CHIA WITH MIXED BERRIES
Our Chia and Mixed Berries Smoothie combines the health benefits of Chia with the antioxidant and the high antioxidant and vitamin C found in our cranberries and blueberries which are grown throughout the Americas. These berries, recognized as superfoods provide nutrients, antioxidants and phytochemicals which may help prevent (and, in some cases, reverse) the effects of aging, cardiovascular disease.
Originating in Mexico, Chia was so valued by the Aztecs and Mayans that the seeds were even used as currency. Chia, meaning “strength” in the Mayan language, has been a source of high energy and endurance for centuries. Containing high concentrations of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, Chia seeds provide numerous health benefits such as aiding digestive health, regulating cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, boosting energy and metabolism, strengthening bones and weight loss.
