Ingredients & DescriptionThose who are privy to the various lingoes of Natural Health are most likely familiar with phrases such as "Super Food," "Super Supplement" or "Whole Food." But how about a "Super Grain?" A grain rich in nutrients including Omega-3's, Antioxidants, Calcium, Iron and so much more- let us familiarize ourselves with Salba® from Core Naturals.
Salba is so great a grain, it puts most others to shame. With 8 x the amount of Omega-3 found in freshly cooked salmon, 6 x the amount of Calcium found in Whole Milk, and 4 x the amount of Fiber found in Flax Seed, Salba truly is a Super Grain, if not the ultimate Super Grain. Salba is an exceptionally cultivated Chia. Salba® is a registered variety of Salvia hispanica- an annual herb in the Mint family, native to the Valley of Mexico. Ancient cultures to that area and areas surrounding the valley depended on this Super Grain as a vital food source.
What sets Salba apart from common Chia? Salba® is grown under controlled conditions in the Desert Coast of Peru and cultivated by specific standards to yield a nutritionally consistent crop. This induced form of natural selection ensures a product consistently higher in protein and richer in Omega-3's than common Chia. In addition, Salba has undergone vigorous clinical studies and it's benefits are supported by world-wide health and medical claims, including testimonials from individuals and medical practitioners alike. On top of that, Salba® is Certified Non-GMO, is Vegan, Kosher, and Gluten-Free.
Salba Ground Seed is optimal for cooking & baking, and can be added to virtually any dish, meal, or beverage. With no trans-fats, and extremely low carbohydrate content, Salba helps you keep going strong all day. Salba has been found to actually stop drastic rises in blood sugar levels following meals, and prevents the immediate drop thereafter, known as the "hunger zone."
Honestly, what doesn't Salba benefit?
