Vitamin C contained in these seeds is about 7 times higher than the oranges, Chia seeds also have a very high anti-oxidant effect, 4 times higher than cranberry, however, they have a low content of sugar and starch, why they are also suitable for supplying subjects horses to insulin resistance, Cushing's syndrome, laminitis or metabolic disorders.

Chopped or medicinal grass flour, they are very nutritious because the plant has been cut at the optimal stage of ripeness, immediately dried at high temperature, maintaining the nutritional value of the fresh product. Recent research suggests an important role of alfalfa as an adjuvant in the treatment of gastric ulcers in association with specific drugs.
