Green vegetables such as spinach, curly kale and endive, and superfoods such as spirulina, chlorella and wheat grass all contain chlorophyll.

Ecdysterone, a steroid-like substance found in spinach, quinoa and bodybuilding supplements, has a stronger anabolic effect than scientists suspected. German biochemists have worked out how ecdysterone makes muscle fibres bigger and stronger – and they think that this natural steroid can help the elderly to maintain muscle strength.

Bodybuilding supplements containing methoxivone may have an exceptionally strong oestrogenic effect. Irish researchers at Queen’s University Belfast in Belfast, write about this in the September 2014 issue of Food Chemistry. They tested a methoxivone supplement in test tubes and observed an oestrogenic effect 130 times above the level that toxicologists regard as acceptable.

Bodybuilders who skip the occasional workout – because they lack the time or inclination – make just as much progress as bodybuilders who never miss a session.
