Vegetarian and low-fat diets sometime run the risk of being low in essential fatty acids. A great way to supplement your meals with more of these nutrients is Chia Seeds! Chia Seeds add Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, fiber, and protein to any dish, and their neutral flavor keeps your recipes tasting just how you like them.**
One serving provides 3 grams of protein and 5 grams of dietary fiber. Fiber helps to lower the glycemic index of meals, to help maintain blood sugar levels already within a normal range.**
Chia Seeds provide Omega-3 in the form of Alpha Linoleic Acid (ALA) and Omega-6 as Linoleic Acid (LA) – vegetarian sources of these essential nutrients. Essential fatty acids provide support for heart health, immune system and the skin.**
Chia is one of the most popular, natural sources of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.** This vegetarian-friendly superfood makes the perfect addition to your nutritional program.
Just sprinkle a serving of Chia seed onto yogurt, cereal, soups, salads, or any other food you desire. Chia can also be incorporated into your favorite baked recipe - the possibilities are endless!
