Pineapple juice with Chia
Chia, a small seed, packs a big punch. The word is Mayan and actually means “strength." It is such a powerful
little seed that Aztec warriors used it to give them high energy and increase their strength. Just 28 grams of
chia seeds yields 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and nine grams of omega-3 fats. Chia is full of fiber,
giving the added benefit of helping one feel full without having to take on more calories. It is clearly one of
the healthiest and most nutritious foods anywhere. We combined those benefits with the great tasting and
very healthy pineapple.
Some of the benefits of Pineapple include; Immune system support, increase in bone strength, anti-inflammatory benefits, helps with digestion and improvement of eye health. In fact, pineapples can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a disease that affects the eyes as people age, due to its high amount of vitamin C, and the antioxidants it contains.
