The Best Way to Try Chia Seeds
By now you’ve heard of chia seed benefits. But if you’re like most, you’re not sure if you’ll like them, or even how to use them.
Chia seeds are one of the most nutrient-dense foods in existence. A three-tablespoon serving has more than twice the iron as a cup of spinach, as much potassium as a banana, twice the fiber of a cup of oatmeal, and the antioxidants of a serving of blueberries. To round it off, unsaturated fats help transport these nutrients throughout the body for optimal cell function.
What else has nutrient density fit for a Spartan? One scoop of Athletic Greens will add nutrition benefits to aid the exact processes just mentioned, and more. Their perfect balance of vitamins and minerals is crucial for nervous system function and a fundamental building block of a strong immune system. How? Through nutrients such as vitamins C, E, B6, B1, B2, B12, K2, and calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, zinc citrate, manganese, copper, chromium, and selenium.
