Super Omega 3 Organic Chia Seed 12 oz.
Each Serving of Organic Chia Seed contains 3g of Omega-3 (ALA, alpha-linolenic acid) and 1g of Omega-6 (LA, linoleic acid). These essential fatty acids (EFAs) cannot be produced by the body, so they must be obtained from foods or supplements. Essential fatty acids serve many roles in the body, including supporting the nervous system, cardiovascular health, vision, cell health, gene expression, and disease prevention. Vegetarians, and vegans in particular, may have suboptimal levels of EFAs. Fortunately, chia seed is an excellent plant source of EFAs.
