Chia is known as an ancient superfood of the Aztecs and Mayans, with over 3000 years of history as an ancient revered crop. Health Connection Chia Seeds have a mild, pleasant taste and spectacular nutritional profile. An energy-boosting, anti-ageing superfood that's easy to digest and absorb, providing essential protein, fats and carbohydrates, as well as a wide array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Chia seeds are the richest plant source of Omega-3 - the vital fats that protect against inflammation, such as arthritis, and heart disease. Surprisingly, they actually contain more Omega-3 than salmon.

Description

Seeds are by their nature high in energy and fibre. Chia is known as an ancient superfood of the Aztecs. These chia seeds have a mild, pleasant taste and can be used as an energy, fibre and omega-3 fatty acid supplement.

  • Chia is one of the highest plant based omega-3 sources outperforming even flax seeds. The excellent ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 of 3:2 makes it a great anti-inflammatory food.
  • The soluble rich fibre gel in Chia soothes the digestive system and slows the release of sugars into the bloodstream stabilising blood sugar levels.
  • Chia is known as a dieters dream food as it bulks up meals with low calorie nutrient density without altering flavour.
  • The combination of essential fats, fibre and protein make Chia an excellent food for improving endurance and fitness. It also has the ability to help keep the body hydrated and electrolytes balanced.
  • The potent antioxidants in Chia naturally preserve the sensitive Omega-3 oils and provide anti-aging benefits.

Directions

Use whole or ground and add to smoothies, salads, cereal, yoghurt and stews. Can also be mixed with water or juice and taken as a gel. Alternatively use in baking bread, muffins and biscuits.

Perfect for thickening smoothies.

Great product, I have a teaspoon with my oats in the mornings. I also put a teaspoon full in water, leave it for 20mins and drink as I go. Keeps me fuller for longer.

Bought these little superfood seeds for my little dude's milkshakes and smoothies to add the omega 3's he needs, he doesn't mind them at all and actually likes to make a bit of "pudding" dessert :)

Lasts a lifetime but it doesn't make smoothies any thicker like it claims to. Great to add to greek yogurt with honey.

I bought these specifically to add to my dog's meals but have ended up putting them in our smoothies etc too. We love them and the bag lasts a long time!

Love to use these with raw oats and other seeds, mixed with yogurt. It's like granola without the sugar and guilt

I haven't really bought chia seeds before but so far they have been nice mixed into yogurt.
