Why are seeds so nutritious? When you think about it, seeds contain all the starting materials necessary to develop into complex plants. It makes complete sense. Any of our tasty, organic, super seeds are packed with the nutrition you need to get you through your day!

Potential Health Benefits of Super Seeds

Seeds are great sources of fiber. They also contain healthy monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and many important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Here are some highlights of how adding them to a healthy diet can improve your health:

  • Omega-3s: The omega-3 fatty acid content in some seeds (e.g. flax, chia, and hemp), particularly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), can help reduce inflammation. Many diseases are correlated with systemic inflammation in the body including diabetes, heart disease, high levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, depression, arthritis, eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions. It’s important to note that some seeds, such as flax, need to be ground in order for the body to absorb the omega-3s from their hard fibrous outer shell.

  • Fiber: Super-seeds are high in fiber. The obvious benefit of this is that the fiber helps your digestion and colon by keeping things… (ahem) moving. But also, consuming more fiber can help keep you fuller for longer, reduce blood sugar after consuming a meal, reduce LDL cholesterol and other risk factors of heart disease.

  • Lignans: This antioxidant polyphenol is found in seeds like flax and sesame. Lignans are phytoestrogens. For women, low lignan levels in the body is associated with heart disease and breast cancer. In postmenopausal women, lignans can improve sex hormone status for estrogen and lower total blood cholesterol.

  • Protein: Seeds are a great source of protein. In fact, hemp seeds are one of the few plants that are complete protein sources, meaning they contain all the essential amino acids that your body can't make. The benefits of protein is that it provides your body with amino acids -- the “building blocks of life”. Amino acids occur in all body tissues and play an essential role in the processes that control our physical and mental functions. Also, adding more protein to your diet helps to control appetite and blood sugar levels after a meal.

  • Food sensitivities: For those sensitive to wheat or gluten, seeds can be a great substitute. Quinoa and buckwheat - yes, they’re seeds, not grains - can be made into a savoury or sweet dish. And chia pudding can be a great alternative to overnight oats. For those who are sensitive to nuts, seeds make a great alternative, providing similar nutrient benefits with that satisfying crunch.

How to Enjoy Super Seeds

  • Consider adding some seeds over your morning bowl of oatmeal, cereal, yogurt.

  • Add them to protein shakes, smoothies.

  • Sprinkle them over top of cooked vegetables or your salads.

  • Add to smoothies, or fruit / vegetable juices.

  • Add to baked goods or desserts.

  • Spread on to toast with nut butter.

  • Sprinkle in sandwiches or wraps.

  • Add to a trail mix.

  • Make your own super seed butter (pumpkin, sunflower, or hemp seed butter are super tasty).

  • Quinoa can be cooked as a side dish, made into burgers, or as a stuffing.

  • Chia seeds and buckwheat can be ground into flour using a food processor or high power blender, and used in any baked goods as a wheat flour substitute.

  • Buckwheat can be cooked to make a porridge, savory side dish, stuffing or pancakes.

Seeing as each seed has its own unique “superpowers”, it’s best to enjoy a whole variety. These small versatile morsels pack a power punch of nutrients that can be added to almost anything. It makes it easy to have a serving of super seeds every day!
