I have been diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostaic tachycardia syndrome) and one of the things I struggle with the most is fatigue. I have tried many things to help with this, some have helped, some have not. I must say though that I definitely noticed an improvement in energy when I started drinking banana bag. The high salt content is very good for my POTS, but even as much as I love salt, the drink was a little to salty for me. So I mix it with another drink mix called vital reds which also gives energy and the taste is fabulous!! I was also very impressed with the company as I emailed with a question about discounts because I knew I wanted to drink this daily and even though I think it is worth the money it is still expensive for me. I received a reply quickly and was given a small discount to help which I was very appreciative for. This drink is definitely worth a try if you are looking for something to help with low energy/fatigue.
I wrote a review below, and I continue to find this incredibly effective. I write to add that I believe this solution is far more palatable with room temp water (or maybe just slightly cool). It's also best when consumed by straw. I am guessing that the straw allows it to bypass certain taste receptors on the tongue. Whatever the reason, definitely use a straw! (maybe the company should add this to their tips)
My daughter, who has POTs has been taking it every day since the summer and has noticed that it really helps her. She is less dizzy, and does not feel like she is going to faint all the time. Thank you!
I wish I had tried these sooner !! I suffer from POTS and Chronic Fatigue badly and since trying these I no longer need to be in bed by lunch time , I run errands and I get things done ! I only need one every three days because the effects last that long for me ! Wish I had tried sooner and highly recommend to anyone suffering with POTS or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome !!
My 14 year old daughter has dysautonomia. Some days she's completely exhausted. She will drink one banana bag a day until she's feeling better!! Sometimes we will have her drink them if we know something is coming up that will take her energy!! We love this stuff!!! Don't know what we would do to help her if we weren't told about this product!!
It’s a great pick me up for my daughter who has POTS. As an OR nurse I see banana bag IVs given to our patients so I’m very happy to be able to give the same to my daughter in her water bottle. Thanks!!
Last November my son was once again in the ER for IV hydration with a BP of 70/40 and a HR of 38. He looked awful and his decline came quickly after a migraine set in. He had no other symptoms at this time and those vitals were with his meds on board. As usual I went to the computer and started searching for more options as I did each day. A banner came across my search that said "drink your banana bag". Being in the medical field I knew what that was but I also knew it was an IV. After reading the information, I sent a message to Brian. We are now on auto refill and not looking back! I'm not saying we haven't sought treatment since, but my sons quality of life has greatly improved! He had been nearly bedridden when the diagnosis came after 8 years and we were struggling. The change that came over my son after using BB was incredible! More stamina, less irritability, less crash, no nausea, cramping, reduced brain fog and best of all the migraines have just about disappeared! He able to stand longer than an hour after getting out of bed tolerating the fluid shifts better and engaging with family and friends! My son was never, NEVER able to do more than one activity in a day! If he wanted to go to a party, no sports and never could he have a friend come over after one of those! He would be junk! I was watching him get up this summer and ride his bike to the pond to fish with his friends, then play hockey that night!! I'm so forever grateful for Brian and his family and the people that surround him that have made it possible to watch my son have a fighting chance against POTS. Sometimes it takes a village and I'm thankful that Brian and Banana Bag Drink are part of the village that keeps my son on his feet!
These have been so incredibly helpful to me. I have P.O.T.S. and struggle with staying hydrated. They keep me from crashing and needing the ER. Im so thankful to have this product but i really wish i could oder yhem as needed and not once a month. I cant efford it and honestly only use them once or twice a week. Getting them once every other month would b better or like I said as I need them. Im actually going to have to cancel if I cant.
With several ER trips and not many answers I was struggling with syncope, tremors, nausea, headaches, numbness and tingling. Fast forward to an urgent care trip where it was found that I have POTS along with hypovolemia. IV fluids brought me back to life, but getting therapuetic infusions on a regular basis both is difficult and expensive. I did some online digging and came accroas this site. Each morning I start my day with a Banana Bag oral solution and it has given me so much of my life back. I have not needed an ER visit in over 4 weeks and my abdominal pain and nausea has subsided substantially. I recently susbscribed to their monthly program, which sends my supply automatically so that I don't run out. As for the taste... I crave it now. Serve it cold and drink it back. Let's face it we've all drank something worse in our youth!
I just want to say oral banana bag has changed my life. I was always struggling playing with a balancing act maintaining electrolytes. I could not drink enough Gatorade as there was too much sugar. Therefore at night, I would awaken to painful muscle cramps in my legs bringing me to tears. Since drinking banana bag, I no longer have this. This product has saved me...thank you so much!!!!
I am a patient with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Neurocardiogenic Syncope, and Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. I also have worked as a CNA2 for 5.5 years, and am currently a Pharmacy Technician. I was given a couple samples for the Dysautonomia Awareness Month (October), and I found it to work better than I had expected it to!
I also saved the last sample for a really bad flare day; but I ended up having a friend stand me up and had to walk 10 miles home, at 330am, in 28* freezing fog. Needless to say, my bad flare day later that morning, was astronomical and I couldn't even get myself out of the house to get to Urgent Care. A friend had asked me if I had any Vitamin C or A, and I said I didn't on hand... But recalled that the Banana Bag did. So I drank the first half with a small meal, took a nap, and upon waking the second time, took the rest. I wasn't completely cured, but I was definitely feeling alive again!
I just ordered it for myself, and am thankful this is offered to the public and reasonably affordable; compared to what it could be.
BB has given me back quality of life I never thought I would have again.. I'm 61 and was diagnosed with ME/CFS a couple decades ago.. life has gradually been more and more restricted to the point where I was just existing and had carers coming every day to my home and was mostly housebound. Realised recently that I have POTS so started BB a few months ago and I hope I NEVER have to be without this product.. I'm able to socialise again which I thought would be impossible and enjoy my life, thanks so much Brian for this product!!!
As a former ER RN and a patient that now has POTS and Sjogrens, I have suffered with rapid gastric emptying due to both conditions. This has saved my life because I don’t get dehydrated as much as before and my ER visit for fluids has decreased!
I drink banana bag twice a week and I can tell a difference when I do drink it. I have a JPouch and I intend on using banana bag for whenever I get a stomach bug.I hope that it keeps me from having to go to the ER.
Banana Bag has been a real game changer for our daughter who has dysautonomia. Best thing we've found to increase her energy level and reduce brain fog.
I have POTS and have tremendously benefited from Banana Bags! I save it for the most important part of the day to have me at my best health wise. It helps with my dizziness, energy, lightheadedness, and headaches. I'm very thankful for them and recommend them to any POTS patients that I meet.
My husband had Gillian barre with lasting effects of severe nerve damage. Due to the nerve damage and the nerves constantly trying to fire, he gets severely dehydrared and ends up with severe muscle spasms daily. We have tried everything and no medication works. He drinks 15-20 poweraids a day, which helps some, but still has severe cramping at night. He tried the banana bag drink at the end of the day and within 15 mins the muscle spasms stopped and he was able to rest! It was the most amazing thing ever!
Have battled with Dysautonomia for a number of years now. Because of other health issues (heart failure, etc.) I have to balance sodium and water intake with potential for fluid overload. With the Banana Bag solution I know how much Sodium I’m taking in, which is a great help. Being a balance of electrolytes is important, also.
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! :)
