Here’s a video showing the legendary athlete Hobie Call being the first to cross the finish line. This is routine for him. Recently retired, Hobie is synonymous with Spartan athletics. Out of the last 46 Spartan Races he entered, he won 37 of them, including the World Championships in 2011, 2013 and 2014. Hobie holds the Guinness World Record for lunging a mile. He beat the previous world record by 5 minutes in 2008. He ranked in the top 2% for Spartan Sprint, top 5% for Spartan Super and top 3% as a marathon runner.
Pines Wheat Grass has been a Staple in his Diet
Hobie has used Pines Wheat Grass for many years. He estimates he has gone through several hundred bottles of the largest (24 ounce) size of Pines Wheat Grass powder since he has been an athlete.
Hobie tends to prefers the powders. Others athletes tend to prefer tablets or capsules. All are great solutions for not only for an athlete but for everyone. Research has shown most people do not eat enough dark green vegetables for good health and longevity.
Hobie says, “Thank you Pines International for your exceptional Wheat Grass. The health required to continually win races as brutal as these is great. I contribute mine more to your products than anything else I eat. I have used your Wheat Grass for many years, and intend to continue for many more.”
For 40 years, the Preferred Green Foods for Athletes
Established in 1976, Pines was the Official Green Food of the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii, and is the top choice of marathon runners, triathletes, body builders and other high level performance athletes for more than 40 years. With studies regarding blood building qualities of dark green, leafy vegetables and the increase in nitric oxide they provide, it has become understandable why so many athletes say that Pines gives them an edge.
Growing and Packaging Standards are Important
Not all wheatgrass and other green superfoods are equal. Some are harvested at the wrong time and some are packaged in plastic bottles and paper packets. All Pines products are grown in accordance with recognized standards. We have always been packaged appropriately in amber glass bottles with special metal caps. This packaging allows Pines to remove the oxygen from each bottle. That protects from the nutritional deterioration that occurs with other kinds of packaging. After opening, the metal caps allow the consumer to tightly seal bottles between use to keep the contents as fresh as when harvested at the once-a-year time when correctly grown wheatgrass reaches its peak nutritional level.
With Pines, you receive the chlorophyll and dark green vegetable nutrients that are lacking in 9 out of 10 diets, including high performance athletes who seek more stamina, endurance and faster recovery.
