Organic Chia Seeds

Update: Mom has imported Organic Chia Seed in bulk for us & the humans as it's way cheaper than purchasin' them locally since we're all consumin' them in good amounts everyday.

You may view us eatin' it here!

5.44kg (1.36kg per pack) of Organic Chia Seed received very promptly on 210111


It will only last the entire family abt........... 3 months+? Let's watch & see... [the ans is 6months!]


Mom has been readin' a book on Barefoot Runnin' (Born to Run by Christopher McDougall). It's about an ancient runnin' tribe of super athletes... they're able to run for 2 days straight WITHOUT any rest at all. They do 50 to 100miles of run for PURE enjoyment. They're the Tarahumara Tribe.

''A Tarahumara champion once ran 435 miles, the equivalent of setting our for a jog in New York City & not stopping till you were closing in on Detroit. Other Tarahumara runners reportedly went three hundred miles at a pop. That's nearly twelve full marathons, back to back to back, while the run rose and set and rose again.'' from the book, BORN TO RUN by Christopher McDougall

The Tarahumara diet is described in some small detail in the book, with repeated mention of two staples — pinole and chia seeds. The author relates a few stories that ascribe almost magical, endurance-enhancing qualities to these simple foods. ( http://www.nomeatathlete.com/tarahumara-pinole-chia-recipes/ )

So here we are, gettin' organic Chia Seeds as 1 of our daily organic Raw foods. It's for us as well as for our humans while they do their (barefoot or minimalism) marathons.

You may read more about Chia Seeds for dogs here (Taken from the website: For my dog Kuuma, I mix a good amount of chia seeds with raw eggs or raw meat and keep it refrigerated for 48 hours before feeding it to my dog to increase its nutritional content. When Chia seeds, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids are included in your dog's diet, your can expect to see your dog's overall health to improve with the energy of a puppy and its coat to become shiny and healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients, deficient in most dogs' diets. Omega-3 fatty acids are fundamental molecules in the structure and activity of the membranes of all cells throughout your dog's body. They also have highly- specialized functions in neurological tissues, especially the brain and retina and play an important role in cell membranes and the formation of new tissue, therefore important for development and growth. You will love the ease of using Chia seeds and dogs love the nutty taste!)

The web site Chiaforhealth.com recommends giving chia seed or chia oil to the family pet for their health as well! For the health of cats and/or small dogs (under 25 pounds), SOAK 1/4 teaspoon a day and mix it with their food. For larger dogs soak 1 teaspoon per day and add to food. For big dogs soak 1 teaspoon twice daily and add to food.

* CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH ... Soaking makes chia seeds easier for the body to digest and release the high levels of good-for-you nutrients. If you are using seeds dry, BE CAREFUL of the quantity you sprinkle on food without soaking. Chia seeds absorb 10 times their volume in water, both outside and inside the body. When using dry chia seeds, it is recommended to use only a teaspoon at a time and make sure you (or your children and/or animals) are well hydrated.'' Credits

Oganic stores have 2 kinds of Chia Seeds, Natural & Organic. As well as White & Black Chia Seeds.
