Chia is the Mayan word for strength. The seeds were used by these ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures as mega-energy food, by their running messengers, who would carry a small pouch with them for sustenance.

What are Chia seeds? 

Chia seed is a wholegrain food because it contains all components of the grain; the Bran, Germ and Endosperm. Research also shows that eating wholegrain foods can help lower the risk of being overweight and lower the risk of diet related disease such as diabetes and heart disease.

Chia is a great natural source of complete protein (20% protein in each serve) with all 8 essential amino acids. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissue, hair and nails and must draw it from the diet as protein isn’t stored in the body.

Chia seed has much in common with Flaxseed however the distinct advantage is that Chia’s natural antioxidants make them stable whereas flax quickly becomes rancid.


Sprinkle Chia Seeds raw on your foods as a nutrition booster.  Add to breakfast cereals, salads and baking.  When mixed with water, Chia seeds swell and form mucilage, a gel that can be added to smoothies, juices, soups, sauces and well pretty much anything.

Chia seeds are so easy to add into your daily diet, I have them in drinks before going for a run and also have some to drink on my runs if it going to be a long run, I certainly get a boost from them. These little seeds are the best and are packed full of goodness, try them :-)

This is a hygienic way to buy Chia Seeds. When put in water they swell within a few minutes and then are nice mixed with yogurt.

I wouldn’t be without chia seeds now. I started taking them because they are high in the B vitamins. I have since read they are great for energy levels. They are so versatile. I usually have them in my healthy pancakes. A mashed banana, about a tablespoon of chia seeds, 2 eggs and a couple of tablespoons of quinoa powder. Mix altogether and fry in coconut oil. Top with fresh fruit salad, honey and cinnamon.

How I enjoy my organic chia seeds, I call it my hight octane breakfast starter which I mix with Spirulina, Sesame seeds, bee pollen, oat bran and coconut water, made into a smoothy. Brilliant stuff..... I then wait until lunch time for my salad. Great for the energy and figure.

Wow, how come I haven`t heard of this berore? I am 66 years old and inclined to be overweight so this is ideal for me. I have it in the morning on my yohurt and don`t feel hungry for about 6 hours. It took about 3 weeks before I had any weight difference but I have lost 1.5 kgs.! Another benifit is regular bowel movements which is another area I have had problems. It sure is a wonder food and when I go on holiday Chia seeds will go with me.

Customer: Amy   09 May 2013

Customer rating:

Unfortunately I did not feel more energised from eating chia seeds with my breakfast, but as I really enjoy the nutty taste I've still continued to use them, also so I can benefit from the omega 3. I have been using them in my home made bread along with other seeds and they taste great, an unusual addition, similar to poppy seeds but much better for you!

Customer: Judith    27 Apr 2013

Can't get enough of these chia seeds! They are nice after they've been soaked, or to add crunch and eat them dry. I love to eat them with oats and shredded apple as a healthy bircher muesli. Delicious & nutritious. I would have to say they definitely are a "super-food" and very affordable as well.

Customer: Katharine   14 Mar 2013

Ever since I have tried chia seeds I LOVE them! I use them in everything from my morning cup of tea to get me going to baking to sprinkled on top of salads. These are an amazing addition to my diet and super nutritious!! They will keep you full for hours. Highly recommend them to everyone.

Customer: Holly   28 Feb 2013

I love these seeds. They definitely give me energy, and since they have very little taste, I can have them on a lot of foods. Lately I put them on egg sandwiches with celery, in soup, and in my smoothies. So versatile and healthy, and the price is pretty reasonable too.

Customer: Christine   10 Feb 2013

After seeing these on a health programme on TV, I decided to try them as an alternate source to my Omega tablets. I add them to my cereal each morning and they taste great and the fact that they are good for me and easy to eat is a bonus!!

Have been using Chia seeds at Otatara restcare and rehabilitation for the last 12months. Chia seeds are used in soups, stews, fruit salads and baking. I believe that Chia seeds contribute to the improved health status of the residents who live at Otatara and staff who work here. Since we started using Chia seeds we have had a significant reduction in the need for preion laxatives and now require almost no invasive bowel proceedures, eg suppositories, enemas.

Customer: Fiona   28 Nov 2012

I have used chia seeds for a couple of years now. I add them to everything, stews, casseroles, drinks, salads, porridge. My 7 year old son asks for a dose whenever he has lots of sporting activities coming up.

I tried Chia seeds to help with my arthritis as I am unable to take anti inflammatory medications. I have been taking them with my breakfast each day for nearly 3 months. I had a painful arthritic nodule on one finger and this has disappeared completely. Ordering the seeds is so simple either online or by an 0800 number and I usually receive them the next day, an excellent service.

The whole family plus dog take it daily. Partner has physical job and has felt more energised since I've added 1 - 2 tbls to his drink daily. Along with added msm powder in his drink his constant body pain has eased considerably. Initially, a "doubting thomas" he now raves about it to everyone.

Customer: Noor   13 Oct 2012

Customer rating:

This is an amazing product! Glad i tried it. I feel full longer. Seems to ease bowel movement. I feel less tired too. I ate it raw, or hydrate it with just enough water till it's gelling consistency or completely soaked it in my favourite drinks. This is my go to snack now. I don't even want those sugary treats anymore.

Customer: Carmen   09 Oct 2012

Customer rating:

These chia seeds are so versatile and nutritious. The resealable, sturdy pack is handy too and i like the way chia seeds don't need to be stored in the fridge or ground before use, like flaxseed. I make a chia gel (1/3 C of seeds mixed into 2 C water) and have 2 T per day, in the morning with breakfast as an alternative to ground flaxseed. It's a great replenisher after exercise and it keeps me regular and energised throughout the day!

Customer: Andy   09 Oct 2012

Customer rating:

Easy to use on my breakfast in the morning or in baking. Plenty of recipes to google online including how to make a gell by soaking them in water, to add the texture that you need in baking so you can eliminate the fats in the recipe eg butter. Great to know they are so packed with good benefits for the body.

Customer: Janet   05 Oct 2012

We have been taking Chia Seeds for over two years and are amazed at the extra energy we have throughout the day. No need for any snaking anymore!! We have consequently put many people onto this wonder food. Thanks for the prompt service and delivery...great stuff.

I have been having chia seed with ground-up flaxseed in yoghurt at breakfast over the past few weeks - in that time I have noticed that the haemorrhoid problem I suffered from for a number of months has almost disappeared! - I'm putting it down to the"gelling" effect of the chia seed. A great bonus in addition to its other numerous health benefits!

Customer: Lynnaire   05 Sep 2012

I love the nutty taste and crunchy texture, I add Chia Seeds to vegetables, cereals and great in banana cake!

Customer: Tina   19 Aug 2012

Customer rating:

We have been taking chia seeds for a week and have seen some positive results. We definitely both have more energy which is a positive. 30% of the chia seed’s oil is Omega 3 oil. 40% of its oil is Omega 6 oil which is a nice balance of supplemental Essential Fatty Acids that we are needing in our bodies. They are easy to digest and great sprinkled on cereals and yoghurt. You can also bake in bread and cakes, so they are very versatile. We would definitely recommend this product.

Customer: Rose-Marie   08 Aug 2012

Customer rating:

I have had extreme gastric problems (including a hiatus hernia) such as ulcers and severe reflux UNTIL I took chia seeds. They worked like magic and I certainly know when I miss them for a day or two. Can't believe I didn't know about them before, especially as we have all sorts of salvias in our garden! From being in so much pain I couldn't sleep to hardly any symptoms at all is sheer bliss. I highly recommend them.

Customer: Denise   02 Aug 2012

Customer rating:

A university study recently discovered Chia seeds induce redistribution of fat which can accumulate in the heart & liver. An ultra sound revealed I had a fatty liver, since taking chia seeds, I definitely feel less "livery" and have more energy. Chia means strength, they're a super food, full of essential nutrients.

Chia seeds are quite hard to come by in ordinary shops so I am thrilled that healthpost is stocking them so I can stock up when I buy my supplements. Top quality seeds, they're great in your porridge, in a smoothie etc Great source of EFAs in a vegan diet, and can work as a binding agent in dairy-free baking. The self-sealing bag is a real bonus.

Customer: Marie   26 Jun 2012

The benefits of this product are huge, once I learnt about it I have made a habit of having 3 teaspoons each day, and feel great.

My son bought me a bag of these for Mothers' Day, as a change from all those "treats" like chocolate and wine, that we always regret consuming! I love these - I include them when I make muesli and always sprinkle them on my porridge with a bit of fruit. They add a lovely bit of texture and are still fresh in the clever self-sealing bag. A win!

I first learn't about these through the book 'Born to run' where a running tribe use these to sustain them on long runs. I use mine sprinkled on toast under eggs or spaghetti or in casseroles. I like them for the high Omega 3. Great price and great service from HealthPost. Thank you

Customer: Lea   10 May 2011

Customer rating:

This is an amazing product and very simple to take. It keeps you hydrated - dehydration being one of the greatest causes behind ill health. I love it because its a nutritious balanced whole food - better than a multi vitamin. I usually take in the morning and I find that on the odd occasion when I don't get lunch until 2pm I am not hungry. I sometimes take for lunch with 1/2 a vegetable stock cube - its better than a cup of soup!! Tiny seeds packed with energy! enjoy!

It sounds like a very good product for some one like me with joint problems, will give it a try and see what happens.
