Ancient Seed • Powerful New Superfood
Fiber and Omega-3
Chia (pronounced chee'ah) is the richest and only unprocessed, whole good source of pure Omega3. A member of the mint family, Chia is native to Central America and has been used traditionally for over 3000 years. Ancient Aztec warriors prized Chia as an endurance promoting superfood, eating it in bread just before battle, and drinking it in water before running long distances.
Due to its high fiber content, Chia seed absorbs more than ten times its weight in water, making it an excellent source of hydration. Omega3 Chia's soluble fiber forms a gel that slows the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, binds it to toxins in the digestive system, and helps eliminate waste.
Omega 3 Chia is especially rich in essential fatty acids and high-ORAC antioxidants like quercetin, myrecetin, caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid. As a result, Omega 3 Chia seeds maintain a 99% sprout rate and have a shelf life of up to 5 years. Omega 3 Chia seeds are rich in Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, many trace minerals and biologically-complete protein, making it the perfect survival food. Omega 3 Chia is organically-grown and is naturally gluten and GMO free.
Simply mix one scoop (15 g) of Omega3 Chia seed with 12 oz. of lemonade, thin juice, or your favorite beverage. In a Greens Plus shaker cup or resealable bottle, shake periodically for a few minutes until the Chia seed becomes evenly suspended, then sip for a refreshing, performance-enhancing energy drink.
The unique texture of mixed Chia seed is a feature of its high fiber content and water binding capacity. For maximum benefit, drink at least 64 oz of pure water every day, Omega 3 Chia seed can be added to many foods, including cereal, soup, salad, yogurt, smoothies and baked goods. One tsp. of Chia seed mixed in 2 oz of water becomes the perfect egg substitute.
