CHIA SEED POWER
So we know good things come in small packages right? From diamond rings to shots of the very finest whisky, at any one time a small thing is bringing immense pleasure to someone, somewhere. Our teeny, tiny chia seeds are the jewels in our crown, the warmth in our belly and could bring pleasure to far more people than they currently are. Chia is the Mayan word for strength and no wonder - forgotten for generations, chia’s mighty powers should be recognised as one of earth’s finest superfoods, packing a massive nutritional punch for health.
The health keeper - our chia seeds are a great source of good fats (the omega ones) which are good for normal heart function and maintaining normal cholesterol levels. Magnesium and vitamins B1 and B3 are good for the heart, nerves and mind, The calcium, magnesium and phosphorus are good for our bones and teeth, Magnesium even has added benefits of helping electrolyte balancing (keeps us functioning at our best). Phew!
The energiser - vitamins B1 and B3, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium in our chia seeds help us keep a normal metabolism and reduce tiredness and fatigue.
The protector - the vitamin E in chia seeds helps protect our cells from oxidative stress.
The builder - our chia is high in protein helping us to maintain and grow muscle. The magnesium in chia helps with protein synthesis (breaking down and absorbing protein) and along with calcium keeps the muscles working normally.
The diet satisfier - protein also helps us to feel fuller for longer, good for satiety. Also, chia seeds expand approx 20 times itheir normal size when added to water (a gel is formed around the seed) Wow!
OUR CHIA PROMISE
We are determined to honour the plants we use in our superfoods. We treat them with respect. Protect the nutritional powers of their seeds and make sure you benefit from their goodness.
Our chia seeds are organically grown in South America and simply harvested, vibro cleaned (involves shaking out stones etc.), packed and delivered, keeping raw and pure to the door.
100% raw organic chia seeds and nothing else. Soil Association certified and Vegan Society registered for that extra peace of mind.
CHIA SEED YOURSELF!
Despite being around for centuries, chia seeds are unfamiliar in our modern day diet - and still considered a ‘novel food' by the authorities. This means our recommendations for use are restricted to adding to bread products with a max chia seed content of 5% (like poppy seeds), but we hope still give you a chance to experience the mighty power of chia seeds first hand!
SHARING CHIA LOVE
"Compared to other chia seeds I've brought from other brands, these ones impressed me because they were particularly free of impurities. In chia by other brands you sometimes get little stones and other impurities in there but these ones from BodyMe seem to be particularly clean and of high quality." Ms T.
"Arrived on time. Quality is good - very pleased." Amazon customer.
