Our Story

The origin of the Banana Bag Oral Solution grew out of my two passions, surfing and pharmaceutical science.
My friends and work colleagues know I spend the majority of my time away from work chasing waves in tropical remote places around the world. I've endured all the hardships we surfers willingly put our bodies through in order to catch that perfect wave.
Let me itemize the damage.


 

28 HR

long, dehydrating flights from Florida to Indonesia

10 HR

boat ride out to the Mentawai islands

6 HR

surfing, using my entire body core

 

...to navigate the most amazing waves on the planet; along with all the intense elements of heat and humidity, and really no time to properly hydrate or find the resources for proper nutrition. No question, this is the perfect storm for severe dehydration and poor dietary intake leading up to muscle cramps, headaches, fatigue, diarrhea...etc.

The truth is, at work, I happen to have made countless intravenous Banana Bags in hospitals, and they are the default starting point for dehydrated, nutrient deficient patients. But for those of us still standing and not admitted to the ER, I personally think we would like to avoid an IV in the arm, at all costs. So, after years of listening to my colleagues quiz me for a more convenient solution to it all, I began to blend my own mix using the same ingredients I've used at work so many times before, but now it was to be taken orally.
