Omega-3 Chia Seeds by Greens Plus
Chia (pronounced chee’ah), is the richest and only unprocessed, whole food source of pure Omega3. A member of the mint family, Chia is native to Central America and has been used traditionally for over 3000 years. Ancients Aztec warriors prized Chia as an endurance promoting Superfood, eating it in bread just before battle and drinking it in water before funning long distances.
Due to it’s high fiber content, Chia seed absorbs up to ten times its weight in water, making it an excellent source of hydration. Omega3 Chia’s soluble fiber forms a gel that slows the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, binds it to toxins in the digestive system, and helps eliminate waste.
Omega3 Chia is especially rich in essential fatty acids and high-ORAC antioxidants like quercetin, caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid. As a result, Omega3 Chia seed maintain a 99% sprout rate and have a shelf life of up to 5 years.
Simply mix one scoop (15g) of Omega3 Chia seed with 8 oz. of lemonade, thin juice, or your favorite beverage. In a Greens Plus shaker cup or resalable bottle, shake periodically for a few minutes until the Chia seed becomes evenly suspended, then sip for a refreshing performance-enhancing energy drink.
The unique texture of mixed Chia seed is a feature of it's high fiber content and water binding capacity. For maximum benefit, drink at least 64 oz. of pure water every day. Omega3 Chia seed can be added to many foods including cereal, soup, salad, yogurt, smoothies and baked goods. One tsp. of Chia mixed in 2 oz. of water becomes the perfect egg substitute.
