Something that requires a short burst of energy will require simple carbohydrates. An event that requires longer, sustained energy will require complex carbohydrates to keep the body energized. But no matter what kind of an event an athlete is preparing for, it is always important to avoid food that are high in fat content. Drinking blended greens is essential to optimal health for everyone - regardless of the predominant diet which the person is eating. Today, Greens occupy a tiny section of most supermarkets, but yet these are humble power houses which gives us life, healing powers and precious nourishment.
It has been proven in research that chlorophyll can oxygenate, rejuvenate body cells and even cure degenerative diseases. When we consume greens, our cells are nourished with oxygen which enables them to heal and perform at optimum. When cells are oxygenated properly, cell respiration becomes strong and steady - resulting in an alkaline environment. An alkaline PH is vital for maximum health while cancer cells grows and multiplies in an acidic body.
