Description

Originally grown in South America, Chia seeds were first used as food as early as 3500 BC and were one of the main dietary components of the Aztecs and the Mayans. Chia grows best 15 degrees from the equator and today is grown on this latitude in Australia and South America.

Increase FIBRE in their diet
Chia contains 36% fibre of which 80% is insoluble and 20% soluble. Consuming fibre helps to lower cholesterol in the body, aids intestinal health, including regular gut function and can reduce the risk and occurrence of colon cancer. A high fibre diet has shown to improve blood sugar control and may help to assist some people with their diabetes management.

Maintain their HEART HEALTH
Chia Seed contains 20% Omega 3. Chia Oil, is a more concentrated source providing 60% Omega 3. The Omega 3 ALA found in Chia is especially important for a healthy heart and research has shown it can be beneficial for lowering cholesterol, maintaining artery function and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. The heart foundation recommends a daily intake of 2g of Omega 3 ALA as opposed to Omega 3 DHA (found in fish oil) which should be consumed twice a week.

Diabetics
Including chia in the diet has a positive impact on the blood glucose control of Type 2 Diabetes patients. A recent case study by accredited and practicing dietician Emma Morris of Stay Tuned Sports Medicine showed that ¡§The inclusion of 1 tablespoon of chia seeds in the daily diet of diet-controlled Type 2 Diabetics, assisted in the reduction of their morning blood glucose levels and blood glucose levels 2 hours post-dinner¡¨.

Manage their WEIGHT
Chia Seed has the effect of thickening or bulking up food and therefore can give you a full sensation when you add it to food. This can result in you taking in fewer calories over the day and assist with weight loss. Chia also provides a slow release of energy which can sustain you for longer.

HEALTHY SKIN, HAIR and NAILS
Chia contains a high source of Omega 6 LA, antioxidants and protein which are all important for healthy skin. Studies have shown a diet containing antioxidants can slow the process of aging in the body. Hair and nails are also mostly made of protein. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissues and needs relatively large amounts of protein and must draw on it from the diet as protein isn't stored in the body. Chia is a great natural source of protein since it contains 20% protein in each serve.

Increase ENERGY LEVELS 
Chia provides a sustained release of energy into the body. Many of our consumers are athletes who eat Chia to improve endurance and aid joint mobility and muscle repair.

How to Eat

Mix with water to form a thick gel and blend into smoothies. Add to bread and muffin recipes. And 15g Chia Seed can provides all your daily requirement of Omega 3 ALA.
