THE ORIGINAL ORGANIC SUPERSEED
Chia seeds have been a staple for native American people as early as 3500 BC. It's no wonder the word name Chia is Mayan for 'strength', as the Ancient Aztec warriors were said to consume one teaspoon of this superfood to sustain them for 24 hours!
When ingested, the Organic Chia Seeds form a ‘gel’ in the stomach which leads to slow digestion and sustained balance of sugar levels, which can be helpful in preventing or controlling diabetes.
