5.0 out of 5 stars Discovery of the Century!, March 8, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Chia Seeds, 1 Pound Pouches (Grocery)
When I found out I was pregnant with my first child, I read in a baby magazine about the wonderful health benefits of Chia seeds. They are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, and because healthy brain function is nurtured by Omega-3 fatty acids, I wanted to supplement my diet with something other than fish oil pills that can pack a fairly unpleasant aftertaste.
These seeds are so tiny, and so flavorless, that you can mix them into cereal, or even juice, without ever realizing you have consumed them. I have also found that adding these seeds to my breakfast keeps me fuller longer.
Chia seeds are more convenient than flax seeds, and a pound of them, costing around $12 (depending on the seller), lasts a few months.
If you want to avoid the potential unpleasantness of fish oil supplements, Chia seeds are a great alternative, and for new or expecting mothers, they are a great way to ensure your baby is getting what s/he needs for optimum brain health and development.
Lastly, you do not have to be considering motherhood to consider adding Chia to your diet. It is a wonderful, all-natural supplement that is perfectly painless (in both taste and cost) to undertake.
Who would have thought that the seeds responsible for the (infamous) "Chia Pet" would offer so much more than a gawdy table ornament?
Highly recommended.

My sister and I used to eat Chia seeds when we were kids. My mother would rest the seeds in water until they expanded becoming almost buoyant. And then add them to our favorite drinks, It was always fun picking the seeds out of our drinks.

The reviews are correct, the seeds are flavorless, even if you bike in to them (which we used to do all the time) you will not experience a bad taste.

I never knew you their name (when I was a kid we called it Chan), that they are so good for you and that they are available in the US.

Thanks for the great review!!!
