Chia seeds: if not already on your radar as a tried and true energy food, get ready for a sweet introduction to the potential of these little powerhouses. Chia fresca, also called iskiate, is a beverage made from chia seeds, a little sweetener, and lime juice, but Natural Force has upped the ante with their own recipe, adding bee pollen and royal jelly for a slow build of endurance. The result - Iskiate Endurance - is a gentle fire of energy in your legs and in your belly, leaving you not too full but far from hungry. It's a little bit sweet and substantial, more so that you might expect from an 'energy drink' and more along the lines of a meal replacement. It's hard to really explain how well this works - you'll just have to shake some up yourself and fly through your next long workout.
Iskiate . . . wait a second . . . come again? How does one pronounce this weird word? Honestly, it took me awhile to figure it out. First I tried "I-skee-yah-tey", then maybe "I-skee-yate". According to Natural Force, they prefer "IS-kee-ah-tey" - that works for me! Honestly, just mix up some of this superfood for your next workout.
In Natural Force's own words: Iskiate Endurance is a unique blend of superfoods designed to help provide you with sustained energy during your workouts. It will nutritionally support intense physical endurance and help delay muscle fatigue so you can train harder and longer. Let’s be honest: nothing is worse than running out of gas before the finish line. Drinking Iskiate Endurance before you get there will help your mind and body stay completely fueled and operating at peak efficiency… no matter what you throw at it.
Alright, so we know it is hard to pronounce… but this stuff is the bee's knees! Our Iskiate (IS-kee-ah-tay), is a traditional blend of the finest organic chia seeds and honey, plus some other cool stuff for a Natural Force twist. This incredibly refreshing drink is inspired by the Tarahumara, a tribe of super athletes who would drink Iskiate during their runs of up to 200 miles on end without stopping. That is running for two days straight… talk about some serious endurance! The power of Iskiate lies in the carbohydrates, omega-3's, and amino acids provided to help prolong physical endurance to a remarkable level. You can talk the talk, now make like the Tarahumara and walk the walk—or should we say RUN THE RUN!
What this drink can do for you:
The key ingredient of Iskiate Endurance is Chia, or Salvia Hispanica L. the ancient super food of the Aztecs who valued it more highly than gold. The Tarahumara in Copper Canyon, Mexico, the greatest long distance runners on the planet, have had a long history of using this slow burning rocket fuel for both athletes and warriors alike. Chia typically contains 20% protein, 34% oil, and 25% dietary fibre. It is also the highest Omega-3 nutrient source found in nature with perfectly balanced Omega 3, 6, 9 profiles and ratios. This recently revived oil seed crop is considered a perfect food because it‘s one of the few vegetarian sources of complete protein. Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals. They provide stamina, endurance and reduce cravings, because chia seeds absorb so much water and have high soluble fibre levels that help release natural, unrefined carbohydrate energy slowly into the bloodstream.
Honey is not only an excellent primal sweetener, but it has a host of positive nutritional benefits. It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers.
Bee pollen is a superfood that is produced by flowering plants and is then gathered by bees. Bee pollen is the primary source of dietary protein for bees.
Royal Jelly is a thick milky substance which is secreted by worker bees that is responsible for the transformation of an ordinary worker bee into the Queen bee. This superfood enables the queen bee to grow 40% larger and live 40 times longer than the average worker bee.
Stevia leaf is a natural sweetening agent just perfect for a gentle boost of taste without excess calories or energy spikes.
Mix one scoop with 16-20 oz. of cold water. For best results, use in a shaker bottle with ice. Consume gradually throughout your workout or physical activity. Shake occasionally if needed.
Advanced users may choose to consume additional servings for intense or extended activities.

Just like you, we take pride in actively pursuing healthy lifestyles through balanced nutrition and fitness. Many of you can relate to this: Functional fitness training several times per week, eating a natural whole food based diet and, of course, taking supplements. You know who you are: Shopping in the special “Natural Food” section of the grocery store because everything else in the store is filled with stuff we wouldn't dare put into our bodies. You are the person constantly turning over ingredient labels to make sure that the company has not tucked some chemical or preservative into the mix. Many of you also know that searching for training supplements meeting the criteria of “all-natural”, “whole food based”, or “minimally processed” (a.k.a. not full of a bunch of junk you can't pronounce) is an even more difficult, almost unending journey; until now.
We formed Natural Force as the solution that bridges the gap between organic, natural food diets and the training supplement world.

So what are you waiting for?
Absolutely! You can drink the Iskiate Energy Formula anytime you need a stimulant-free boost!
Iskiate (IS-kee-ah-tay) is a traditional drink of the Tarahumara, also known as “Chia Fresca.” The Tarahumara are a tribe of native American people in Northern Mexico, also known as “the running people.” They mix chia seeds with sugar and lime juice in order to form “Iskiate”, which they drink as energy for their 200 mile plus runs! This product is inspired by their traditional drink, with a Natural Force spin!
Honestly, we don’t feel that we need to. Many of our competitors add ingredients to flavor their products which can be harmful to your health. We truly believe that adding flavorings to products of any kind is wrong. If you think about it, our taste buds exist as a defense mechanism for the body. If something tastes good, it is usually a good sign that it is a food that is okay for your body to consume. Things that taste bad usually tell us not to consume these things because they are bad for our bodies or may have some other negative effects. Without flavoring, our competitors’ products would undoubtedly taste horrible so we will leave you to come to your own conclusion.
We are one of the first companies to even source organic ingredients for a sports supplement. We are continually striving to improve our products, but there are some ingredients that just are not available organic. We are working towards having an organic certification, so look for it from us in the future.
