Chia Seeds

Chia seeds for strength and health from Faithful to Nature


This tiny little superfood used by the Aztecs and Mayans over 3,000 years ago is just becoming well-known to the rest of us. 'Chia' is the ancient Mayan word for strength – and our organic chia seeds give you just that. These seeds are a quick and powerful energy-booster, source of protein, fiber, healthy fats, antioxidants, a wide variety of minerals, and vitamins. The Mayans also called them “running food” because a snack of these seeds gave running messengers the energy to run all day. More prized than even gold, they were considered to be important medicine.

For modern people, part of the beauty of chia seeds is that they are easy to use, so you can get a large dose of nutrition on the go. Add them to your smoothies, salad, cereal, jam, desserts, and wherever else you can. Chia seeds are famous for their omega 3 content – they contain more than any other plant source on the planet. 30% of a chia seed's oil is omega 3, and 40% is omega 6. The combination of these two oils is ideal for your health. Chia seeds also outshine any other seed or grain because they contain 2 times the amount of protein compared to other sources. Unlike flax seeds, they do not need to be ground prior to consumption. They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and are an excellent healthy product for cleansing the colon and improving blood sugar levels in diabetics.
