In time for National Heart Month, Botanic Choice has added two new heart-healthy Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) to its product line. Plant-based Chia Seed Oil and fish-based Krill Oil are rich in Omega 3s, easily digestible, and have a long shelf life.
Chia …It’s not just for growing "hair"
You've seen the commercials. Clay planters shaped like dogs, cats and rabbits that miraculously grow "hair" when you add water. The secret? The rapid-growing chia seed.
A nutritious ancient food from Central America, chia seeds are small and oval-shaped with a nutty flavor. Chia is a Mayan word for strength, and for 3,000 years that's exactly what it’s been used for. Aztec warriors carried chia with them to keep themselves strong for battle. Recently health experts have turned their attention to its nutritious oil which contains over 60% Omega 3 fatty acids. And since Chia Seed Oil is plant-sourced, it's ideal for vegetarians.
Krill oil…No fishy aftertaste
From cold water oceans like Antarctica, krill is the food of whales and seals. Unlike other fish oils, krill oil is digested in the small intestines, not the stomach, so there's no fishy aftertaste and it’s highly "deliverable" so your body can put it to work. Krill oil is especially high in EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids to support heart and cholesterol health.
According to President Tim Cleland, "With the economic downturn, people are trying to take better care of themselves with supplements in order to potentially avoid expensive office visits. One of the newest trends is with EFAs because they multi-task by benefiting the heart, digestion, brain and even hair and skin."
