BE A HEALTHY BODYBUILDER - Feeding your body raw superfood nutrients can have a positive effect on building hard, high-quality muscle. On a daily basis, your body is exposed to toxins from the environment, stress and intense, hard workouts. This can result in an increase of lactic acid, ammonia and toxins, which impedes muscle building and the recovery process. Combine that with a strict diet and you are no doubt missing important antioxidants and essential nutrients that can keep your body functioning at an optimal rate or provide protection against exercise-induced free radicals.
SPINACH•FLEX™ delivers a blend of powerful antioxidants derived from raw sources of superfoods, including spinach, grapes, broccoli and other potent antioxidants, including vitamin C, co-enzyme Q10, alpha lipoic acid, ginkgo biloba and American ginseng.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND SPINACH•FLEX
Oxidative stress can severely hinder your ability to recover and perform at your maximum intensity. It can also lead to muscle cramping and increase the time it takes to make a full recovery. Although regular training can enhance the body’s ability to adapt to oxidative stress, this balance can be disrupted if you are training at an elevated level. Antioxidants can work to decrease the harmful effects of oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which are damaging molecules produced during metabolic processes such as those that take place during an intense workout. If you are following an intense bodybuilding workout, you are increasing the production of free radicals beyond the everyday oxidation your body experiences. The result can cause severe muscle damage and reduce recovery. Antioxidants can work to halt the damage caused by free radicals by binding to active receptor sites and scavenging and neutralizing free radicals’ damaging effects. Some of the most common and powerful antioxidants can be found in the foods we eat and are termed superfoods. SPINACH•FLEX provides a super-concentrated dose of the ultra-effective Spinacia oleracea, also known as spinach. In fact, each box delivers the equivalent of over 12 cups of spinach and greens.
Cells are made up of atoms and healthy atoms have paired electrons. Free radicals, atoms that are missing an electron, steal electrons from surrounding atoms and they alter or destroy cells. This causes a chain reaction that replicates cells in a damaged state which can lead to severe muscle damage and reduced recovery. Antioxidants give an electron to the free radical and neutralize it, stopping the chain of damaging free radicals from forming. This helps enhance recovery, protect muscles from further damage, and increases energy.

The formation of free radicals occurs as a result of an intense workout. SPINACH•FLEX protects the muscle from damage and helps to facilitate the recovery process. Research has shown that oxidative stress can lead to aggravation of muscle cramping, muscle deterioration and increases recovery time. SPINACH•FLEX works to halt the damage caused by free radicals by binding to active receptor sites, scavenging and neutralizing free radicals’ damaging effects. SPINACH•FLEX provides a few of the most potent antioxidants that can be found naturally in some of the foods we eat, including the ultra-effective Spinacia oleracea, also known as spinach.

Do I really need SPINACH•FLEX if I am following a clean diet?
- Yes. It can be very difficult for average people to get all the essential nutrients they need from the food they eat, let alone if they are athletes who have above-average needs.
