But what makes THESE oats oh-so-special?

 

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds have long been known for their nutritional qualities and have become a modern day superfood. These teeny tiny seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch, rich in fibre, protein, Omega-3s, calcium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorous, they also contain a healthy dose of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and B2. They are also rich in antioxidants, which can help fight the production of free radicals.

 

Goji Berries

Considered both a fruit and a herb, goji berries have a long list of health benefits. Loaded with beta-carotene, they can help promote healthy skin. Goji berries have also been known to help boost the immune system and are an excellent antioxidant because of their high ORAC value. They’re also low in calories, fat-free and packed full of fibre – which can help your digestive system and help with weight management.

 

Linseeds

Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Also know as flaxseed, these magical seeds are high in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Research suggests that plant omega-3s help the cardiovascular system in several ways, including anti-inflammatory action and normalising the heartbeat. They’re also rich in lignans, which have both plant oestrogen and antioxidant qualities. Last but not least, they’re packed full of both soluble and insoluble fibre.

 

Matcha

Matcha outmatches all other teas in terms of its health benefits. One cup of this incredible powdered green tea is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of regular brewed green tea. The difference with drinking matcha is, you ingest the entire leaf, as opposed to just the water that comes from a regular green tea bag. Matcha is packed with antioxidants, can help to boost your metabolism and burn calories, helps detoxify the body and can help to calm the mind and relax the body as well as enhance your mood and aid concentration. It is also rich in fibre, chlorophyll, vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium.

 

So what are you waiting for? It’s oat-so-simple, there’s no need for milk, all you need is water so pop the kettle on and wash it down with a Bootea Morning Tea.
