Product Description

The Chia Seed is an amazing food. For centuries many have used the seeds for a host of different reasons. Native Americans would take a pouch of seeds and a gourd of water on their trips. The seeds were their food source and taken with the water they would hydrate their bodies for endurance. When you hydrate the seeds in water the seeds shell opens up and absorbs up to nine times its volume in water. This then forms a gel, which is called Chia Seed Gel. The gel helps keep your body hydrated. The gel is also 90% soluble fiber, which is beneficial for your digestive track. People use the seeds when they are involved in sports or physical activities for endurance.

I was introduced to chia seeds by my daughter (a Level 1 Trauma Center emergency room nurse)when I last visited her digs. "Hey dad! Try this..." and then she handed me a 16 oz glass with what I thought I recognized as floating detritus from a poorly washed glass. I looked at her and she said "They're chia seeds!" So I took a big gulp of the drink as she explained how great they were for me. She sent me home with a zip lock bag full of them and her follow-on instructions:

Take 1 TBSP with a 16 oz glass of water once a day for a week.
Take 2 TBSP with a 16 oz glass of water once a day for a week.
Take 2 glasses of water in the morning and afternoon with the two TBSP dosage.

A remarkable think happened after 7-10 days in the process. It was around 2:00 pm in the afternoon and I didn't remember making coffee that morning. I checked my favorite coffee mug (usually used it 2-3x in the morning)and it was brand-spanking clean still in the cupboard. And I haven't felt the need to have coffee since. No withdrawal symptoms, no DT's, nothing. Like I said, the coffee industry is going to HATE this review.

More energy, have lost 6 lbs in 2 weeks, and I'm off of coffee (an addiction I had for over 30 years)!

As for the seller, I received the 5 lb bag double bagged and there was no leakage, anything. Nicely packaged and shipped promptly. I'm hooked for sure...

Although some may disagree, I usually prep 2 glasses for the chia seeds before I go to bed (just leave 'em on the counter)and give them a stir in the morning. I usually add a slug of Trader Joe's cranberry juice to each glass just because if chia seeds are great, then chia seeds with cranberry juice have to be awesome, at least by my way of thinking.

This is the best price for Chia seeds I've found and the seller ships quickly; however, 5# of seeds are STUFFED into an overnight envelope. All it would take is a small puncture for all my seeds to be scattered before getting to me. . . These need to be boxed.

This is a great product, it has helped me lose 10lbs & has helped my arthritis also, my sister uses it & has had the same results along with she claims it gives her more energy, my son runs marithons & he says he's never put in such fast times before, you just have to get over the part where people think you're drinking or eating frog eggs, I just tell everyone they taste kind of like tomatoe seeds, you know, like no real taste at all. I don't go without them now. I make up my gel, then I add it to iced tea and drink it all day, my son just throws the seeds into a power drink, then adds water during the day, I put it on my oatmeal, my sister drinks it as well as puts it on salads, she says don't just sprinkle the seeds on things though cause they stick like glue on your teeth & then you look really tacky & don't realize it.

I tried chia seeds expecting nothing to come of it. Reading about them, they seemed too good to be true. Boy, was I ever proved wrong! I add 1-2 Tbs to a large glass of water each morning, let them sit for at least 15 minutes, drink them and then go on with my day. I may do a second dose if I'm spending the bulk of the day in the sun and heat.

It did take some time to get used to the texture, and as a person with many texture issues when it comes to food/beverages (seriously, I'm the only person I know who gags at a bite of mashed potatoes) it didn't take me that long to power through and learn how to gulp them down without hardly noticing they were there. I prefer to take them this way for the convenience factor and to prevent them from getting stuck in my teeth.

I get easily dehydrated and can tell at once when I am, and these have virtually eliminated that from happening. I also suffer from a lot of digestive issues whose symptoms haven't even been noticeable since I started incorporating chia into my diet a few months ago. I'm not sure if they energize me any more than normal, but I'm not going to question or doubt anyone who says they do.

I also want to add that this seller has apparently taken some of the complaints about these being shipped in an envelope to heart, because mine arrived safely packaged in a box. I'm getting ready to order my second 5lb order, and couldn't be more excited! It's insane how much they want for these in the local health food store. I'd pay it now that I'm hooked, but I'm glad I don't have to!

I'm a college student so I don't have much money for healthy food but this is one thing I refuse to go without because they "work" for me. I first realized the chia seeds were "working" when I was on my way home and suddenly felt ravenously hungry. My first thought was that the chia seeds and tea I had had earlier were the cause... until I realized that I last eaten 5 or 6 hours ago and was just NOW feeling hungry. I hadn't even thought about food for the past few hours! For me that is especially incredible, since I'm a "grazer" and eat every few hours out of hunger or boredom. Chia seeds are super-nutritious, decrease your appetite, and increase your energy levels so you should definitely buy some!
