What are Omega-3 fatty acids?

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can’ t make them — you have to get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut, other seafood including algae and krill, some plants, and nut oils. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function, as well as normal growth and development. They may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing vision and nerve problems. Symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.

Why do I need it?

The typical American diet tends to contain 14 – 25 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids, this imbalance can create many health issues. As Sally Fallon states, when we eat refined vegetable oils (which are a staple in the American diet) it forms trans-fat, which causes heart disease and hormone imbalance. High levels of  omega-6 fatty acids disrupt metabolism because they replace saturated fat and omega-3 fatty acids.

Sara’s Advice:

  • Ditch your refined vegetable oils!
  • Stick to butter, olive oil (in small doses) and coconut oil.
  • Eat a diet HIGH in omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids are founds in leafy greens, egg yolk, fish, and grass fed meat and dairy products.
  • Considering the fact that 95% of Americans do not get enough omega-3s on a daily basis, Mila is a must!
  • Just one scoop of Mila a day provides you with 3,000 mg of omega-3s. See the chart below:

Mila vs. Chia

Many people have reported significant health upgrades consuming Mila that they did not receive while eating other chia seed brands, including us!

How is MILA different than other Chia nutritionally?

There are over 100 varieties of chia seeds.  Most of the chia brands on the market are mass produced and not tested for specific nutritional values, variety or potency, not thoroughly cleaned, and not all harvested at their peak of nutrition. MILA seeds are mostly grown on small farms close to the equator where the soil is very mineral rich, and the climate and elevation is perfect to produce the most nutrient dense seeds.  Lifemax independently tests each crop to ensure that every bag of MILA has the varieties that are the highest in Omega-3′s, protein, fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals.  Not only is the Mila blend hand selected, it is also meticulously cleaned to ensure there are no stems, weed seeds or unripened seeds.

How does Lifemax open the Seeds?

Lifemax is the only company that uses a proprietary cold fracturing system to open the seeds, making them easier to digest and much more bio-available -meaning the nutrients absorb easily and are utilized by our body to continuously heal and bring balance on a cellular level.  Oftentimes, whole seeds do not break down easily and therefore they move through our system without being absorbed and utilized for their powerful nutritional qualities.  Seeds that are ground in large quantities (such as ground chia sold in stores) can heat up during the grinding process which destroys enzymes (life force), causing oxidation and tremendous loss of nutrients.
