I love getting stuff in the mail. Especially when it's something I'm really stoked on, like this new drink Chia\Vie.
Three flavors of awesomeness
A couple weeks ago I met the owners of Chia\Vie, Mark and Camille at the Women's Expo in San Mateo. They were both super cool and smart, and we chatted for a while about the role of energy drinks in sports. Mark and Camille are both athletes and understand what it takes to lead a healthy, energized life. The good thing is that it looks like most athletes are beginning to understand the importance of what they put into their bodies. Products with 12-letter ingredients that boast a couple hour energy spike are looked at with more caution. People are instead turning to drinks that promote natural ingredients with natural sustaining energy that doesn't wreck havoc on their organs. Chia\Vie is one of those good-for-you drinks and it's coming out at the right time. It isn't even distributed in Tahoe yet, so Mark was awesome and sent me a box to enjoy and share with my friends.

The main difference between Chia\Vie and other health/energy smoothies is it's use of Chia seeds. Chia seeds have been used as food since 3500 BC and were a main staple of the Aztec and Mayan diets.
Chia seeds have:
8x more Omega-3s than salmon
25% more dietary fiber than flax seed
30% more antioxidants than blueberries
15x more magnesium than broccoli
5x more calcium than whole milk
3x more iron then spinach
50% more folate content than asparagus

Chia\Vie mixes these amazing seeds with fruit to make a super-good-for-you naturally energizing drink. Seriously, there's nothing else in it. This it the ingredients list of the one I'm drinking right now: Purified water, orange juice concentrate, mango puree, apple juice concentrate, ground chia seeds, banana puree, natural flavor, gellan. That's it.

Anyways, this drink does a lot of awesome things for your brain power, metabolism, energy, and all around health. Check out more info at their website here.

Excuse the dark make-up. I'm done up for Halloween.
