Chia Seed

Dr. Weil on Chia Seed:

"Unlike flaxseed, chia seeds can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid and don't require grinding (whole flaxseed is tough to digest). Chia provides fiber (about 2 tablespoons--25 g--give you 7 g of fiber) as well as other important nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, niacin, and zinc.

Very few formal studies have looked at chia's benefits, although I expect that more will soon. In a preliminary study from the University of Toronto, researchers fed 21 diabetics either a supplement made from chia or grains with similar fiber content. After 3 months, blood pressure in patients taking chia dropped (10 points diastolic, 5 points systolic) while the grain group's BP remained steady.

I enjoy the seeds' nutlike flavor and consider them to be a healthful and interesting addition to my diet. You can sprinkle ground or whole chia seeds on cereal, yogurt, or salads; eat a handful of whole seeds as a snack; or grind them up and mix with flour when making muffins or other baked goods.

Or make your own "chia fresca," a drink popular in Mexico and Central America: Stir 2 teaspoons of the seeds into 8 to 10 ounces of water (you'll end up with a slightly gelatinous liquid). Add lime or lemon juice and sugar to taste, and enjoy.

My prediction? You will begin to see chia being added to more and more commercial products, such as prepared baby foods, nutrition bars, and baked goods."

3 Reasons to Eat Chia Seeds

Our philosophy at Green Grown Products is to be part of a new movement of super nutrition for people to make much better choices to enhance their lives. Super nutrition is excellent for one's health and spirit. People are becoming aware that eating healthy is essential for themselves, their children and their pets lives. Our soil and our air has been compromised, therefore we believe that super nutrients are what we need to restore our bodies and our brains.

Chia PlantOmegas are the golden keys to all of this super nourishment -- chia seeds are truly a wonder food for the near future. In 1971, when Hal began his mission, health food was something that few people cared about, but that is changing. Now, Hal and Teri are here with the same mission, to make products that give people one of the greatest gifts of life...and that is health!

Chia is an oil seed, different from comparable oil plants in its fat content: two-thirds of Chia oil are Omega-3 essential fatty acids (polyunsaturated) while only 10% are saturated fatty acids. Because Omega-3 sources are becoming increasingly scarce in the world, we need to turn our attention to Chia. In addition to its extremely high Omega-3 content, Chia has other components that makes it attractive for human nutrition: antioxidants, fiber, vitamins B1, B2, B3, plus minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper. Chia seed is considered a “dietary supplement” by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA). Furthermore, its nutritional content complies with the strict regulations required by this organization to qualify as a “healthy food”.

Hydrophilic Structural Integrity Of Chia Seed

Chia seed’s unique hydrophilic integrity has the ability to hold more than 14 times its weight in water. This ensures extended hydration and electrolyte balance as the seeds hold the water throughout the digestive processes. Its structural integrity slows digestion, supporting healthy blood sugar levels naturally (especially beneficial for type-II diabetics) while creating a more efficient assimilation of foods, increasing nutrient up-take and absorption and utilization by the body. The structural integrity acts to disarm irritation associated with taking supplements or medications that most people experience.

It has also been shown to lesson or eliminate irritations caused from spicy food, sauces and dips. Indigestion, heartburn and intestinal gas are all neutralized within a few minutes of taking the Chia seed gel, for most people. The excess stomach acids are absorbed and neutralized without harmful side effects while continuing to support the digestive processes.

Most over the counter digestive aids, although helpful by diminishing symptoms, they also diminish or stop the body’s ability to digest the undigested foods remaining causing serious long term side effects from those food remnants traveling through the upper and lower digestive track. Taking 2 or 3 TBS of Chia seed gel before or with each meal significantly supports healthy digestion and healthy elimination.

The magnified “Chia Seed Gel” (water-soaked chia seed) seen here at a 9:1 water to seed ratio by weight, shows how the seeds hold the water with their gelatinous fibers.

Health Fact: Just 5% loss of body fluid results in precipitant symptoms; elevated heart rate; weakness; fatigue and confusion
