I read about Drink Chia! a couple of months ago and got really curious. As I tried to find it in stores on The Big Island I got a little bit disappointed and gave up the thought of trying the drink at least until next time I’d get to visit the mainland of the US. I’m not really into ordering stuff online that I haven’t had a chance of trying.
So out of curiosity I contacted Drink Chia on twitter to ask if they were planing on getting their product to Hawaii and they offered to send me some drinks to try out. So, here comes my review:
In DrinkChia you can see chia seeds floating around and they also add a little bit of texture to the drink. The chia seeds have a lot of good properties and benefit our body in many ways! To mention some of the contents of the seeds: anti-oxidants, protein, Omega-3, dietary fibers, vitamins (one drink contains 100% RDA of B6 and B12) and minerals (such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and sodium amongst others). I’m stoked to see that I can get a lot of these important substances through drinking a tasty drink instead of having to watch my diet and/or get extra supplements!
To give you an idea of HOW full of good stuff theses seeds are, Chia seeds contain:
– three times more antioxidants than blueberries
– 25% more fiber than flax seeds
– 8 times more Omega-3 than salmon
– five times more calcium than milk
– five times more protein than kidney beans
– the double of potassium than a banana
– fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli
Pretty amazing, huh?! I could also tell you that you get all this, but the drink only contains 40 calories and 4g of sugar!
And what about the taste of the drink? Well I love it! Every time I drink DrinkChia! I feel energized and refreshed. I’ve been drinking it as a part of my post run procedure and it really leaves me feeling great. I like that the added chia seeds in the drink makes it feel like more than just a drink, almost like a meal because of the texture of the seeds in the drink. Maybe some people would find this weird, but I sure do love it..
I got one of each flavor of Drink Chia! They are:
B Meyer Lemon
All the four flavors were great, they felt fresh and tasted nothing but NATURAL (don’t you just hate it when you have a drink that tastes artificial and wierd? Well, NONE of that here!) I especially love the Honeysuckle Pear and Mango Tangerine.
So what is Drink Chia good for, except for a nice refreshing drink and a good way to get some great nutritions? Well, because of the amazing contents in this drink you help your body out with hydration and keep you going throughout your day but you also help you and your body moving towards a healthier life in the long run!
