Rapunzel Organic Chia Seeds in raw food quality.

Chia Seeds are a great source of healthy omega-3 fats and fibre, and fortunately it's an easy food to add to your diet.

Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving. These fats are important for brain health. "There's better conversion of omega 3s into the plasma or into the food than with flax seed.

Chia seeds come from a flowering plant in the mint family that's native to Mexico and Guatemala, and history suggests it was a very important food crop for the Aztecs. It's remained in regular use in its native countries, but was largely unknown in North America until researcher Wayne Coates began studying chia as an alternative crop for farmers in northern Argentina about 29 years ago.

Health Benefits of Organic Chia Seeds
There are many reasons as to why chia seeds are said to be healthy and nutritious. The seeds are very low in cholesterol and sodium. They are easy to digest (easier to digest than flax seeds which require grinding) and they contain more nutrients than flax seeds. Chia seeds are a good source of calcium and phosphorus, and a very good source of dietary fiber and manganese.
