    Description

    Chia (Salvia hispania L) is a herb that flourishes in South America. Its seed has been part of local diets for centuries. Indeed, Chia is believed to have been a staple food of the Aztecs, who regarded it as an aid to mental acuity, physical endurance and wellbeing. It remains in common use in southern Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seed provides abundant Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, in an optimum ratio. It also provides protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

    Chia's profile of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids is presented in what we now know to be an ideal ratio. There are many modern foods that contain Omega oils, but many of these give them in a ratio skewed in favour of Omega-6. Chia's vitamin content is significant, too. It contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2 , Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E. Chia's mineral provision includes Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc.

    9% of Chia's volume is high-quality protein. Chia is a versatile food, neutral in flavour. It can be added to a variety of cooked or raw dishes and helps dieters feel full, as it takes on water once ingested.

    A note about themselves:

    "Rainforest Foods is a company with one aim: to bring you the finest of nature's foods. We manufacture them in the form of dietary supplements for one fundamental reason: because while relatively few people live near the rainforests, mountains or islands where many superfoods grow, very many people live modern lives where balanced meals at regular intervals are not always possible.

    We search the globe for foods with unusually high nutritional value, which we process and bring to you in easily managed forms such as capsules, tablets and powder. Superfood supplements can help us balance and support modern diets."
