Spectrum Essentials Chia Seed Omega-3 And Fiber

Product Description

Dietary Supplement. Discover this sacred Aztec seed. Neutral taste. 4 g dietary fiber per serving. Higher in antioxidant activity than blueberries (ORAC testing for antioxidant activity showed Chia Seed at 119 per g versus 65 per g for blueberries). Rich in omega-3 (ALA) fatty acids. 2.4 g omega-3 per serving. Ready to use! The taste of goodness. What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. We believe that the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat, the planet we share and the people we work with every day. The wisdom of the ancients rediscovered. Grown in Mexico, chia seed was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The chia seed's nutrients provided sustained energy during long hunts and had numerous medical benefits. Revered by the people, chia seed was often used in religious ceremonies which led to its ban by the Spanish during their conquest of the region. Today we know that chia is a nutritional powerhouse with a lengthy list of benefits. It is a valuable source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol. Chia seeds are easily digestible and do not need to be ground. With its versatility and mild, nutty flavor, chia seed is a healthful addition to any diet. Gluten free. No preservatives.
