Grown in Mexico, Chia was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The seed's nutrients provided a source of 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 health benefits.* It is a valuable source of Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA), an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and maintain lipid levels already within the normal range.* 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.


Directions

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 (9:1 ratio) 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.
