This film features: Sergei Boutenko.

Can green smoothies positively affect athletes?

In the summer of 2013, Sergei Boutenko put 10 endurance athletes (five ultra-runners and five CrossFitters) on green smoothies and followed them around with his camera to find out the answer to this question. Starting out as healthy athletes, or so they thought, 10 individuals embark on a six-week experiment of continuing their typical training and racing regimen, but with one major difference: they are drinking a quart of green smoothies every day. You'll be astonished at the results that begin to emerge. From a decrease in injuries to feeling supercharged to run for hours on end, there might be a bit more to smoothies than just tasting delicious.

If you like to exercise, you need to see this film!

I enjoy the inspiration contained in the videos so far ... totally agree with the healing power of vegetables. I was looking at the suggested green smoothie recipes. I am very concerned at the number of fruits contained in these recipes. I can understand needing that amount of carbohydrates as an athlete but I am concerned that it would be too much sugar for the average person. Can you clarify?

Hi, Susan! A green smoothie is a homemade drink made from fresh leafy greens, such as kale, collards, Swiss chard, and spinach, and fresh, ripe fruit. When you blend greens together with fruit, you create a concoction that is both delicious and nutritious. If you are otherwise healthy, we don’t believe that there’s any reason to overly restrict fructose from natural, fresh (and preferably organic) fruit sources. Most adults need two serves of fruit a day just to hit their baseline vitamin and fiber requirements. If you’re really concerned, you could stick to lower sugar fruits such as berries, passionfruit, strawberries and non-tropical varieties. Hope this helps. ~ Jasmin 💕
