Today, Chia is recognized as one of the most nutritious plant foods on Earth! The seeds contain a rare combination of nutrients which provide nutritive support for overall health, weight management and endurance. Recent tests have revealed that the lignan content of Raw Chia Seed is surprisingly similar to flaxseed, which is generally regarded as the most abundant plant source of these beneficial phyto-nutrients.
