Finally, a Family-Focused Sports Drink…Drink Chia!
When it comes to the vast majority of sports drinks on the market today, perception is quite different from reality. Sure, their multi-million dollar ad campaigns featuring über-fit athletes paint the picture of health, but the fact of the matter is, there’s alot of marketing trickery at play. It turns out, that neon-purple concoction might not be all it’s cracked up to be!
Excessive sugar, caffeine, artificial chemicals, and dyes are just some of the evils lurking within many of those sporty bottles. As if that’s not bad enough, a recent HuffingtonPost article sheds light on one of the less thought-about health risks that common sports drinks pose – tooth decay.
Sugary sports drinks have fast-acting, irreversible, damaging effects on your child’s teeth. The study in Dentistry Digest tested several leading brands of sports drinks and concluded that significant damage to tooth enamel can occur in just five days!
It’s time to ask—is there a healthy alternative out there? Is there a sports drink that isn’t full of empty promises (and sugar)? Isn’t there something other than water that I can actually feel good about giving my children?
Drink Chia! is infused with organic chia seeds, a superfood rich in omega-3 fatty acids that naturally maintains hydration. The drink is free of stimulants and contains only 4 grams of sugar, and here’s the bonus—no other drink offers the same dose of vitamins, antioxidants and omega-3 found in just one, 8oz bottle of Drink Chia.
Chandra Davis, Drink Chia co-founder and marathon-running mom of two, developed a family gem—serendipitously. She originally set out to create a healthy sports drink for her fellow runners and discovered an unexpected benefit.
“When I was developing our recipe from homemade concoctions in my kitchen, I focused on enhancing my performance as an athlete,” said Davis. “When my sons started to ask me for it, I realized we had developed something our whole family could benefit from.”
Apart from being healthy, it’s also practical. The small packaging is ideal not only for packing in lunch boxes and backpacks, it’s also a realistic serving. Davis said, “The giant bottles that leading brands sell are sugar-saturated, oversized portions. It’s no wonder they contribute to tooth decay. Our recipe only calls for 4 grams of sugar per serving and that’s all the sweetness you need!”
Drink Chia! is an easy way to get your kids the nutrition they need without the harmful effects of excessive sugar. So, kick the common sports drink to the curb and make Drink Chia! the smart decision for your family.
