Alright, so there are basically two ways this thing works out. Carolina Panthers Defensive End Thomas Keiser is either the biggest moron of all time or this story is total bullshit.
“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.”
Keiser carries a gallon-sized water jug with seeds floating in it around camp. He says the benefits outweigh his teammate’s teasing.
“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.
I just hope that someday Keiser doesn’t mix a can of soda with some Pop Rocks or the poor dude’s head might explode.
