Chia Seeds

“Chi-Chi-Chia Chia!”

Yes, these are the infamous seeds you saw on TV in the 90’s, but these itty-bitty black and white seeds do so much more than grow into cute animal plants. Think of them as a one-stop shop for nutrition -- a goliath of health!

Need a boost in Omega-3’s? Looking to lose weight? How about some natural fiber, or maybe you need some strength or endurance. This Aztec superfood should be the backbone of every healthy diet.

Nutritional Information

Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds. And it has another advantage over flax: chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don't deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid. And, unlike flax, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body. Chia seeds also provide fiber (25 grams give you 6.9 grams of fiber) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.
