Many superfoods have attracted a lot of attention to themselves in recent years with their various nutritional benefits. One of these is the South and Central American native—the Chia seed. But as the chia's popularity increased, so did various distributors and companies. Today, there are many companies selling the dark, white and even sprouted chia seeds in both organic and conventional versions. Lifemax is one of these distributors and they have created a product called Mila (their cultivated version of the chia seed).
Lifemax is a network marketing company based in Florida. Lifemax’s mission is to “Change the Health and Wealth of the World” by sharing the healthiest whole raw food with the world and by empowering their network of independent distributors to create financial freedom for themselves and for generations to come. Their product Mila—The Miracle Seed sounds catchy and almost suspicious in that too-good-to-be-true sort of way, but the name is not far from true as the chia seed indeed has some amazing nutritional and health benefits.
Mila claims that their product is a proprietary selection of the Salvia hispanica L. plant that has been carefully selected to maximize the seed’s nutritional value. Mila claims to contain the highest levels of nutritional components, such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
