Why I Adore Mamma Chia

By Anna Judd

 
 
 

 

When I first started this project, the one sponsor that I wanted more than any other was Mamma Chia, simply because I love their product so much. I learned about using chia seeds as a tool for running when I read Christopher McDougal's "Born to Run". In it they described how the Tarahumara, a indigenous culture of ultra-runners in Mexico, drink chia fresca on long runs.

 

Chia seeds have so much nutritional value its kind of hard to believe, including Omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, as well as other key minerals. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contains 10 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, more calcium than milk, more Omega-3s than salmon, more iron than spinach, and more antioxidants than blueberries. Chia seeds provide a boatload of nutrients absolutely essential for runners, nutrients that improve endurance, fight fat, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery.

 

Mamma chia makes drinks and snacks from chia seeds using all organic and non-GMO ingredients. The best thing about mamma chia (from the perspective of a runner that spends a lot of time eating a lot of healthy food) is that is friggin' delicious. Mamma Chia was one of the first companies to reach out and support me, and I even met an Air Force veteran working in their warehouse the first time I went to their offices. Awesome job, Mamma Chia, for being such an ethical and sustainable company.
