Chia seeds became a trend in pop culture thanks to the Chia Pet, but they are popular in the health world because they offer a lot of nutrition in a tiny package. One ounce (about three tablespoons) of these tiny seeds delivers 11 g of fiber, 180 mg of calcium, 4 g of protein and 9 g of fat – and more than half the fat is alpha-linolenic acid, a beneficial omega-3. Chia, a member of the mint family, grows in the U.S., Mexico and parts of Central and South America. Incorporate Swanson Premium Chia Seed into soups, sauces, smoothies and more. If you want to get the benefits of chia seed without adding them to your food, supplement with Swanson Premium Chia Seed capsules or Swanson EFAs Chia Seed Oil softgels.
