Carrington Farms Flax Chia Blend: The Ultimate Superfood

Carrington Farms Flax Chia Blend: The Ultimate SuperfoodWith a healthy amount of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, protein, and fiber, the combination of Flax and Chia seeds offers the best of both.  Both Chia and Flax are high in soluble and insoluble fiber which promotes healthy digestion and bowel regularity. They are both gluten free and do not have any cholesterol, sodium, or sugars, yet they provide energy and nutrition. Combining both of these seeds results in a SUPER high amount of Omega-3’s, protein, and fiber!

Chia seed is a member of the sage family (Salvia Hispanica), the tiny black and white seeds were once a staple of the Incan, Mayan, and Aztec cultures. These ancient cultures used chia seeds as an energy food. Folklore has it that the Aztec Warriors would take a “shot” of chia and run for days.  They called it their “running food” because messengers could purportedly run all day on just a handful.  The Aztecs believed it gave them mystical, almost supernatural energy and power.

Chia seed is a nutritious source of antioxidants, which protect the cells from damage against free radicals. Free radicals lead to problematic conditions such as premature aging of the skin and inflammation of various tissues. Chia seeds have been said to have 5 times more calcium than milk, 2 times more potassium than bananas, and 3 times more iron than spinach.

Flax seed is the richest known plant source of phytoestrogens, which is not found in Chia. Phytoestrogens, called Lignans in Flax seed, act as a normal hormone therapy and help to stabilize hormonal levels. Flax seed contains 75-800 times more lignans than any other plant food.  Flax seed has been used to help reduce total blood cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol levels and, as a result, may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

By combining these two great seeds Carrington Farms believes it has created the ultimate “SUPERFOOD”!
