Uses

  • Chia Seeds contain the highest known proportion of Alpha-Linolenic Acid of any Seed. The Oil of Chia Seeds (Chia Seed Oil) contains 60% to 63% Alpha-Linolenic Acid. Chia Seeds are a type of seed, and are gluten free and are a good source of fibre. They are very small and are covered with a brown seed coating that is further covered by mucilage. Chia seeds come from the Salvia hispanica plant, related to the mint plant that is native to Southwestern North America, Mexico and Central America.
    Chia seed is a wholegrain food because it contains all components of the grain; the Bran, Germ and Endosperm. Research also shows that eating wholegrain foods can help lower the risk of being overweight and lower the risk of diet related disease such as diabetes and heart disease.  Chia is a great natural vegan source of complete protein (20% protein in each serve) with all 8 essential amino acids. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissue, hair and nails and must draw it from the diet as protein isn’t stored in the body.

    Chia seeds are considered a ‘superfood’ because they are a highly nutritious easily digestible wholefood. They can be eaten raw or sprouted, providing a concentrated source of protein, essential fatty acids and fibre.
  • As a ‘superfood’ chia seeds enhance energy and endurance.
  • Chia seeds supply high levels of omega 3, dietary fibre, full range of B vitamins including B17 (laetrile), and good levels of calcium, trace minerals and antioxidants. The high Omega 3 content promotes heart health & supports joint function & mobility.
  • The fibre content promotes digestive health, bowel regularity and balanced weight management.

  • Blood sugar issues
  • Weight loss
  • Constipation
  • High cholesterol
