Chia vs. Flax Seeds

Chia vs. Flax Seeds

Both Chia Seeds and Flax Seeds are incredible boosts to a NutriBlast, but when it comes down to nutrient content, which seed is the reigning champ?

Which seed are you rooting for?

Winner: CHIA SEEDS!

These power seeds offer up tough competition for the most nutrient-dense. While they each have their star qualities, we’ve decided chia seeds are the way to go when preparing your NutriBlast. These seeds require no additional grinding to unlock antioxidants and anti-inflammatory omega-3s. They boost the flavor of the complementary ingredients instead of dominating and are known to produce a more gel-like pudding, great for binding toxins and adding bulk to fill you up. Chia seeds are higher in fiber, calcium, phosphorus and iron. These minerals provide great bone-building benefits and help distribute oxygen for more efficient cellular energy.

Don’t just grow these superseeds on a ceramic pet or head, toss a tablespoon into your NutriBlast and reap the benefits!

Get to know your chia…

With the recent surge in chia-mania, most chia is harvested early to meet the demand. However, our chia seeds are allowed to mature fully, which results in higher antioxidants and omega-3 oils. They are grown organically in Ecuador and are solar-dried so they are not only healthy for you, but also for the environment.

Not only do we put Chia in our "Morning Blast" I add it to my daily oatmeal along with raisins, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds! We have an old herb shaker (with the bigger holes) filled with chia and it sits right along side of the pepper shaker--goes on just about everything. It's even part of our important adds for our 15 year-old Springer Spaniel's diet! Chia, the "Ancient food of the Future"! I'm in!

Do you soak the seeds before putting them in the nutriblast, or can you get the full benefit by putting them straight in?
