Our Chia Is Proudly Grown In The USA

All of our chia seeds are grown in the US (the photo above is from our Kentucky farm). Currently, chia seeds that are sold here in the US are imported from Latin America and Australia. We work closely with our farmers to ensure that we know how and where our seeds are produced, cleaned, and stored. We're also able to eliminate the middle-men along the way. Not only does this allow us to provide high-quality and traceable products, but it reduces chia's environmental impact and enables us to sell an affordable American-made product.

Kentucky Equine Research Studies Effects of Omega-3 on Osteoarthritis

May 11, 2014

An article published by Kentucky Equine Research highlights the results of some interesting studies on the effects of omega-3 on osteoarthritis. Arthritis can be a career ending issue for performance horses, and typically is treated using anti-inflammatory drugs, such as phenylbutazone (bute) and corticosteroids – both of which are associated with negative side effects from prolonged usage.Two studies were conducted, one on dogs and a second on horses, to examine how omega-3 supplementation effects animals being treated for arthritis. In the study on dogs, 109 canines with confirmed osteoarthritis received omega-3 supplementation in conjunction with the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) – carprofen.

Omega-3 Provides Nutritional Support for Kidney Function

May 04, 2014

 As an authority on horse related health issues, Kentucky Equine Research (KER) cited Omega-3 fatty acids as providing significant nutritional support for horses with kidney disease or renal failure. Some of the common drugs used to handle the symptoms of kidney disease – including anti-inflammatory drugs such as phenylbutazone – can be toxic to the kidneys, which makes the condition challenging to treat. According to the report, some clinicians are recommending Omega-3 for its natural anti-inflammatory property, which may reduce renal inflammation without the harmful side effects of drugs. Chia seeds are the highest natural known source of Omega-3.KER also identifies dehydration as a major cause and symptom of renal failure. Because chia seeds are rich in fiber, they can...
