A Note from Sergei:

In the summer of 2013 I rounded up 10 endurance athletes (five ultra-runners and five CrossFitters), put them on a green smoothie challenge for six weeks, and documented everything with my camera. So as to ensure that my experiment was scientific, I put my people through a series of blood tests, demanding endurance tests, and consulted with numerous medical professionals throughout the experiment. The results of this project were fascinating! Even though all of my athletes were healthy and fit to begin with, they managed to further improve their health and endurance simply by drinking whole-food based green smoothies.

Perhaps the most distinguished change we (my team and I) discovered in the before and after blood work of my athletes was a significant reduction in C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is a test that measures protein particles in the blood. These protein particles are directly linked to levels of inflammation. The higher the CRP the more inflammation is present in that body All but one of my athletes managed to reduce their C-reactive protein significantly by drinking green smoothies. Less inflammation translated to athletes feeling lighter on their feet, healing their pre-existing, workout-related injuries, and improving their post-exercise recovery times.

After a year of working on this project, I can confidently conclude that green smoothies support the health and performance of athletes in a way that it is scientifically measurable and physically noticeable. The testimonies of the athletes who took part in this experiment are so surprising and inspiring they will make everyone who watches this film strap on their running shoes and reach for their green smoothie.
