Chia seed oil is a naturally vegan health food that has many positive properties. The oil comes from the Chia seed, commonly used on the novelty item, the “Chia Pet™”. It has tremendous nutritional value for those who choose to eat the seeds or drink the oil that comes from the seeds. Chia seed has been known for its healthful properties for centuries, when it was used as a staple food by Native Americans of the Mexico and the American Southwest.
Chia seed can be used as a unique part of any dietary plan. One of the best properties of chia seed is that it is vegan and it contains a high amount of oil. In fact, it is known to be the richest vegan source for the essential omega-3 fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid. Chia Seed contains up to three times the omega-3 content of most normal grains. Omega-3 oil, along with other essential fatty acids, help absorb fat soluble vitamins, including vitamin A, D, E and K. Vegan Chia seed oil is also found to be an excellent source of linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid the body can’t manufacture on its own. Unsaturated fatty acids are important for the respiratory process of vital organs and help make it easier for oxygen to be transported by the blood stream to all organs, tissues and cells*
DEVA Chia Seed oil is cold-pressed, unrefined and it comes in vegan capsules that are made from plant cellulose instead of the commonly used gelatin.
