CHIA

Chia seeds are amazing. They are one of our favorite superfood that you can eat every day to add nutritional support and health benefits to your SuperLife.

Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language. Aztec warriors were known to use chia seeds to give them high energy and endurance, especially during battles. It has been reported just 1 spoonful of chia could sustain a runner for 24 hours.

All our chia seeds are cleaned, selected, and packed according to our client’s request.

Descripción

SCIENTIFIC NAME : SALVIA HISPANICA

Chia seeds contain many different phytochemicals, which provide unique benefits such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties. It is a “complete protein” – which means that it contains all nine essential amino acids, which is incredibly rare for a plant-based source of protein. It also has a high concentration of the omega-3 essential fatty acids which play a role in heart health, the health of your cellular and artery walls, and more.

Finally, Chia is about 37% fiber! That’s incredible. Around 20% is soluble fiber and 80% is insoluble fiber. You need them both for a healthy digestive tract, heart health, and blood sugar control.

Before eating chia, we highly recommend that you soak them! Soaking chia seeds “sprouts” them and breaks down “enzyme inhibitors” that protect the seeds:

Add 5 tbsp. chia seeds to distilled water in a glass pitcher or jar. Shake once, let sit for one minute, shake again, and put in the refrigerator. Use after 8-12 hours, when it has taken on a gel-like consistency. It will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
