Organic Whole Food Nutrition Seed

Feature summary

The tiny black and white seeds of the Salvia hispanica plant, known as Chia, pack a BIG nutritional punch. Sometimes called nature’s most perfect food, Chia seeds contain concentrated essential fatty acids, protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals and antioxidants.

Chia is the Mayan word for strength and these seeds were a high-energy food of ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures. ChiaFactors from Natural Factors blends non-GMO and gluten-free black and white chia seeds, certified by Nutritional Science Research Instititute (NSRI) for their high quality.

Chia seeds are cholesterol-free and rich in heart healthy oils – omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in a 3:2 ratio – and other fatty acids. These healthy fats keep cell membranes flexible, allow nutrients to flow into the cells, and improve regulatory processes in every cell.

Omega-3s also support the brain, cardiovascular, and nervous systems, and immune health. Chia seeds are a complete source of vegetarian protein, 2 g of easily digestible protein in each tablespoon (1 scoop). Plus, each tablespoon of ChiaFactors provides about 70 mg of calcium, 35 mg of magnesium, 6 mg of vitamin C and 2.9 mg of iron. Getting more fibre is easy with ChiaFactors. Two tablespoons provide about 10 g of fibre to improve regularity and reduce colon cancer risk. Dietary fibre improves GI health, glucose levels and insulin response, cholesterol and triglycerides, high blood pressure, and other heart disease risk factors.

Loaded with antioxidants, Chia seeds can be stored for long periods of time without becoming rancid. Each tablespoon provides an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of approximately 960.

Chia seeds love water, absorbing many times their weight in water to form a gel in the digestive tract. This slows carbohydrate release and helps maintain uniform blood sugar levels. As the seeds absorb water and swell, they gently cleanse the colon, detoxify and reduce hunger.

The versatility of ChiaFactors makes it easy to “energize” meals. Add ChiaFactors to your favourite food or beverage. ChiaFactors can be eaten straight out of the container or added to hot and cold cereals, yogurt, fruit, salad, soups, sauces, smoothies, or green drinks. Add ChiaFactors to your favourite recipes such as pancakes, breads, cookies or muffins, for improved taste and nutrition. ChiaFactors has a pleasant, nutty flavor and adds volume and texture without adding many calories.
