Boxer David Haye credits Japanese algae for toned body
UK boxer David Haye, who flaunted his toned body in 'I'm a Celebrity' earlier this week, has attributed his admirable muscles to some green algae from Japan.
The 32-year-old sportsperson claimed that his incredible muscle tone was because of a Japanese supplement made from microscopic freshwater algae.
"My team work hard at making sure I get the world's finest fighting fuel, that includes Japanese whole food Sun Chlorella," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
"Nutrition is fundamental to getting the most out of all my training and help deliver the knock-out punch," he said.
Kaye is believed to have been introduced to the supplement by his coach Ruben Tabares who claims the amino acids, chlorophyll, iron and B vitamins in the nutritional supplement boost energy before workouts and CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) nucleic acids helps with muscle repair and inflammation afterwards.
The product has been big in Japan for some time while it has built up a cult following in the UK.
Devotees include Victoria Beckham who is said to use it as a dieting tool, and Miranda Kerr who takes it for its high Vitamin A content which is beneficial for the skin.
