Here in North Carolina we do things a little unconventional. Take for instance, Panther DE Thomas Keiser who eats Chia Pet seeds to stay hydrated. Yes, the seeds you have seen in the infamous commercial that grows grass at a face rate on those little heads, Keiser eats it.

“People ask me all the time if it’s the same stuff that’s in Chia Pets. It is,” Keiser said. “I’ll have probably two or three tablespoons in somewhere between two-thirds and a full gallon of water every day.”

Why isn’t he walking around looking like a green giant you ask?

“It helps hydrate you, because it absorbs 10 times its weight in water,” Keiser said. “And instead of the water just going in your system and flushing right out, it’s going to sit in you longer.”

Sounds logical. Plus he has a really cool reference as to why he does it.

“Most of the guys think I’m pretty weird for carrying that around,” Keiser said. “I just keep telling them it’s like Mike’s Magic Juice in Space Jam.”

If Carolina can get this bottled up with that Cammy Cam juice, we got some extra revenue coming into the team.

    chia seeds is good stuff. Good for regulating weight, blood sugar, high in antioxidants and a good source of omega 3, among other things..
