Description
Chia is an ancient seed that has more omega 3 and dietary fibre than any other food from nature. It has been left out of the modern diet because it is very hard to grow, requiring specific climatic conditions. We were so inspired by this miraculous seed that we have dedicated ourselves to reviving it – hence The Chia Co.

We grow it naturally in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, exactly 15 degrees from the equator to produce only the best quality chia!

Health Notes

Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit Seed Extract
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions
In one study, grapefruit seed extract improved IBS symptoms in 20% of people taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest.(more)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Dose: Refer to label instructions

A preliminary trial investigated the effectiveness of grapefruit seed extract in people with eczema and symptoms of IBS.1 Participants received either 2 drops of a 0.5% oral solution of grapefruit seed extract twice daily or 150 mg of encapsulated grapefruit seed extract three times daily. After a month, IBS symptoms had improved in 20% of those taking the liquid, while all of the patients taking capsules noted definite improvement of constipation, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and night rest. These results need confirmation in double-blind trials.

          Comments about THE CHIA COMPANY The Chia Co® Australian Grown Chia Seed - Black:

          I love it. I usually add it in to my protein shakes. It mixes well and has no taste. It also makes a great breakfast. Let it soak up water (about a 1:2 chia to water ratio) until it becomes thick like oatmeal, then stir in some honey (great with fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice) and enjoy. I have served it to some friends who didn't like the "sticky texture," it doesn't bother me at all. I use it to garnish salad, or the like, with. Really anything you can think of it goes well with. The only warning I have is not to take it before bed. It gives me so much energy that I can not sleep no matter how tired I am. Aside from that it's a great product.

          I wanted to add chia seeds to my diet for all the healthy benefits. It takes no time to add to drinks or meals I absolutely love it. It does help me eat a little less because of the fiber and water involved!!
