Description

The Mighty Chia Seed
Chia seeds were first harvested over 3,000 years ago by the ancient Mayan, Inca and Aztec empires. Warriors used this tiny superfood during times of conquest to improve stamina and endurance. Raw, gluten-free, organic, vegan, nut-free and grain-free, these seeds make the perfect addition to any modern-day diet.


Key Highlights of Viva Labs Organic Chia Seeds


Omega 3's:
Chia seeds contain one of the highest concentrations of ALA, preserved by naturally-present cinnamic acids, known to extend shelf life and delay the effects of oxidation. Studies indicate omega-3's help to reduce inflammation and improve cardiovascular health. Viva Labs Organic Chia Seeds contain 2,440mg of omega-3's per serving.


Fiber:
Fiber has been shown to promote regularity, maintain blood sugar and promote a satiety effect. Viva Labs Organic Chia Seeds contain 4g of fiber per serving, making it an excellent all-natural thickener and binder in all of your favourite recipes.


Suggested Uses for Viva Labs Organic Chia Seeds
Chia seeds can be used as a binder in virtually any recipe because of its gel-forming ability, or can simply be sprinkled over your favourite smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt and salads. Add 1-2 tablespoons per day to amplify the nutritional integrity of your favourite dishes.


The Viva Labs Difference
Chia seeds, derived from the purple flowers of the plant Salva hispanica, are sustainably grown in the mineral-rich soil regions of South America. Once the flowers have fully matured, they are thoroughly threshed and cleaned, yielding seeds of exquisite taste and nutritional substance. Viva Labs selectively chooses prime quality chia seeds, supplying higher concentrations of inflammation-reducing omega-3. Viva Labs Organic Chia Seeds are sourced directly from farmers in compliance with fair trade practices and are certified organic.
