MASSES OF MINERALS
High amounts of Manganese, Magnesium, Calcium and more.
HIGH IN OMEGA 3
A fantastic plant-based source of ALA Omega 3 fatty acids.
Inflammation is the root cause of many common modern diseases.
LOTS OF IRON
Diets low in iron risk fatigue, anemia and low immunity.
SUSTAINABLE & RAW ORGANIC CHIA SEEDS
Recent third-party analysis has found our Chia to have one of the highest levels of ALA Omega 3 fatty acids and polyphenols from any brand. Our organic chia seeds are raw and have not been irradiated or processed, leaving their high nutritional content intact. They are also certified organic so you know they are free of any pesticides or herbicides.
HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
The seeds are high in essential fatty acids and offer eight times more concentrated Omega-3 than salmon. Not naturally produced by the body, it’s important to eat foods rich in Omega-3 to enjoy a wide variety of health benefits. Omega-3 lowers cholesterol, relieves high blood pressure, helps to improve memory function, and has been shown to protect against depression.
Research published in the Journal of the American Oil Chemists Society found ‘potent antioxidant activity’ and high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acid (a good fat that has been proven to lower cholesterol) in chia seeds (Taga, Miller, Pratt. 1984 – full journal article).
Chia seeds contain high amounts of protein (with Black chia seeds containing more protein than white), a crucial element of any healthy diet that helps to build muscle and regenerate cells. Many vegetarians and vegans have embraced the seed as an alternative meat and dairy-free source of protein, especially given it’s complete amino acid profile. A full range of amino acids are found in its protein content, making the chia seed a better choice than many other types of plant-based protein.
Our Chia Seeds are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids which help your body to reduce inflammation.
INCREDIBLY RICH IN IRON
Iron is incredibly important to our lives, as anyone who is low on iron will tell you. We need it to carry blood around the body, to take oxygen to the brain and from proper muscle function. Diets low in iron risk fatigue, anemia and low immunity.
Research published in the Journal of Food Science found Chia Seeds to be incredibly high in iron. 6x more iron than Spinach and 2.4x more iron than beef liver (Bushway, Belyea, Bushway. 2006 – full journal article)
RICH IN NUTRIENTS
Chia seeds have fifteen more times the magnesium of fresh broccoli, five times more calcium than milk and three times more iron than milk. Magnesium relaxes the nervous system, aids in muscle production and, especially in combination with calcium, helps to strengthen and maintain healthy bones.
Chia seeds also contain varying amounts of potassium, zinc, phosphorus and copper. Vitamins A, B12 and C are also present providing a boost to the body’s immunity system.
“Spectrochemical analysis showed the presence of eleven elements with calcium, potassium, and phosphorus being the most prominent.” (Bushway, Belyea, Bushway. 2006 – full journal article).
BALANCES BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS
The body needs to keep blood glucose levels within a very narrow range in order for us to survive. It does this by using insulin and glucagon.
A journal article published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that the onset of insulin resistance and dyslipidaemia (a major cause of heart disease) was prevented by giving the rats used in the study Chia. The researchers concluded that Chia seeds have a beneficial impact upon glucose homeostasis (Chicco, D’Alessandro et al. 2009 – full journal article).
HOW TO CONSUME
Start with one teaspoon and work up to two teaspoons (15 grams) gradually. Add to your favourite smoothie or juice or even a glass of water.
Chia Seeds can be prinkled on salads, muesli or yoghurt for a healthy topping, or made into a delicious (and super filling) Chia Pudding.
