Comments & Questions
MdM's top quality whole Chia Seed. A super food.
Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico.

Aztec and Mayan diets and were the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors. I've read that one tablespoon was believed to sustain an individual for 24 hours. The Aztecs also used chia medicinally to stimulate saliva flow and to relieve joint pain and sore skin.

Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds. And it has another advantage over flax: chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don't deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid. And, unlike flax, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body. Chia seeds also provide fiber (25 grams give you 6.9 grams of fiber) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.

Chia seeds are:

Chia Seeds Are Nutritious
On top of the fact that chia seeds have more omega-3 than any
other natural source, they are loaded with antioxidants, calcium,
protein, fiber, and many other vitamins & minerals.

Chia Seeds Are Energizing
Not only do chia seeds give you a boost of energy that lasts,
they also provide stamina and endurance. A single tablespoon
could sustain Aztec warriors for an entire day.

Chia Seeds Reduce Cravings
Because chia seeds absorb so much water and have high soluble
fiber levels, they help release natural, unrefined carbohydrate
energy slowly into the bloodstream.

Chia Seeds Are Easily Digestible
Unlike flax seed, chia seeds do not have to be ground up before
you ingest them. The human body can easily digest chia seeds,
and with about 7 grams of fiber per serving, they actually help.
