by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) Just about everybody who harks back a few decades are familiar with the famed cartoon character Popeye the Sailor Man, who downed a can of spinach to produce bulging muscles whenever he needed to get out of trouble. As researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Swedenfound have discovered, it turns out that Popeye was right - spinach really can boost muscles.
According to the research, which was published in the February issue of the journal Cell Metabolism, eating a bowl of spinach every day makes your muscles "profoundly" more efficient. Researchers found that eating 300g spinach reduced the amount of oxygen needed to power muscles when exercising by as much as five percent.
