Buy Organic Chia Seeds Online

Organic chia seeds are being hailed as the new wonderfood, and if you would like to try them, you can buy them online here.

Food of the Aztecs, chia seeds have been re-discovered by modern America and the rush is on to buy them for their health benefits.

Harvested from the plant Salvia hispanica, which is now grown commercially in many South American countries, many wild and unsubstantiated claims have been made about chia seeds.

What I can say for it, is that it is choc-full of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and a lack of those fatty acids in our diets has been the fundamental cause of many illness and conditions including heart disease, obesity, cancers and mental health problems.

One very real advantage of chia seeds is that they bulk out your body, giving you a feeling of fullness. Each seed can absorb over 10 times its body weight in water, and placing a few seeds into a liquid solution quickly forms a gel.

When we eat chia seeds, they form a gel inside our stomachs, giving us a feeling of fullness.

This is great for helping us to lose weight, as our appetites are suppressed and our cravings for sugary foods are reduced.

Easily digestible and tasty, chia seeds really do make a superfood in many ways. they are so convenient too - simply pop a few seeds into your mouth as a snack and you will be feeling full up for hours.

We are reading wild claims that they are full of vitamins and antioxidants, none of which seems to be substantiated. There are no vitamins in chia seeds.

As you can see however, they are full of minerals, many of which our diets are sadly lacking in, even though we actually do need a tiny amount of every day.

Minerals help our bodies absorb other minerals and vitamins. If we are short of minerals, no amount of antioxidants or vitamins in our foods will actually do any good, if our bodies can't absorb them.

This is an interesting hub. I read about chia (which I had only known about from the infamous Chia Pet) in the book "Born to Run." Maybe I should buy a Chia Pet after all, lol!

I'd love to get hold of some seeds. I need an energy boost as well as losing some excess lbs. I don't know what a chia pet is, guess I'll have to go look it up!
