Natureís Perfect Food: Gram for gram, chia seeds are a superior
source of many nutrients without the worry of contamination, allergies,
and sodium. Their mild, nuttty flavor and versatility makes them
perfectly suited for modern day life and a healthy addition to all diets.
Superior Source of Omega-3ís
No toxins, heavy metals, or fillers: Unlike fish oils, Chia does not
contain harmful toxins or fillers.
Low allergy risk: Allergic reactions to fish are among one of the most
common food allergies in children and adults.
No processing required: Unlike flax seeds, which need to be ground
to realize their full benefit, chia seeds do not need to be ground.
Shelf stable: Antioxidants in the seed protect the oils from going
rancid, allowing for a shelf stable product. Flax oil and fish oil are
highly prone to oxidation, and must be kept in a dark container in the
refrigerator and must be consumed within a few months of opening.
Less sodium: Chia seeds contain 1.8, 2.6, 3.5 and 163 times less
sodium per 100 grams of an edible portion than flaxseeds, canned
tuna in water, pink salmon, and algae.
Perfect Ratio of Omega-3 & Omega-6:
Chia seeds provide the highest amounts of vegetarian Omega-3ís,
and offer an ideal Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio of 3:1. These
essential fatty acids may promote cardiovascular and neurological
health, brain development and functioning, aid in skin repair, and may
help in maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood glucose levels.*
High Quality Protein
Chia seeds are a great vegetarian source of high quality protein
containing all essential amino acids. They are perfect for vegetarians
and people missing protein in their diets. This protein is more easily
absorbed and digested than animal derived proteins.*
Richest Whole Food Source of Fiber
Just one serving of our seeds provides 20% of the daily recommended
intake of fiber. Chia contains both insoluble and soluble fiber, which may
assist in helping to maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood glucose
levels as well as aid with digestion, detoxification, and weight loss.*
