“How so?” I asked.
“Well,” she said, “With all those good Omegas and antioxidants, Drink Chia is going to make me beautiful: shiny hair, better skin, and strong nails”
Chia seeds are packed full of Omega-3 and Omega-6, about the perfect ratio. In fact chia seeds have the highest amount of plant sourced Omegas.
“ Omega-3s….are not just good for your heart… these fatty acids improve oxygen flow to skin and scalp.” (Women’s Health Magazine April 2012)
“Omega-6s are an essential fatty acid that helps replenish collagen to keep skin firm and smooth.” (Women’s Health Magazine April 2012)
Chia seeds also contain antioxidants and we’ve added some zinc and selenium into Drink Chia! to help boost the immune system too. Those antioxidants help fight off free radicals.
I have to admit my hair does look healthier. My smart a** friend said, “You know they put chia seeds in dog food to give them a shining coat.” Hmmm…. Well I guess if chia seeds can give them shiny hair why not me??? LOL
