Nourishment Notes

Chia Seeds

Small-in-size but packed with nutrients, chia seeds are loaded with fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Fiber helps promote gut health, protein provides building blocks to help make new and healthy cells, and omega-3 fatty acids may help to lower inflammation.

Cocoa Powder

In moderation, dark chocolate cocoa powder may provide beneficial antioxidants important to reducing inflammation.


Raspberries are antioxidant rich, which may help to lower inflammation. They are also a good source of fiber which promotes digestive health.
