonomia/POTS, and I've suffered a great deal over the years. Countless doctors, specialists, tests, needles, medications, fluids, diet changes, lifestyle alterations, and so much more. When they say there is no cure....they mean it. And all this time I truly believed that statement. Until I tried Banana Bag! The first time I tasted the product, I spit it out! The taste wasn't bad at all but I didn't like the texture it turned my water. I've noticed that I can mix the solution with Powerade and get the same results! With such an illness, simple daily tasks are nearly impossible. However, thankful to some of my medication, I am able to work full time as well as be a full time university student. Most days are manageable. Wednesday was not one of those days, though, and Banana Bag, being such an unbelievable miracle, had entirely slipped my mind. I suffered all day. I came come and cried uncontrollably because of the pain and amount of symptoms I was experiencing. Luckily, I noticed my Banana Bag packets in the cabinet, and by the time I finished half of my drink, I felt like a brand new person. I now recommend this product to anyone I meet, whether they're just athletic, ill, or need a good hangover reliever!
Thank you, folks, for sending the sample. There is no arguing with efficacy of this stuff. I have dysautonomia and a primary immune disorder that wasn't diagnosed until I was 58. That comes with a bunch of miserable autoimmune conditions. Without the cushion of youth, I can barely get out of bed and function now a days. I HATE it. Going outside in the Alabama heat, even with a BlackIce pack on my neck makes me too weak to walk. Your Banana Bag drink is the only thing I've found that allows me to bounce back instead of spending hours in the bed to recover from a simple stroll. I'm keeping an eye on the site so I can subscribe as soon as product is available. Many thanks for your commitment to health!
I got my sample in the mail last week and I am so thrilled for the stock to come back so I can join the monthly subscription. I have not felt that good in years. It was hands down one of the best days I can remember. The energy I had, the normal pulse the ability to just feel normal, the brain fog lifted. I can def tell now it's been a few days of not having the solution but to know I'll have it soon Keeps me going. Thank you so much for creating this and changing my life! This will change the way dysautonomia patients live life!!
I heard about Banana Bags (BB's) from the Dysautonomia International Facebook page. I was skeptical because I feel so awful most if the time. I have Heart Failure and Dysautonomia, imagine the symptoms. I get IV therapy quite often. I would get about 3-5 decent days after an IV treatment. I have lost an insane amount if weight, not good. I started supplementing with BB's and noticed a vast difference! Not only do I look and feel somewhat decent, BB's have allowed me more good days! Instead of 3-5 decent days after IV therapy, I get btwn 9-13 decent days now!!! I am ecstatic! I can now get some things accomplished in home and out. I am so grateful. My gi system is extremely sensitive and I have had 0 problems with BB's. Thank you guys so much!!!!!
A miracle in a bag. I have suffered from debilitating POTS for 26 year and I'm 26. I have never felt this normal before. I feel like I have more energy then the average person now which is amazing. I was given the free samples and just useing 2 has helped greatly. Thank you so much, I will be a lifetime buyer.
This is the solution I have been waiting for!! I have had two bags so far, trying to save them till more product is available. I was able to go back to work for the first time today in months! My husband was amazed at how well Banana Bag has worked for my symptoms. I can't wait to order more so I can get my life back!! I can't wait to let my doctors know how well this works. Thank you for this wonderful life saver you have created Brian! :)
My 15 year old daughter has pots and I can't put into words how much this has helped her. I had never heard of this one day it popped up when I was on Facebook so I'm always looking for something to help her so I read about it and thought well I have tried everything else why not waste some more money and try it nothing we had tried had helped her. I ordered the five pack because I really didn't think it would help. I was so wrong this stuff is amazing she can now do things she never thought she would be able to do without passing out she couldn't even get up off the Sofia without getting dizzy or felling like she was going to pass out now as long as she drinks this everyday she is almost like a normal 15 year old. I know it's from the banana bag because after she drink the first five bags I reordered the 30 bags and we had to wait on them to get here all of her symptoms came back when we were out of it and as soon as she started drinking it again they went away so it really does work for her this stuff is just wonderful now I don't know if everybody will see this big of difference or not but for her it has been wonderful to me every doctor that treats pots patients should know about this and tell their patients about it. I know this is for other things not just pots but for people with pots it's just wonderful to find something to help them feel better and be able to live a more normal life I just ordered again and did it so it will be sent out once a month so we want be without it again I wish it didn't cost quite as much and that there was a little spout on the package so it would pour in a bottle a little better but this is a wonderful product and I forgot to say that she loves the taste which kind of surprised me I didn't mean to write such a long review but when you know how well this works you just want everybody to know about it too EVerybody with pots should try banana bag.
You have dramatically improved the quality of life of our whole family. There is no prescription, salt or vitamin supplement that has helped my wife (diagnosed with POTS and who suffers from other dysautonomic symptoms) more than this product. Keep up the good work!
Please bring these back as soon as possible. My wife has POTS and we bought 5 to try. They're the only thing that has worked for her (and yes, we are in constant contact with her doctors). She's back to passing out daily now and taking some scary falls.... We were so hopeful, and now I'm checking the site daily hoping they'll be back soon.
This has been amazing. My daughter is taking one a day and so far she feels almost normal. I love this and even told her cardiologist about it. Will continue using it. thanks
I'm a fellow Spoonie with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Dysautonomia. I'm also an RN who used to work in ICU. I would hang Banana Bag IV's for my patients. Keeping myself hydrated has always been a challenge, and I always thought IV Banana Bags would be a good option. Even though I was a nurse IV banana bags weren't available to me. Instead, pickle juice, along with other hydration drinks, used to be my go to beverages. They didn't work well and I'd up in ER to get IV fluids. During a horrid relapse, I had port for IV hydration but it became infected. I had sepsis so the port was pulled. I was beyond thrilled to discover that Banana Bag Oral Drink is available. It's the first thing I grab when I know I need hydration. It works quick. I can feel my cells suck up the nutrients and sigh in relief. It gives a boost of energy without sugar or caffeine. It's what the body wants and craves every single day. Thank you for making this wonderful product available. It keeps me out of the emergency room. It's the best hydration drink there is!
I have used this product four times now, and every time I'm amazed at the result. Although chronically ill, I almost feel "normal" after taking a glass of this solution. Twice it was for travel to my son, who lives 10 hours away. Riding in a car is like death for me, but it made it more bearable! I wanted to be at my best, since I hadn't seen my grandson in 6 months. The first time I tried it, I was at the "Dinner and Dancing for Dysautonomia Awareness". BBOS allowed me to stand up more than I usually can at a social function. The last time was when I was about to sing at my church's Christmas Program, after having an awful case of the flu. I'll admit, I had to have an IV bag during this flu, I was so sick, but then I drank BBOS again, so that I could sing with the choir, and it worked amazingly well for me!! It brought me back from the dead. My blood pressure was 60/37 with a 55 heart rate, so I'm not kidding when I say that I didn't think I would be alive to tell this story!! Thanks Brian
This is an amazing product, I have noticed an improvement in my symptoms and have more energy. Very grateful to have found this product!
There is nothing better than this product! As a cardiac patient, I rely on a properly balanced supplement to allow me to stay functional and recover from exercise, especially in the heat. I wouldn't have been able to hike or rock climb at all this summer without Banana Bag! This was also one of the only things that helped me bounce back faster following an episode. I tried other products while it was out and found them incredibly inferior. I'm so grateful to have found this product and always recommend it to my patients, family, and friends. You won't regret your purchase!
Wow! I'm so thankful someone in my EDS/POTS group posted about this product! I've been waiting about three months for it to be back in stock to try it. POTS makes me severely fatigued and energy drinks make my heart race more and give me jitters and headaches. The sugar and sugar substitutes makes me feel bad as well. I've been using this for about 7 days now and I can tell a huge difference in my energy levels and my heart doesn't beat too hard or too fast as often. It is a bit expensive but comparable with the energy drinks it's about on par in cost comparison and this product doesn't cause bad side effects. Thanks for making such an incredible product for those of us who aren't understood by the medical community too well and there aren't many, if any, options for us. I sure hope you have a huge stock for my future orders.
I am so thankful that I found this product this last spring. I suffer from POTS and this product has saved me trips of going into the emergency room for a bag of saline wasting about 3 a visit talking to Drs who really don't understand the condition. Also thank you for the samples over the summer when you were out of product, great caring customer service.
This product has improved the quality of life for my spouse. This company truly cares about the customers they serve. The POTS community should really consider promoting this product. Banana in a bag can save you hundreds of dollars by staying out of the hospital (waiting on IV).
I Have POTS ( a chronic illness ) and it is super hard for me to stay hydrated . This product is AMAZING !!! I normally have to go to the ER twice a month to get an IV . This product has kept me away . Which if I could give these guys a hug I would ! You have given me a part of my life back ! Thank you from this Tachy heart of mine ! By the way folks the taste is not bad at all !!!! Best product out there by far . If you don't buy it's your loss !
Thanks again !
I also have POTS (postural orthostatic tachichardia syndrome) dehydration is a big problem with this illness. Banana bag is a true life saver! Thank you for inventing it:thumbsup:
