Healtheries Ground Chia Seeds

Product Overview

Why use Healtheries Ground Chia Seeds?

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 the nutritional powerhouses that lie within these tiny seeds. Just one tablespoon of Healtheries Ground Chia Seeds contains a powerful combination of Omega 3 fatty acids, dietary fibre and essential minerals, including magnesium and calcium.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to source from the diet because our bodies are unable to produce this healthy fat. 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.

These super-seeds are tasty and versatile making it easy to include the recommended daily intake of one tablespoon into your everyday diet. Chia seeds make a fabulous, nutritious addition to breakfast cereals, smoothies and other drinks, and can also be tossed through salads, or used to thicken soups or stews. Ground Chia Seeds are especially easy to sneak into meals and recipes for extra nutrition and can also be made into delicious power-packed breakfast or dessert puddings.
