Health Warrior Chia Bars Help You Win The Daily Battle!
NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Health Warrior announced today a nationwide roll-out of Health Warrior Chia Bars onto Whole Foods shelves this month. 100% natural, nutrient-rich, and around 100 calories, they are packed full of the ultimate superfood, chia.
“This product has a unique place in the nutrition bar category, and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers a convenient way to get the benefits of chia seeds,” said Jeremiah McElwee, executive Whole Body coordinator, Whole Foods Market. “The bars taste great and they are packed with nutrition.”
Health Warrior co-founders, Dan Gluck and Nick Morris, are former NCAA Division 1 athletes and everyday Health Warriors. They discovered chia seeds after reading about the Tarahumara Indians in the book Born to Run, where the Tarahumara are reported to run up to a hundred miles without shoes, sustained by the mighty chia seed. Gluck and Morris, intrigued by this epic story, embarked on some further research and realized that chia is the greatest superfood unknown to mankind.
“Chia seeds are on the march to regain their historic place at the top of the nutrient-dense real food chain, and Health Warrior is excited to help lead the way with our Chia Bars, our community of Warriors, and great partners like Whole Foods Market,” says Health Warrior co-founder Dan Gluck.
Health Warrior Chia Bars provide a convenient, delicious way to “chia on-the-go.” With under 5 grams of sugar per bar, they are a satiating, good-for-you snack. Easy to toss in a purse or pack into the kids’ lunchbox, the benefits of chia are at your fingertips.
Chia seeds pack a mighty punch in a small package. ¼ the size of a grain of rice, pound for pound, chia has more Omega 3 fatty acids than salmon, more fiber than oatmeal, more protein than tofu, more calcium than milk, and more magnesium than broccoli. Health Warrior’s 100 Calorie Chia Bars boast chia seeds as their #1 ingredient with 1000 mg Omega 3s, 16% DV of Fiber, and only 5g of sugar. The bars are all-natural, vegan, dairy and soy free. Available in Acai Berry, Coconut, or Chocolate Peanut Butter, they are all around 100 calories and retail for approximately $1.89 per bar, or $29.99 for a box.
