Seeds are vital to a healthy human diet. They are filled with essential fats, protein, amino acids, fibre and antioxidants. Seeds can assist with weight loss, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol and maintaining a strong brain function.
Today’s review looks at Nature’s Path Qi’a Superfood Breafast Cereal.
Amazon offers the Qi’a Superfood Cereal for approx. CAD$8 per bag (225g).
A bag will last for about 5 days with a couple of tbsps consumed daily.
This product is vegan, organic, non-GMO and gluten-free.
The Original blend contains chia seeds, buckwheat groats and hemp seeds. May contain: soy, peanuts, milk or tree nuts. No sugar.
DOES IT WORK?
The product promises to boost your nutrition and increase your energy while providing a feeling of fullness with only a couple of tablespoons.
I used the product for a period of one month. It can be consumed as breakfast cereal, but I tried it as an afternoon snack with natural yogurt.
Nutritionally – WORKS! 2 tbsps provide 15% of daily recommended iron intake, 16% of fibre, 6g of plant-based protein and 2g of Omega-6 and Omega 3 fatty acids.
Energy-wise – WORKS! I noted a good boost to energy levels, specifically because I simply felt healthier.
Feeling of fullness with 2 tbsps – WORKS SOMEWHAT! 2 tbsps did not make me feel full. I used 3 tbsps. With a tall glass of water, I felt fully satisfied.
The nutritional content is absolutely incredible.
It assists GREATLY with regulating digestion and increasing energy levels.
I plan to continue consuming Qi’a Superfood as part of my daily diet!
Taste is not fantastic. The original tastes like, well, seeds. While the Cranberry Vanilla and Apple Cinnamon taste a bit better, they also have more sugar.
And who likes to have seeds in their teeth?! Not me! Drink lots of water and keep tooth floss around.
4 HEARTS OUT OF 5 for this product.
