In the June 4, 2012 issue of TIME, on page 8, there is a MAIL comment noting that the brains of humans require large amounts of omega-3 fats, especially during early childhood.
Mother’s milk concentrates these fats from the mother’s body. The problem is that given the very high amount of omega6, and the very low omega3 content of typical American diets, this tends to deprive infants of the omega-3 fats that are needed.
To alleviate this problem mothers need to cut down on their omega6 intake, and increase their omega3 intake.
The easiest way for a mother to increase the omega3 content of her diet is to consume chia. This can be done by either adding it to any food they regularly consume, or by simply consuming chia alone and then washing it down with water.
So Mothers - Have you had your chia today?®
