The Aztec Superseed
Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are the highest known plant source of Omega-3, with 8 times more than salmon! Unlike other sources of this important Essential Fatty Acid (eg. Flax or fish oil), it is in a highly stable form due to its powerful naturally occurring antioxidants. The plant originates from the central Americas, it is heat loving and can grow in virtually desert - like conditions, with beautiful purpley - blue or white flowers.
Chia is an easy way to add healthy nutrition to your daily diet, with Vitamins A, B12 and C, complete protein (18 Amino Acids), minerals including potassium, phosphorous, folate, zinc, iron, and calcium as well as bowel-regulating soluble and insoluble fibre.
- 7 x more Vitamin C than oranges
- 6 x more fibre than oat bran
- 5 x more calcium than milk
- 4 x higher ORAC value than blueberries
- 3 x more iron than spinach
- 2 x more potassium than bananas
- 1 hundred percent nutrition!
Sprinkle these flavourless seeds on salads, muesli, oatmeal, stirfrys, smoothies, muffin or bread batter, or cereal.
Optional: Use a spice/coffee grinder to make a fine meal-like consistency.
