The Aztec warriors used chia seeds as a source of fuel before going into battle to boost endurance and stamina. Back then, chia seeds were considered to be almost magical because of their ability to increase stamina and sustain energy over long periods of time.
But chia seeds are not the only natural energizing, amazing ingredient used in this sports drink…dates! Medjool dates are high in potassium to help balance your sodium levels and release energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
Medjools also contain copper, magnesium, and manganese. They provide “good carbs,” rating low to low/medium on the Glycemic Index (GI). A diet rich in low-GI carbs keeps your blood sugar stable, helping maintain healthy weight and ensuring that you enjoy sustained energy without the crash you can get from snack bars and processed foods.
