Chia seeds contain around 30% oil.  Chia oil is made by cold-pressing raw chia seeds and then lightly filtering.  

This oil is high in polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs), 12g.  The PUFAs are 62% omega-3,  making a perfect omega-6:omega-3 ratio of 1:3.  Chia oil contains more omega-3 than whole seeds.

Omega-3 helps reduce inflammation and protect your cells from free radical molecules that damage their growth and decrease their lifespan.  Similar to the way oxidation can cause rust on our cars, free radicals cause oxidation, rust, in your cells.  Healthy cells equal healthy life.

It’s high level of omega-3s contributes to its #7 remix ranking.
