We love our chia seeds here at The Compounding Pharmacy! We stock a variety of sized packets of these super foods!
They pack a mean nutritional punch. Think protein, fat and dietary fibre! Plus all important minerals including magnesium, iron and calcium!
They are a great source of Omega 3’s! Perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
They keep you regular! Chia seeds contain a lot of soluble fibre, to keep your gut happy!
They are incredibly versatile. Add to cookies or other baked goods. Sprinkle on salads. Add milk and make a chia pudding for breakfast. Add a 1/4 cup of water to 1 tbsp and you have an egg replacer for baked goods.
They can aid hydration. A perfect pre-workout snack! Or add some chia seeds to your water bottle today
