    Chia seeds are a very rich source of omega-3 EFA.

    Chia seeds contain oil amounts varying between 32-39%, with the oil offering the highest natural percentage of Omega-3 essential fatty acid known to man (60-64%) whereas soybean oil and canola oil contain less than 10% of this essential omega-3 fatty acid.

    Chia seeds also are rich in the beneficial long-chain triglycerides that help maintain the proper wall flexibility of cells and restore the proper cholesterol /triglyceride ratio. Your body converts the alpha-linolenic Omega-3 of chia into DHA & EPA fatty acids that are found in fish oil.

    Chia seeds are powerful source of the antioxidants chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid as well as myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol flavonols that protect delicate essential fatty acids from oxidation. Unlike other sources of omega-3 oils (e.g., flax, hemp, or fish), chia doesn’t require refrigeration or the artificial or natural added antioxidants such as vitamins in order to remain fresh.

    Chia has 19 to 23% protein content, more than that found in traditional cereals such as wheat (13.7%), corn (9.4%), rice (6.5%), oatmeal (16.9%) and barley (12.5%). And Chia’s protein is complete with all essential amino acids and is gluten-free.

    Chia seeds contain over 6 times more calcium than milk by weight (700mg in 100g of chia & 120mg in 100g milk) and chia’s calcium is more readily absorbed by the body than milk. It's also an excellent source of certain minerals, notably phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and copper. Chia has three times more iron than spinach, and fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli.
