About Chia
:

Optimal balance of Essential Fatty Acid (EFAs)
: Chia is the best source of omega 3 and omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids – provides the optimum 3:1 ratio. EFAs are known for their antidepressive effects and chia is full of them.

Easily Digestible: The shells are easily broken down, even when swallowed whole. There is no need to grind the seed in order to process them through the digestive tract (unlike flax seeds). This makes them easy to travel with and to eat early in the morning without waking up your household.

Hydrating for the Body: Chia is highly hydrophilic, meaning it absorbs large amounts of water – about 10 times their weight. As such they are a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies. The water we drink is absorbed by the seed holding it in our system longer. You stay hydrated longer, and retain electrolytes in your bodily fluids. Great for athletes.

Stabilizes Blood Sugar: Chia Seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. When mixed with water or stomach juices, the seeds form a gel that creates a physical barrier between the carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. The carbohydrates thereby are digested and converted into glucose (blood sugar) at a slow, uniform rate. There is no insulin surge or spike needed to lower the blood sugar level. This creates steady, stable blood glucose levels, also yielding steady, high energy levels.

Weight Control: Chia may help you lose excess weight, for two reasons. The first is that they are so filling that you will eat less of other foods. The second reason is that they actually bulk up and cleanse your body of old "junk" in your intestines. An excellent addition to a detox program.

Nutrient Dense: The nutritional value per volume is astounding, a little goes a long way. Chia Contains 20% or more protein which helps reduce cravings. Chia is also rich in the following: fiber, magnesium, calcium, essential fatty acids (especially ALA, a type of Omega 3 fatty acid), and antioxidants (unlike flax).

Mild tasting: Chia offer a mild nutty flavor and a pleasant crunch (when eaten dry) and creates a thickening hydrating gel when soaked or added to liquids.
