It turns out that our old cartoon muscle man, Popeye the sailor, was telling the truth after all when he fights Brutus, his arch enemy. So what is so special about Spinach?
Scientists have found that nitrates in spinach aid in muscle development and assist in strength gains. The problem with this vegetable is that you need to take in huge quantities in order to achieve the muscle mass gain. That is, about a kilogram of this spinach every single day!
Why do we want to eat raw vegetables most of the time? The reason is to keep the nutrients intact. But doing so, can cause consumption of too much cellulose and thus bloating.
Certain vegetables when cooked is more beneficial as it aids in nutrient absorption such as tomatoes. When cooked, the antioxidants in tomatoes is better absorbed by the body.
These vegetables should also be cooked to breakdown chemicals that prevent hormone production. Of course, steaming vegetables would be a good option to complement both sides of the straw.
