Why do we use Chia seed in our treats? The chia plant (Salvia hispanica) is a member of the mint family that's native to Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seeds are high in protien and provide fibre, iron, magnesium, zinc and phosphorous. They help to boost metabolism and promote lean muscle mass. The calcium in Chia can help to promote healthy teeth and bones.
Chia is one of the highest known plant sources of essential fatty acids(Omega 3 and 6). These essential fatty acids help to lubricate joints and relieve arthritis pain & swelling.
