Top 5: Smoothies for boxers

Nutritionist Marc Fell shares five great recipes for smoothies that will help boxers

5. Immunity-boosting smoothie
THE immune booster includes a range of different fruits, vegetables, seeds and essential fatty acids in order to improve and protect the immune function of a boxer, which may become potentially compromised under certain heavy training periods i.e. during a training camp. These foods all contain essential vitamins and minerals that may be lacking in the diet of a boxer who may not regularly eat fruit or vegetables.
