Salba the superfood


You already know plenty about all the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids. About how they are crucial to the proper development and function of cell membranes in the brain.

And how, as Bernard said, researchers at Emory University, have found one particular fatty acid Ė DHA -- to be at critically low levels in patients with uncontrolled epilepsy. Which is why doctors recommend diets rich in
Omega-3s.

However, thereís a new nutrient that's BIGGER and better...

Itís called Salba and itís the richest source of Omega-3 fatty acids of any whole food in the history of nutrition!

In fact, gram for gram, these little granules contain 8 times more Omega-3 fatty acids than the equivalent weight of fresh Atlantic salmon.

And just two tablespoons supplies your body with lots of protein, 16 different amino acids, antioxidant vitamins like A, B2, B3, B6, C and Thiamin, along with minerals like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium Ė plus dietary fiber, 17 fatty acids and all the Omega-3s you need.

And if you donít like swallowing those huge, slimy fish oil capsules Ė- or the sawdust taste and texture of flaxseed -- thereís more good news. Salba tastes totally neutral and will take on the flavor of whatever it's mixed with. Without any gritty taste or texture.

Plus, just 2 tablespoons of Salba goes a long, long way. You can sprinkle the tiny seeds in your yogurt, cereal, shake or smoothie -- or you can grind it and blend it with flour for home-baked breads, cakes and cookies.

So Salba is clearly a win-win. Itís user friendly and easy to cook with. Plus itís got Omega-3s, flaxseed and a whole lot of other nutrients and supplements beat by a mile. See why Iíve switched over?

Hi Phyllis --

Salba is the same as chia seed (which I use), so it can be worth searching for it as chia (rather than salba) to find inexpensive sources. But I agree, it's got a lot going for it, and is easy to add to one's diet!
