My Review On Drink Chia Drinks!

Disclaimer I received  5 chia drinks for free in return for my honest review!

                                My Review
Drink Chia sent me 5 drinks to try and review in the flavors  2 Strawberry Citrus, Honeysuckle pear, Lemon Blue Berry and mango tangerine.  I was really excited to try these. I never heard of a drink that had seeds in them. So I was really eager to see if i liked it since its so healthy for you. To my surprise I loved them! They had great flavor! The only thing is I had to get use to the seeds sliding down my throat it was kind of strange at first. They were also very filling. I love how they keep me hydrated. My favorite flavor was the strawberry citrus. I will continue to drink these they were amazing! You really should give them a try I really think you will enjoy them as much as i did!! :]

In a one-ounce (28 g) sample, dried chia seeds contain 9% of the Daily Value for protein (4g), 13% fat (9g) (57% of which is ALA) and 42% dietary fiber (11g), based on a daily intake of 2000 calories. The seeds also contain the essential minerals phosphorus, manganese, calcium, potassium and sodium in amounts comparable to other edible seeds, such as flax or sesame. Nutritional Data Website
Chia Seeds Nutrition
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that is vital for optimal body health and function.  Chia seeds contain 8 times more Omega-3 than salmon.
Magnesium is involved in the synthesis of protein, and is an important co-factor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body, many of which contribute to the production of energy. While calcium impacts muscle contractions, magnesium balances that effect and relaxes muscles. Chia seeds contain fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli.
Calcium is the chief supportive element in bones and teeth, and its salt makes up about 70 percent of bone by weight, providing your bones with their strength and rigidity. Chia seeds provide five times more calcium than milk.
Iron is an essential mineral and an important component of the proteins involved in oxygen transport and metabolism. When iron is low, oxygen consumption slows down. Chia seeds contain three times more iron than spinach. Comparing iron content of chia seed with other traditional iron-rich sources products, chia seed has 1.8, and 2.4 times more iron per 100 grams of edible portion than lentils and beef liver.

The anti-oxidant properties of fruits and seeds help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease
You know that blueberries and several exotic fruits (that aren’t always in season) have anti-oxidants, but did you know that chia is extremely high in anti-oxidants too? These helpful substances are what makes the Chia Seed stay fresh for so long. At room temperature, they’ll stay fresh and ready to eat for over two whole years! And that’s all without a single chemical or preservative. This amazing ability is not found in other seeds like flax or sesame, because those seeds don’t have the same rich anti-oxidant content. Chia seeds have three times more anti-oxidants than blueberries.
Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein and the body uses protein to build and repair tissues. Protein is also used to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Chia seeds have five times more protein than kidney beans. Chia seed possesses 23 percent protein, this is higher than other traditional cereals such as wheat(13.7 %), corn(9.4 %), rice(6.5 %), oats(16.9 percent) and barley(12.5 %).
Fiber adds bulk to your diet and makes you feel full faster, helping you control your weight. Fiber helps digestion and helps prevent constipation. You can get fiber from whole grains, beans, nuts, fruits and vegetables.. Comparing the fiber content of chia, it has 1.6, 2.3, 2.6, 8.3 and 9.8 times more fiber per 100 grams of an edible portion than barley, wheat, oats, corn and rice, respectively. Chia seeds contain 25% more fiber than flax seeds.
Potassium is essential for the proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system. Chia seeds have twice the potassium of bananas.
Chia Seeds compares to beans, bananas, and blueberries in nutritional value
Phosphorus is an essential mineral that is required by every cell in the body for normal function. Next to calcium, phosphorus is the most abundant mineral in the body. These 2 important nutrients work closely together to build strong bones and teeth. Chia seeds have eight times more phosphorus than whole milk.
Zinc is one of the minerals that are important for your body to stay healthy. Your body uses minerals for many different jobs, including building bones, making hormones and regulating your heartbeat.
Manganese is a mineral that is found in several foods including nuts, legumes, seeds, tea, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables. It is considered an essential nutrient, because the body requires it to function properly.
Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health but required only in small amounts. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make seleno proteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of seleno proteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals.
