High In Omega 3
Chia seeds are one of the highest natural sources of Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s help reduce inflammation, aid in blood sugar regulation and can prevent heart disease, arthritis and cancer.
High In Fibre
They are a great source of fibre; in fact, one serving contains 41% of your daily fibre.
Packed With Protein
Protein is an essential component of a healthy diet. Chia seeds are packed with protein; in fact, they contain twice the amount of protein of any other seed or grain.
Chia seeds put the V in versatile. Sprinkle them on your salad or toss them in your smoothie. Add them to baking, boost your breakfast or savour a chia pudding. However you consume them - they are a quick and convenient way to get your daily source of Omega 3’s and increase your fibre and protein intake.
Vegan-friendly, gluten-free and easily digestible - these humble seeds definitely punch above their weight.
