Mega Antioxidant Mixed Berry & Chia Smoothie

What Are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are compounds produced in your body and found in foods. They help defend your cells from damage caused by potentially harmful molecules known as free radicals.

The fruits used to make this smoothie are rich in antioxidants.

What are chia seeds?

Chia seeds are smooth, shiny, grey-black seeds measuring around 2mm. Yep, they’re very tiny! Native to Central and Southern America, chia seeds go by the botanical name of Salvia hispanica.

Chia seeds benefits were known long before they gained modern-day ‘superfood’ status. It’s believed that they were one of the four basic foods of Central American civilizations, who often used them for medicinal purposes too.

The word ‘chia’ actually means ‘strength’ in Mayan (the language family of Central America and Mexico). This owes to the fact that Mayan and Aztec cultures prized chia seeds for their ability to provide strength and stamina. It is said that Aztec warriors swore by a spoon of chia seeds a day to boost their energy!
