Nature's Answer Chia Meal -- 12 oz

Rich in Omega-3. Natural High-ORAC Antioxidants. Vegetarian Sourced Essential Fatty Acids. High in Dietary Fiber. Heart Healthy Powder. Chia was cultivated by the ancient Aztecs and was honored as a "power food." Chia is one of the best plant sources of beneficial Omega-3 oils especially a-linoleic acid (ALA). Scientific Research on Omega-3 and other essential fatty acids (EFA) continues to prove that EFA's support cardiovascular health comfortable joint mobility immune system function and overall cellular energy. Chia is often stored for long periods of time as a Survival Food since it does not quickly turn rancid like other sources of essential fatty acids. Chia is high in vitamins and minerals such as magnesium potassium and phosphorus. It contains many antioxidants including significant levels of caffeic acids quercetin and flavonols. Chia is an excellent source of high molecular weight soluble fiber which supports healthy bowel function. When Chia is mixed into a liquid it forms a thick mass due to its high content of beneficial mucilages. This slows the digestion of carbohydrates in the digestive system leading to a feeling of fullness and reduces the spike in blood sugar that often accompanies the ingestion of carbohydrates.  . Chia meal is 100% vegetarian gluten-free Non-GMO and is produced without the use of pesticides.

"I bought the Chia meal because the seeds were sold out at the time, and I'm glad for the chance to try them. The meal seems that it would be much easier to digest, and you don't have the seeds stuck in your teeth every time you eat them. I am allergic to fish so the Chia meal is a great way for me to still get my Omegas."

best Chia product

"I mix the Chia meal with a whey protein drink. It does not affect the taste and gives me instant energy. I also mix it with a greens drink in the morning and it works better than coffee. For any drink mix, use the Chia meal not the seeds"
