Chia seeds may have been used as a food source as far back as 3500 B.C. but it was the Aztecs who first used chia as a "superfood" in the 14th century.
Aztec warriors are believed to have sustained themselves for an entire day by eating chia seeds.
After the Spanish conquest, chia seed almost vanished as the Spaniards banned all foods linked to Aztec religion or tradition.
The word chia is derived from the Aztec word chian, which means oily.
Chia seeds are the world's richest natural source of Omega-3 and contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than any other known natural source on the planet.
Chia seeds average 19-23% complete protein and contain all nine amino acids essential to humans in proper ratios to form a complete protein.
Chia has more protein than flax, wheat, rice, corn, barley, or oats.
DHA is an important structural component of the nerve cells in the brain and eyes and a key component of heart tissue. DHA helps support the healthy development and function of cells in the brain, retina, and heart throughout the human lifecycle.
Both DHA and EPA play a role in cardiovascular health and are among the omega-3 fats recommended by the American Heart Association for maintaining good cardiovascular health.
CoQ10 is found in all human cells, with the highest concentrations in the heart, liver, and kidneys.
The Essential Formulas Story
Essential Formulas Incorporated’s President and CEO Michael Schoor learned about Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic formula while traveling through Malaysia in 1997. During a stop in Kuala Lumpur, Michael experienced serious digestive discomfort after eating some local cuisine. Finding himself without his usual medicines from home, he consulted a local doctor who recommended a probiotic product from Japan known as OM-X (Ohhira’s Mountain Extract).
These probiotic capsules provided quick relief and worked more effectively than any remedies Michael had ever used, and with no negative side effects. Michael was so impressed that he decided to learn more about the ‘little brown capsules’ that had eliminated his extreme digestive troubles. His research ultimately led him to Japan where he met the formulator of the capsules, Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, one of Japan’s leading microbiologists.
Dr. Ohhira explained why his digestive health formula is so effective. Supported by twenty-five years of university-based scientific studies, the capsules contained not only live probiotics, but also prebiotics (substances that nourish probiotics) and organic acids that promote a healthy digestive tract pH. Michael was not only impressed but determined to share Dr. Ohhira’s formula with others.
In late 1999, the two men reached an agreement that established Michael’s soon-to-be-formed company as the sole North American distributor of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic products and dietary supplements. Essential Formulas Incorporated (EFI) was established in 2000 to bring Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics to the United States.
Since then, EFI has expanded its product line. In addition to Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics, customers also enjoy the immune system support of Propolis PLUS; Essential Living Oils, a vegan certified fish oil alternative; and a growing line of probiotic skin care products.
Over the years other lines of supplements have been considered for distribution by EFI, but none ever met the company’s strict criteria of proven benefits backed by solid research. EFI vowed it would only add products that had the same high level of quality that Dr. Ohhira’s Formulations possessed.
In 2012 Michael was approached to help launch a new line of equally innovative products intended to enhance the consumer’s heart/brain health and self-care strategy. After much due diligence, it was decided that these inventive products would join the EFI family of dietary supplements.
The CHIA OMEGA formulations of essential fatty acid dietary supplements is a vegan alternative to fish oil products, which is derived from high-protein Chia seeds. Chia seeds are documented to offer more ALA Omega-3 than fish oil or flax seed oil and are considered to be one of the planet’s richest and most sustainable sources of this essential fatty acid (EFA).
Each of EFI’s CHIA OMEGA products will be encapsulated in a totally vegan capsule. These products include: CHIA OMEGA + CoQ10, CHIA OMEGA + Vitamin D3 (vegetarian, not vegan), CHIA OMEGA + Enzymes, and CHIA OMEGA + EPA & DHA. Each of EFI’s CHIA OMEGA products are encapsulated in a totally vegan capsule.
