Omega 3 Chia Raw Seed Description from Greens Plus
Chia (also known as Salvia Hispanica) is the richest and only unprocessed, whole food source of pure Omega3. Due to its high fiber content (more than 35%) Chia seeds have the remarkable ability to absorb ten times their weight in water, making it an excellent source of hydration. The fibers in Chia form a gel that slows the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, binds it to toxins in the digestive system, and helps eliminate waste.
Greens Plus Organic Chia Seeds are:
-100% Certified Organic
-Excellent source of hydration
-Rich in Omega3's
-High in protein and antioxidants
-Balance blood sugar levels
Chia is especially rich in essential fatty acids. One 15gm serving provides more than 3 g of Omega 3 (as alpha-linolenic acid) and 1 g of Omega 6 (linoleic acid) in a perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio. Several studies indicate a 3:1 ratio to be ideal, so always look for this.
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 on foot. Mixed in lemonade or fruit juice (known as chia fresca) Omega3 Chia seed quickly becomes a refreshing, performance-enhancing energy drink.
