Caution regarding Chia Seeds

Bonnie - For our clientele especially, be wary of consuming chia. While it is a wonderful foodstuff for some, the fact that it is a salicylate (in the mint family) makes it intolerable for some. I have had numerous clients complain about gastrointestinal complaints due to chia consumption.

I've never had my own chia pet or chia head or whatnot, but they look cool on TV. I just eat the seeds and I swear, they help sooo much as far as energy and feeling good throughout the day goes. I honestly started feeling so much better on a day-to-day basis after I started putting them in my smoothies about a year ago. The one's I get are Chia Pure. Chia Seeds Right Now they are even buy 1
