Highly trained athletes enhance energy through the sustaining, hydrating power of chia.

Protein is crucial for sustaining energy and building lean muscle.
Chia seeds are roughly 20% protein, 25% fat, and 55% carbohydrate – a ratio recommended for daily optimal nutrition.

Chia Seeds are the highest source of natural, plant-based omega-3 fatty acids - housing 800 mg more than ground flax. Two tablespoons of chia have more omega-3 than two servings of salmon.
Omega-3 fatty acids are vital in optimizing heart health, boosting brain function, enhancing mood, fighting inflammation, and strengthening the immune system.
Unlike fish oil, AztecChia™ does not contain the risk of heavy metals accumulation or overconsumption of EPA & DHA. Epidemiologic studies report that ALA (Alpha Linoleic Acid) has a very valuable, unique role in the body – taking fish oil is not enough by itself. Omega-3 fatty acids from plant sources should be included in a cardioprotective diet, especially for pregnant women and those managing blood sugar. Read more.
We would do well to learn from healthier cultures around the world whose traditional diet has a higher omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.
Aztec warriors blew through the equivalent of high-altitude ultramarathons by munching on only handfuls of chia. Today, this superfood is the vital force that powers the Tarahumara runners, who conquer 50-100 mile distances with bare feet.
Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run, the true story of the Tarahumara, compares the nutritional value of chia to concocting a “smoothie of wild salmon, spinach and human growth hormones.”
Q: How do I use AztecChia™?
A: AztecChia™ has a slightly nutty flavor and can be sprinkled on oatmeal, cereal, smoothies, or yogurt for a power breakfast. Ground chia is an excellent flour substitute and can be used to make gluten-free breads, baked goods, and pizza dough. Chia can be made into a gel and used as an egg or oil replacement in baked goods to up the nutrient density while lowering the fat and calories. Dr. Vuksan, of the University of Toronto, has one approach: a salt shaker, a pepper shaker and a chia shaker.
Q: How much AztecChia™ can I have?
A: People would do well to make a habit of adding chia to their daily diet. As Dr. Coates, coauthor of Chia: Rediscovering a Forgotten Crop of the Aztecs, states “Most people can eat a cup a day without a problem.” Gradually increasing dietary fiber is important to avoid gastrointestinal distress.
