Dubbed the miracle seed, Mila is a unique blend of chia seeds containing some of the highest levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients found on the planet today.
Mila has become famous because it has the highest level of Omega-3 available on the market today. That is important because Omega-3 is a basic nutrient our body needs to survive and it and cannot produce it on its own. Omega 3 has to come from our food if we are going to achieve optimal health. And, when we eat it our bodies recieve the anti-inflammatory benefits.
Mila is classified as whole, raw food by the FDA and it is backed by almost 20 years of scientific and agricultural research. Gram per gram, Mila has 6x more calcium than milk, 6x more protein than kidney beans and more anti-oxidents than even blueberries. Here is complete nutritional information on Mila.
How is Mila different than typical chia?
Mila is a mixture of Salvia hispanica L chia seeds specifically selected to maximize nutritional value. Of the 112 strains of chia available, the team of scientists at Lifemax selected four strains that contain the highest amount of Omega-3, antioxidents, phytonutrients, and fiber. These four strains are then tested to make sure that every batch matches the high nutritional standard. No other chia company does this. Then, it is specially cleaned to extract all bug parts, dirt or other materials. Not other company does this. Then, the outer hull of the chia is split – not ground – using a proprietary cold system to optimize the bioavailability of nutrients. Nothing is added to the product – it is a pure form of Salvia hispanica L and is simply the best available today.
Unparalleled boost in energy
My students tell me that Mila gives them an unparalleled boost in energy and in mental clarity. I find the same thing. I still eat regular chia, but I do not get similar results. Other students have told me that Mila has helped them reduce pain such as hip and low back pain. Perhaps it is the anti-inflammatory effects of Mila? I personally love Mila for its culinary uses. The consistency of Mila means that I can eat it two times per day and I can easily eat it on the road, something I would never do with regular chia. Mila is even smaller than regular chia, which means it is a great thickener and I can easily blend it into my smoothies, sauces, desserts and other culinary treats.
Mila is a whole, raw food
As such, it is gluten-free, trans-fat free, sugar-free, high in fiber and protein. It is not made in a lab and nothing has been added to it. It is a whole raw food. This chia has no distinct taste or smell and can be deliciously combined with many foods.
Excellent Source of Fiber
Mila is an excellent source of fiber which will help you achieve good digestion and maintain your blood sugar levels. Mila is an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibers which helps to keep the insides of your digestive tract smooth and moving.
Heart Health, Cholesterol Risks, Weight Management and Anti-Aging
Mila in unparalleled when it comes to heart health, cholesterol risks, weight management and anti-aging. According to the UC Berkeley Wellness Newsletter (March 2010) by forming a gelatinous mass when digested or mixed with a liquid beforehand, chia seeds may slow the absorption of sugar, help eliminate cholesterol from the body and make you feel full.” Click here to read more about the specific effects of Mila.
One bag of Mila is $55. This large bag is 16 oz and it should be a month’s supply if you take one scoop 1 – 2 times per day, which is what I recommend. FREE SHIPPING on your first order of Mila.

Cherie Soria, Victoras Kulvinskas and Brian Clement – seasoned leaders in the raw food have been endorsing Mila over chia for its nutritional benefits. Cherie recently wrote an article to explain Mila futher. Here is what she says:
Mila – A Power-packed Product for Home or Travel!
By Chef Cherie Soria, World Renowned Chef and Owner of Living Light Culinary Institute
Excerpted from the Living Light newsletter, April 2010
I rarely get excited about a new product. People send me products all the time hoping for an endorsement, or at least hoping I will carry it in the Living Light Marketplace. I am admittedly a hard sell because I can’t recommend something unless I fully embrace it in my own life. Recently a graduate of our chef and instructor program sent me a product to try and I was, as usual, skeptical – but since I trust this person, I tried it and now, I am really excited to share it with you.
The product is called Mila and it is a blend of 4 different strains of chia seeds. I have been using chia more and more lately, as I have been studying about fats and the importance of omega-3 fatty acids. Most people are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and get too much omega-6s. Even raw fooders get way too much omega-6s, since they are easily found in nuts, seeds, and fractionated oils (even raw oils), among other things. Cooked food eaters, especially those who eat oils like canola, corn, sunflower oil and baked or fried chips, crackers, cookies, and other snack foods are even more deficient in omega-3s.
I had been using regular chia seeds whole, soaked for puddings and cereal, in order to create a tapioca-like texture. I was also grinding it for things like smoothies and crackers (since I know the fatty acids are much more bio available that way) so when I was introduced to Mila, I was curious about what made this product different from the chia seeds I was already using.
What I didn’t know is that not all chia seeds are the same. Mila is a mixture of Salvia hispanica L. seed, which has been carefully selected for its nutritional value. More than 100 varieties of the seed exist. Mila contains the four most nutrient-dense strains.
These are grown at a high altitude near the equator. I had no idea that various strains of chia differed in omega-3 content or the ratio of 3s to 6s. I also didn’t know that some strains are higher in protein, calcium, iron, and other minerals and nutrients. Also, Mila is classified by the FDA as a “whole raw food” and chia is not.
After harvest, the Mila mixture is mechanically processed (micro-sliced) using a proprietary system that keeps the chia seeds from clumping. This specialized process, along with the amazing antioxidant properties of the chia seeds themselves, keeps the oils protected so shelf life is extended, and the oils do not become rancid. So, unlike flax, Mila does not require refrigeration. It has no taste or smell, and it can be deliciously combined with many foods.
In using Mila, I’ve found that it does not behave the same way that regular ground chia does – it thickens, but does not become too gelatinous, and is very pleasant and nurturing to drink even after sitting for an hour or more.
I’ve also found that unlike ground chia, I can easily use it in recipes to thicken sauces, soups, and desserts! I can “sneak” it into all kinds of foods and it reacts beautifully. From a culinary perspective, it is more adaptable, and greatly superior to regular ground chia.
At Living Light, we are now offering Mila to our students in plain water every morning (some add a drop of Stevia, but Mila is quite flavorless) and some of our students enjoy it in their smoothies. Their breakfast includes a shot of E3Live, a green smoothie made with Vitamineral Green, and a fresh green drink-even with such a nutritious breakfast, students notice a decided difference in their energy levels when they add Mila to their daily regime.
At a recent conference in Hawaii, I heard testimonials from people who have had amazing health transformations without making any changes in their diet except for adding a scoop of Mila to their juice or smoothie every day. Most people are severely deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, and these deficiencies cause all kinds of problems, from depression to insomnia and life threatening diseases. A welcome positive side effect is that most people lose significant amounts of weight as well, especially if they take Mila twice a day. My husband Dan and I are taking it twice a day and have not lost weight, since our weight is already in balance, but those with extra weight to lose will lose it!
