So, last week we introduced a fantastic new beverage, Mamma Chia.  Our guests and team members are going nuts for this drink!  Every time you turn around, someone is raving about the taste and health benefits of Mamma Chia.  Youtube videos are on repeat, the refrigerator in our office is stocked, and some of us are even talking about it in our sleep.   

The seeds you see perfectly suspended in the bottle are organic Chia seeds and they are packed with nutrients:  2000mg of Omega-3’s, 10g of Balanced Fiber, tons of antioxidants, and 4g of protein.  Mamma Chia has received rave reviews in other markets, and we are the first retailer outside of California to put it on our shelves!    

So, what’s the story behind Chia seeds?  Read below (from the Mamma Chia website):

“Chia seeds, an ancient grain, were revered by both the Mayans and Aztecs for their amazing energy and natural healing powers – in fact, “chia” is the Mayan word for “strength.” In pre-Columbian times, chia seeds were a main component of both the Aztec and Mayan diets, and played a prominent role in religious ceremonies. One tablespoon of the seeds was considered capable of sustaining a warrior for 24 hours.”

We could go on all day about the amazing energy and benefits that come with Mamma Chia, but we’d love to hear from you!  Better workouts at the gym? More energy during yoga? Scoring more goals in your soccer game?  Leave a comment below and tell us how Mamma Chia has improved your day.
