Keep your Belly Happy with Chia + Probiotics

Kunachia on The Organic Beauty Blog

A happy digestive system is the basis of a slender waistline, glowing skin, and elevated mood, so I am a huge proponent of daily steps to boost digestive health.  I take my probiotics daily, I add awesome soluble fiber to my daily smoothies and oats, and I eat all kinds of prebiotic foods like greens, bananas, and alliums every day.

But when I find a way to combine some of these steps into one, I get super pumped. Enter: Kunachia, a perfect blend of organic, milled chia seeds and probiotics.  Loaded with omega-3’s, antioxidants, fiber and protein, Kunachia scrubs your intestines of toxic buildup, while populating your gut with beneficial bacteria.  This nutritional one-two punch is super powerful for all areas of your health, making it the perfect addition to your morning smoothies, oats, yogurt, and desserts!

Amazing Health Benefits:

Chia Seeds

  • Super high in fiber — scrubbing clean the digestive tract
  • Great for promoting healthy weight
  • Helps you feel fuller longer
  • High in protein
  • More omega-3’s than salmon, gram for gram
  • Increase energy
  • Boost mood
  • Lower risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease
  • High in calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus

Probiotics

  • Maintain digestive health
  • Promote healthy elimination
  • Boost mood, prevent depression and anxiety
  • Lower stress levels
  • Decrease bloating and gas
  • Improve immunity
  • Increase energy
  • Improve skin, especially with issues like psoriasis
  • Promote health weight
  • Prevent bad breath and tooth decay

Better still, Kunachia is organic, with chia seeds sustainably harvested from small farms in Ecuador as part of the “Kuna Project,” an initiative that supports farmers and fair trade practices.  It’s currently only available in the US at Sam’s Club, but hopefully they’ll be getting into more stores soon!

I’ve been using Kunachia in my morning smoothies and have been loving the increase in energy and the glowing goodness I feel. But I’m also super into using Kunachia in baking and desserts.

Check out my amazing, vegan superfood chocolate pudding below!  Not only is this dessert super healthy and guilt-free, but it totally tastes like real, indulgent chocolate pudding.  YUMS!
