Description More Information
 
Famous for its use in Chia Pets, this herb seed also gives many health benefits. The plant, which derives from the mint family, has fuzzy, dark green leaves. Often used by ancient Aztec warriors as a basic survival ration - it was believed that one tablespoon of Chia seeds could sustain an individual for 24 hours! They also used it medicinally to stimulate saliva flow and relieve joint pain and sore skin.

In modern times Chia is used in many foods because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Some people have found that mixing Chia seeds with chicken feed produces eggs rich in omega-3s.

Great Vendor February 26, 2015
Reviewer: thekarco from Bay Point, CA United States  
I was pleasantly surprised when I received my package ahead of time.  I was quite delighted to notice the excellent packaging that my ordered seeds came in.  I did not expect the metallic envelopes protecting the seeds for the low price I paid for the seeds.

Chia August 3, 2014
Reviewer: Jackie S. from Angola, IN United States  
I was excited when some of my seedlings began to emerge. I transplanted my seedlings outside and now I have a huge plant that is about chest-high and at least 3' in diameter. I can't wait to see what it looks like if it blooms.

Chia April 11, 2014
Reviewer: Jackie Perkins from Sweet Springs, MO United States  
The quantity and price are awesome. I was excited to find this seed to grow. To purchase these seeds packaged for consumption is quite expensive. They are very nutritious.
