Chia Powered the Aztecs
Chia is the ultimate superfood. Yes, it's small, but don't doubt its power; it earned the name 'runner's food' by powering the Tarahumara Indians on their legendary long-distance runs. Before that, it fueled Aztec Warriors in battle and Aztec Messengers on their cross-empire journeys. You can rely on Chia to conquer whatever challenges life throws in front of you.

What's with the name?
The name Health Warrior comes from two things: One, it’s symbolic – Chia is for the Health Warrior in all of us. And the battle Health Warrior is waging is in support of our country’s health. Obesity and the health concerns that come with it are a serious problem; Health Warrior is about winning that battle and good health is the first step toward doing so.Two, Chia Seeds have a history of powering Ancient Aztec Warriors through cross empire journeys.

Potassium is the third most abundant mineral in the body and vital to tissue integrity, cell function and general health.
Deficiency may be associated with fatigue/poor sleep, muscular weakness, arrhythmia (irregular heart rate), anxiety, and – most importantly – elevated blood pressure
Ok, a lot of nutrients, but what does it all mean for my day-to-day?
Why am I just hearing about this miraculous food?
In 1519 Spanish conquistadors arrived in what is now Mexico with just over 500 men. Within three years, Cortés brought about the fall of the ancient Aztec Empire of five million people. One of the tactics of the Spanish Conquistadors during their ensuing South American colonization was the systematized destruction of indigenous traditions and culture; the Chia plant was among the most important cultural traditions of the Aztec and Mayan civilization, so accordingly, Cortes tried to wipe it out, and nearly succeeded. It has just been cultivated at scale again in the past two decades.
Is all Chia made equal?
No. A thousand times no! Health Warrior has made it their mission to vet out the most Premium Chia Seeds and bring them to you. If a farmer harvests Chia too early, many of the nutrition benefits are lost. Their growers harvest at the exact right time, and use No Tillage Farming, which is environmentally sustainable and produces healthy soil. Healthy soil = great nutrients for the Chia plant = the very best Chia = Chia, the Warrior Way. Their organically grown Chia Seeds have 100% traceability from Farm to Package and are Kosher, Halal, Non-GMO, and Gluten-Free.

Do Chia Seeds help with weight loss?
The fiber, quality protein, and significant density of nutrients per calorie found in Health Warrior Chia Seeds create a satiating effect on your appetite; you get more nutrition from less food, meaning Chia fills you up to slim you down. Health Warrior Chia Seeds have a Glycemic Index score of 1 – unlike most foods in the modern diet – which means they will help control your blood sugar and prevent cravings.
Do Chia Seeds help increase energy and endurance?
The Aztec word for Chia means “Running Food”. Its primary use throughout history was as endurance and health food — ancient societies, including the Aztec civilization and the Mayans, accorded great value to their prized Chia Seeds. Chia Seeds are hydrophilic; they absorb more than 10 times their weight in water, and act like tiny camels in your body, keeping athletes well-hydrated and energized.It’s written that Aztec messengers would transverse their empire – from the Atlantic to the Pacific – with nothing but a pouch of chia for sustenance.
What if, hypothetically speaking of course, I don’t run 15 miles a day?
That’s ok. You don’t have to be an avid runner to get the health benefits of Chia Seeds. Chia is still one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet, still filled with “good for you’s” like fiber, antioxidants and omega-3’s, and still a critical food to any healthy, balanced diet.
How many of these bars can I eat a day?
Eat more than four or five and you might end up running through a wall, but hey, that’d be ok, Chia gives you strong bones & muscles to show that wall who’s boss. But really, the recommended intake of Chia is two to four tablespoons a day, so you can eat about six bars in a day.
What happens if I end up eating Health Warrior Chia Bars and nothing else?
Health Warrior Chia Bars have tons of nutrition, but should be part of a well balanced diet. They recommend drinking a glass of water along with your Health Warrior Chia Bars. To keep you well hydrated & increase the benefits of their Chia Bars.
Why are Omega-3’s so important and what is the proper ratio of Omega 3’s to Omega 6’s?
Omega-3's and omega-6's are essential fatty acids that our body needs to function normally. They help reduce inflammation, support blood vessel and joint health, and even brain function. Our bodies cannot make these on their own, though, we have to obtain them from our diet.To stay in optimal health, it’s important to consume equal amounts of omega-6's and omega-3's. However, unlike omega-6's which are found in seeds, nuts and oils already prevalent in the modern diet (think vegetable oil, soybeans and peanuts), omega-3's are actually found in fewer foods sources, and generally obtained through cold water fish, like salmon or sardines. Chia Seeds are one of nature’s best sources of omega-3's.

About Warrior Health
Five centuries after the Aztec Warriors built an empire on the power of Chia, the founders of Warrior Health learned about the benefits of Chia while reading the best-selling book Born to Run, about the Tarahumara Indians and their jaw-dropping long-distance runs. The Tarahumara, like the Aztecs before them, are Powered by Chia.
They looked into it further, and were floored by what the found. Turns out Chia is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.
They started eating Chia every day, on everything. Suddenly they were working out harder, lifting heavier, feeling stronger, and running farther, faster.
With that, Health Warrior was born.
Health Warrior is dedicated to vetting the world's growers for the highest quality Chia and helping people conquer the many challenges of their everyday lives.
