Chia Helps You Grow*

MINI BUT MIGHTY*

Chia is a stellar superfood. It's packed with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids (which may help support health) and antioxidants (which may help reduce free radical damage).* Use chia anywhere, anytime, in a shake or traditional recipe. Chia contains phosphorus, manganese, calcium, potassium, zinc, copper, iron and sodium. It has six times more iron per serving than spinach. Chia has more Omega-3 alpha linolenic-acid than any other plant – even more than flaxseed! It also contains all 8 essential amino acids.

As a whole seed, you can add it to nutritious drinks bars, smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal, sauces or lap it straight off the spoon. If you grind it up, you can use chia in just about any baked goods, including muffins, flours, biscuits, cakes, waffles, breads, etc. The oil extract from the seed can be added to any foods. All three forms pack the punch only a superfood supplement provides.*

Ch-ch-ch-chia!

MULTIVITAMIN SEED*

Whatever your fitness goal, chia seed can help!*

There are more vitamins, healthy fats and fiber in a chia seed than even seem possible! Chia has enough protein that some vegetarians use it to replace eggs. One ounce of chia gives you 42 percent of the fiber you need daily (on a 2,000 calorie diet), and five percent of that fiber is soluble.*

Because chia is so nutrient-rich, it is best used to help promote and support overall health.* The protein in chia can help you build muscle, the fiber can help you feel full, and the healthy fats may promote heart health and cognitive function.*

Chia seeds can absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a gel, which takes up space in the belly and may help you feel full.* Chia contains less than half the sodium of flax. Chia has more antioxidants than blueberries, including chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.*

Stacking and storing!

STAYING POWER

As a dietary supplement, chia can be stacked with general health supplements like a multivitamin and fish oil, as well as sports nutrition supplements like protein, creatine, stimulants, etc.*

Insects avoid the chia plants, which means almost all can be harvested without chemicals or insecticides. Organic chia seeds are easy to find. An abundance of antioxidants helps chia stay fresh for long periods of time (24-36 months) when kept cool and dry, so you can buy a large bag and make it last without chemicals or preservatives.
