Healtheries Black Chia Seeds

Product Overview

Why use Healtheries Black Chia Seeds?

Looking for an easy way to boost nutrition in your household? Healtheries Black Chia Seeds are tasty and incredibly versatile, nutritional powerhouses that can be easily added to cereals, salads, soups, stews, baking and smoothies. Just one tablespoon of these raw, nutrient- dense, super-seeds is packed with omega- 3 fatty acids, dietary fibre, calcium and magnesium - which is why we recommend adding one tablespoon per day to your diet.

Our bodies are unable to produce omega- 3 fatty acids so it is essential that these healthy fats are sourced from the diet. It is also important to include good food sources of dietary fibre to support bowel regularity. The minerals calcium and magnesium are needed to support the structure of teeth and bones - plus magnesium also plays an important role in normal nerve and muscle function.

It is said that in ancient times Mayan messengers ran vast distances through Central America consuming only Chia Seeds to keep their strength up. Today, the modern world is starting to rediscover these tiny yet powerful seeds and all the wonderful ways you can add them to your everyday diet.
