Omega 3 Chia Research
Chia (Salvia hispanica L) Research
Conducted by Nutritional Science Research Institute (NSRI)click here
Omega 3 Chia© is the only chia that is certified in all the folloing certfications:
Chia (Salvia hispanica L) has a thinning effect on the blood that is likely to be protective against stroke and heart attack. This research was published in the November 2007 issue of Diabetes Care 30:2804-2810, 2007
Further research in diabetic subjects shows that about 40 grams of Chia (Salvia hispanica L) per day results in significantly decreased systolic blood pressure. C-reactive protein (CRP), a blood protein that is a measure of chronic inflammation, was also reduced significantly.
High blood pressure is a known risk factor for cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. Chronic inflammation has emerged as a cardiovascular risk factor that is more predictive than obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, and even high cholesterol. Statins, drugs that lower cholesterol, also decrease heart attack and stroke. Emerging evidence shows that statins also reduce chronic inflammation, as measured by CRP. At present it is not possible to determine if the reduction in cardiovascular risk is due to cholesterol reduction, CRP reduction, or both. Other studies showing that tea drinking reduces both CRP and cardiovascular risk, suggests that CRP reduction may be at least part of why statins lower heart attack and stroke.
NSRI, in conjunction with Dr. David Nieman of Appalachian State University, is conducting a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in healthy, non-diabetic subjects to examine the effects of Chia. The results of these studies will be available 2008.
Why we chose the light and dark combination seed.
Chia seed has an ORAC of 98 micromoles TE/g for the dark seed(click to view), and
70 micromoles TE/g for the light seed (click to view).
It is one of the most powerful whole food antioxidants we know.
NSRI has conducted extensive analyses on this food product and found it to be a versatile, user-friendly, exceptional and unique low-calorie source of omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants, complete protein, iron, calcium, and magnesium. Below is a summary of itsnutritional content:
