La Tierra® Organic Premium Black Chia Seed (1lb) La Tierra®有機頂級黑奇亞籽(1磅)

Chia Seed, also known as Salvia Hispanica, is a superfood native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and it was used as a very important energy food in pre-columbian times.

Not only are they gluten/grain free naturally, but one tablespoon of chia seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more omega-3s than salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. Chia seeds are now used for their nutritional and medicinal properties, endurance for athletes, for suppressing the appetite, weight loss, levelling blood sugar, and for aiding intestinal regularity.

Direction of Use:
Apply directly to food or drinks; or soak in water for 10 min first, ideal for making pudding and special drinks.

Combat Diabetes
Chia is being studied as a potential natural treatment for type-2 diabetes because of its ability to slow down digestion. The gelatinous coating chia seeds develops when exposed to liquids-can also prevent blood sugar spikes.

Improve Heart Health
Chia seed improves blood pressure in diabetics, and may also increase healthy cholesterol while lowering total, LDL, and triglyceride cholesterol.

Weight Loss
Chia seeds are an appetite suppressant. Bulking up a meal with chia gel helps lessen the amount of food consumed as chia seed can absorb more than 12 times its weigh in water. Chia seeds can prolong hydration, helping retain moisture and regulate more efficiently the body’s absorption of nutrients, including electrolyte balance. It also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps regulate appetite, sleep and improve mood.

Get More Fibre
Just a 28g or one-ounce serving of chia has 11g of dietary fibre - about a third of the recommended daily intake for adults. Adding some chia to your diet is an easy way to make sure sufficient intake of fibre, which is important for digestive health.

Rich in Omega-3
Chia seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, with nearly 5g in a serving. These fats are important for brain health. There's better conversion of omega 3s into the plasma or into the food than with flax seed.

Pack In The Protein
Chia seeds also make a great source of protein for vegetarians and don't have any cholesterol. One serving has 4.4g of protein, nearly 10% of the daily value.

Stronger Teeth And Bones
A serving of chia seeds has 18% of the daily intake for calcium, 30% of manganese and 27% of phosphorus. All are essential minerals to maintain bone and oral health, and prevent osteoporosis. Manganese helps your body use other essential nutrients like biotin and thiamin, while phosphorus is used by the body to synthesise protein for cell and tissue growth and repair.
