In Pre-Columbian times, chia seeds were a component of the Aztec diet as well as an integral part on religious ceremonies. The Aztecs also.used chia medicinally to relieve joint pain and skin conditions. Today, chia is best known as the rapidly growing sprouts "hair" from terra-cotta heads. In reality, these healthful, edible seeds are a better source of omega-3 fatty acids than flax seed (the fats that protect against inflammation and heart disease). While flax seed enriched foods have been driving the omega-3 trend, Chia's attributes show to be the true "Super Food" of today. In a side by side comparison chia and flax seed are both a natural vegetable source of omega-3. Flax's hull limits digestibility, so often ground flax is used in food products. Chia is easy to digest without having to be ground.

The most widely known and accepted benefit of the omega-3 fatty acid consumption is its link to improved cardiovascular health. From all indications and research, Chia works just as well as fish oil when it comes to lowering levels of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol while raising beneficial HDL Cholesterol.

Chia is a sustainable and environmentally friendly product. The high oil content of its leaves acts as an extremely potent insect repellent and eliminates the need from pesticides being used to protect the crop. The use of chia as an omega-3 source prevents depletion of natural fish stocks and also eliminates concerns about the accumulation of toxins such as dioxin and mercury that may accumulate in fish and fish products. Solvent extraction and artificial preservatives are not needed when chia seed is used in human or animal diets. This is another advantage compared to omega-3 sources such as algae.
