As an athlete, it's of the utmost importance to energize your body with the right nutrients. Any device that can make things easier to accomplish that I'll certainly take a look at. In January of 2009 I purchased a Vitamix 5200. For those of you not familiar with these it can be described as a blender on steroids. With numerous fitness foods and beverages on the market many are far from being healthy and can hinder your recovery or progress. With a machine like the Vitamix you can control precisely the content of the food for the response your seeking.
The science of the Vitamix is that it ruptures the cell walls of whole foods to make the enzymes more bioavailable, trust me it liquifies everything. Valuable nutrients locked inside the pulp, peels and seeds of fruits and veggies cannot be absorbed as easily when these foods are simply chewed. When fresh, whole foods are taken down to the cellular level by the Vitamix, the nutrients become readily available for your body. Check it out at Vitamix.com. Let it be known that I have no connection with the Vitamix people I'm just suggesting that this is a device that can make life just that much easier.
