Are Green Smoothies Good for Athletes?

Dear Friends,

For several months we have been reporting to you about the pilot study Sergei has been conducting. Now he is done and his documentary is available for digital rent, for instant download or for sale as a hard copy. The hard copy DVD contains closed captions in two languages: English and Russian.

Enjoy the first 15 minutes of “Powered by Green Smoothies” at no charge:

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.

If you’d like to see the film in its entirety you have several options. The hard copy of DVD can be purchased on our website ( for $19.95.

You can watch the film for $7.95 or download it directly onto your computer for $14.95 at:

Raw Family Holiday Bundle

No Comments 09 December 2013

Dear Friends,

During the past two weeks I have been driving around with my car loaded full of my children’s books, which I give as presents to many people, friends and strangers, at the store, at the post office, and on the street. I believe that today’s children need health education more than ever.

In this cold month of December, I would like to introduce as many people as possible to green smoothies and health. For this reason I have put together this generous package of books and DVDs. All items are material products (not digital). I offer this bundle of 10 items for $25, at the price below my own cost. I hope you pass along these books and DVDs, give them away, and place them under decorated trees. Perhaps as a result our combined efforts, we will soon see more people drinking smoothies and restoring their health.

Helping Our Children to Eat Healthy

No Comments 26 November 2013

Last week I have received an exciting email from my friend, Tatiana, whose two children have been drinking smoothies since they were in their mother’s womb. Her son and daughter are now 6 and 8. The reason for my excitement came from their regular doctor’s checkup. The doctors were amazed at the health of these two children, particularly at their healthy teeth and bones. Coincidentally, I have just finished reading several research articles that confirm that consuming greens since infancy (first in the form of breast milk) ensures healthy bones. I am including this info in my new book I am finishing to write now. I am glad that my two grandchildren have been consuming green smoothies since birth also.

Helping Our Children to Eat Healthy With Childrens Book

In the time when holidays are approaching and there will be a lot of partying and celebrating at the table, I encourage you to do whatever possible to inspire your children to eat healthy. Take them to the farmers’ markets and to health food stores, make juice together from carrots, or pomegranates, or anything else. Include your children in the process of blending smoothies.

We invite you to purchase our children’s books, read them to your children and discuss afterwards. After all, it is today’s children who will take the place of Obama, Cameron, and Putin in 20-30 years. What they will feed the nations depends on our kids’ education today.

To support you in your gift-giving decisions, we offer 50% discount off all our children’s books, including those, which are already discounted.

Why Do We Need to Eat Persimmons?

No Comments 18 November 2013

Persimmon Fruit

Persimmons’ Latin name is diaspyros, which means “The Food of the Gods.” The nutritional value of persimmons in many ways is higher than that of apples. According to USDA 1:

  • Two persimmons cover your daily needs in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Manganese;
  • Four fruits provide your daily needs for fiber;
  • Six fruits cover your daily requirements for Magnesium, Potassium, and Copper
  • Persimmons are rich in many valuable B-complex vitamins and a variety of valuable phyto-nutrients.

Yet, most people never buy persimmons. I invite you to try this amazingly delicious and nutritious fruit today. The season is now! Here are two of my favorite persimmon recipes for you to try.

Persimmon FruitPersimmon Golden Smoothie

5-6 ripe persimmons, sliced (with seeds removed)
2 cups of water or orange juice
Blend well in a blender. Serve in a nice glass. Decorate with a sprig of mint.

Yields: 4 cups

Persimmon Green Smoothie

5-6 ripe persimmons, sliced (with seeds removed)
4-5 leaves of Romaine lettuce
2 cups of water or apple juice

Blend well in a blender. Serve in a nice glass. Decorate with a sprig of mint.

Yields: 4 cups

Green Smoothie for Puppies

No Comments 04 November 2013

Dear Friends,

Dogs love green smoothies. Often, people ask us at what age they can start giving green smoothies to their dogs. Valya has just videotaped her two 10-week-old puppies consuming their very first green smoothie. Please keep in mind the following guidelines when introducing green smoothies to you dogs: Dogs can safely have the following fruits: Apples, bananas, oranges, and watermelon. They can also eat any greens. You may have even seen your doggies eating grass at the park. Serve your dog smoothie in small amounts, as dogs have smaller stomachs, and for that reason several tablespoons will be enough for a small dog, and a cup for a large dog. Enjoy this adorable 1½-minute video.
