THREE REASONS WHY WE LOVE CHIA SEEDS!

In case you hadn't of guessed, we're pretty big fans of Chia Seeds. And with good reason too these tiny little seeds pack a huge nutritional punch, containing gram for gram vitamins, minerals and other good stuff than you'll find in almost another food. That's why all our bars, butters and bags is packed full of chiay goodnes (yes that is a word). 

THREE REASONS WHY WE LOVE CHIA SEEDS!

1. CHIA SEEDS ARE HIGH IN OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

Chia Seeds are super high in Omega-3s, which are awesomely good for you. They not only have been shown to help with everything from improving sleep, joint health to reducing the risk of heart disease and dementia.

There aren't very many foods that contain high levels of omega-3s and even  fewer that do so and are vegetarian friendly. But Chia Seeds are the exception containing 8 times more Omega three than a serving of Salmon the same size.

2. CHIA SEEDS ARE RICH IN FIBRE

Almost a third of the weight of Chia Seeds is fibre, which 

    1. Helps to keep your gut health in check.
    2. You stay full longer.
    3. Helps reduces your Type 2 Diabetes Risk.
    4. Lower Your Odds of Heart Disease.

3. CHIA SEEDS ARE LOADED WITH ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants are the stuff of myths, basically doing things that people didn't think were possible. Slowing down the signs of ageing, decreasing muscle soreness, leaving you with younger looking skin, healthier hair, and they can even lower your risk of cancer.
