Food is not just fuel, no matter who pushes you to into obsession over calories or protein. Creating a conscious intention around the food you eat to heal, strengthen and support your immune system is not just healthy, it’s an act of kindness to your body!
This Vitality Chia Pot is an ideal breakfast or midday snack and is full of anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting vitamins. The Rosehip tea base is known for calming gastrointestinal issues and relaxing muscle cramping as well as helping to decrease blood sugar levels. Added silica supports strength and elasticity to your connective tissue and improves your bodies water retention (ie debloats). Chlorophyll, especially when consumed first thing in the morning for best support in liver detoxification, improves the quality of red blood cells, reduces bacterial growth and is known to lessen harmful cholesterol levels. Lastly, chia seeds are full of antioxidants that fight the production of free radicals and the fiber helps create healthy gut flora.
