Organic chia seeds – small and packed with power


In our part of the world, these teeny-weeny power packs have only recently come to our attention: Chia seeds only became fashionable in 2009 as a so-called superfood, and are a popular nutrient especially with vegetarians and vegans. Yet the small power seeds have been considered a true “power food” since time immemorial, above all in the ancient Maya civilization. We at lavera Naturkosmetik likewise rely on this fashionable, small source of minerals, and have incorporated organic chia seeds into our valuable, well-balanced natural compositions for natural body cleansing.

Small power packs

Chia seeds are found in the South American chia plant, which is also known by the name of Salvia hispanica and belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae). Did you know that chia seeds belong to the so-called “pseudocereals”, alongside quinoa and amaranth? This name describes those cereals that are used as such, but cannot be baked and do not contain gluten.
