There is not one supplement out there that outweighs the benefit of eating your greens. Green leafy vegetables, like arugula, are packed with vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) that aid in performance and recovery. This is a missing component to many athletes diets when focus is put on just the macronutrient makeup. Whatever your goal may be (weight loss, build muscle, or optimize performance), it’s important to eat your greens.
