    Hi Kerrie
    Any more info available?

    Thanks for your questions.

    Firstly my wife Kerrie is using it on her performance horses, as well as broodies and foals all with great results.
    Some of the people who have been buying it in Victoria are owners with minis, show horses, OTT racehorses,pony club horses and racehorse trainers from Melbourne.

    We have a testimonials page on our website Welcome and that will also tell you what success these people have been having with 'chia'.
    The website has plenty of info on stuff like insulin resistence, ulcers and more.

    This is a quote from Dr. Weil is clinical professor of medicine at the University of Arizona and director of its Program in Integrative Medicine.

    "Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D?"These healthful, edible seeds are a better source of omega-3 fatty acids than flaxseed. In pre-Columbian times, chia seeds were a component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors; they even played a role in religious ceremonies. Supposedly, 1 tablespoon of the seeds could sustain a person for 24 hours. The Aztecs also used chia medicinally to relieve joint pain and skin conditions." Dr. Weil is clinical professor of medicine at the University of Arizona and director of its Program in Integrative Medicine."

    This seed is massive in America and is backed by many vets and nutritionists over there, which we have been selling for the last few years. Only recently we have given the vets the products here in Australia, and are awaiting there support for this miracle seed, which we are positive the vets will back us as they have done so in America.
    Its been a slow process here getting the seed into Australia due to AQIS, approx 2 years!!

    Hope some of this info helps, but feel free to contact us at any time

    are there different grades of Chia seed?
    It seems to be cheaper on Ebay- is that because they are selling an inferior product?

    Do you have any testimonials from performance horses?
    Is the seed totally non-swabbable?

    (sorry if these seem like silly questions- couldnt find the answers on your website :eek: )

    Not silly questions at all.

    Some chia seeds are grown in different regions but the best chia seed comes out of the ORIGINAL source in Sth America. Which has the highest levels of omega 3 and 6 and all essential nutients and vitamins. Ours is also the only ORGANIC CHIA in the WORLD.
    So yes the ones sold on ebay are inferior

    All the testimonials on the website page are from performance horses, well most anyway

    yes the seed is totally non swabable here in Australia and also in America

    Hope this helps

    Sage - a common herb, found in many foods and herb mixes, is a salvia. Salvia officionalis **)

    Woah the Chia seed seems to be able to do a hell of alot where as most seeds or grains specifically target few area's.
    Can I ask what the chia seed is most specifically used for (works best for?)

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Great question, this is why the 'chia seed' is so unique compared to others seeds, and that is why they call it a super food.
    People mainly use Chia for the omega 3 & 6 properties to help with coats, anti inflamatory properties, stomach ulcers etc etc.
