Why do we add chia seeds to our juice?
We get this question a lot. Here are a few of the many amazing reasons we use them in wow.
- A complete source of plant protein? No whey!
Chia seeds contain all 8 essential amino acids which is pretty rare amongst plant-based proteins. Plus they have 17g per 100g. Wow! Our signature green juice packs 7.25g of protein, more than a medium sized egg.
- Fibre for days
One of the main reasons we’ve added chia seeds is their high fibre content. This not only keep you fuller for longer but also positively affects the absorption of natural sugars found in our juice, preventing blood sugar spikes. No more 4pm slumps.
- Omega-3, without the fishy taste
Essential fatty acids (think fish oil) help to fight inflammation, contributing to proper brain function and good vision. Our juices have 2.4g of Omega-3 in every bottle – almost 10 times more than the recommended daily intake!
- Hydration for the long-haul
One of our favourite facts about chia seeds is that they absorb thirty times their weight in water, regulating blood fluid levels. This keeps your muscles, skin & body hydrated for a longer time so you can keep pushing.
- Antioxidants, pro-youth
By combining raw fruit, veg – already brimming with antioxidants – & chia seeds we transform our juice into an antioxidant powerhouse. Antioxidants not only slow down the ageing process, but are great for the immune system, fight radicals and protect your cells.
