Spectrum Essentials Chia Seed Omega-3 and Fiber Description

  • Discover this Sacred Aztec Seed
  • Neutral Taste
  • 4g of Dietary Fiber
  • Higher in Antioxidant Activity than Blueberries
  • Rich in Essential Fatty Acids

Grown in Mexico, Chia was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The seed's nutrients provided sustained energy during long hunts and had numerous medicinal benefits. Revered by the people, Chia was often used in religious ceremonies which led to its ban by the Spanish during their conquest of the region.

Today it is known that Chia is a nutritional powerhouse with a lengthy list of essential fatty acids that support heart health, plus fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol.* Chia seeds are easily digestible and do not need to be ground. With its versatility and mild, nutty flavor, Chia is a beneficial addition to any diet.


Suggested serving: 1 tbsp daily. Add to yogurt, cereal, smoothies or salads; eat it whole or ground, raw or baked in goods. Seeds soaked in water form a gel that can be flavored and enjoyed as a snack. Add some seeds to a water bottle to help keep the body hydrated during exercise. Consult your healthcare practitioner for your individual needs.

Exceptional quality, great price and expedient delivery. I have been purchasing from VitaCost for a couple of years and have yet to be disappointed with anything I ordered/received. December 16, 2012
good but would be better if they were organic I love chia seeds, however, usually I try to buy them organic, which these ones are not. November 3, 2012
Chia is Chia Nothing particularly unique about Spectrum Chia other than it is a decent product that is consistantly high quality. It appears the Vitacost has been selling quite a bit of Chia as the product has been sold out and Vitacost brand Chia has been MIA for a while now. September 21, 2012
good seeds i buy these because of the price at vita cost September 6, 2012
Good Omega -3 The Chia seeds are pretty tasteless, but are a good way to get Omega-3. Great on yogurt. September 3, 2012
