Chia for Health


Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant, Salvia hispanica,  that grows abundantly in southern Mexico.

Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds.

Researchers suggest that chia forms into a gelatinous texture when in the stomach, slowing the process by which digestive enzymes break down carbohydrates and convert them into sugar. Therefore; you will be feeling fuller, longer.

Because of its nutritional value and stability, chia is already being added to a range of foods. Research has shown that adding it to chicken feed makes for eggs rich in omega-3s. Feeding chia to chickens enriches their meat with omega-3s; fed to cattle chia enriches milk with omega-3s. Chia can also be added to commercially prepared infant formulas, baby foods, baked goods, nutrition bars, yogurt, and other foods. Another bonus: insects don’t like the chia plant so it is easier to find organically grown varieties.
