"Chia is a harvested, unprocessed, nutty-tasting, nutrient-dense whole grain with omega-3 fatty acids and has among the highest antioxidant activity of any whole food," according to a posting by Dr. Mehmet Oz on the website for his syndicated television talk show, The Dr. Oz Show ( And most recently, on his September 22, 2010 show, Dr. Oz listed chia as the #2 brain food that fights Alzheimer. The episode indicates that Chia seeds are "high in omega-3 fatty acids and have been found to keep the arteries of the brain clear of plaque. They nourish the brain by helping communication between brain cells". (

"In January, Dr. Oz sat on Oprah [Winfrey's daily talk show] and started talking about chia seed, and I went to the shelves at GNC [General Nutrition Center] and I saw they just got wiped out," Greacen says.

He adds that he jumped on that "wave of information" and informed customers that Nature's Chemistry mills chia seed into flour and has been continuing to spread the chia wealth since!

Nature's Chemistry receives its chia seeds for milling from Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, and Mexico. Along with being the largest supplier of chia in North America, the company is making huge strides with their own retail product, "Running Food."

Greacen says the Aztec Indians called chia seed "running food," and it was something they "treated like gold." Greacen chose the name for the product because the phrase "cut right to the core and essence of what this product is and the history behind it," he says. The brand was available, and Nature's Chemistry trademarked it and uses a website ( to promote the product from the manufacturer direct to the consumer.
