Chia (pronounced chee'ah) is the richest
and only unprocessed, whole good source
of pure Omega 3. 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. 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.
Chia is especially rich in essential fatty
acids and high-ORAC antioxidants like
quercetin, myrecetin, caffeic acid and
chlorogenic acid. As a result, Chia seeds
maintain a 99% sprout rate and have a
shelf life of up to 5 years. Chia seeds are
rich in Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron,
Zinc, many trace minerals and biologically-
complete protein, making it the perfect survival
food. Chia is certified kosher. Non-irradiated.
