Why Chia Seeds Should Form Part of Your Pet’s Diet, AUS

Chia Seeds

Chia is a plant native to Southern Mexico and Central America and has been a part of the culture since 2600 B.C. Chia was cultivated by the Mayans and Aztecs and was an integral part of their diet. The crop was so valuable that it was used as a form of currency and gained mythical status through stories of ancient warriors who consumed a tablespoon of the crop before going into battle.

At Crooked Lane, we are proud to supply our customers with this high quality, ancient superfood which is associated with health benefits in horses and other animals.

Benefits of Chia Seeds for Horses

Some of the more common benefits associated with Crooked Lane’s chia seeds for horses are discussed below.

Omega Fatty Acids

Chia seeds are regarded as an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and play an important role in regulating numerous bodily functions such as:

  • Immune systems performance.
  • Skin and coat health in horses.
  • Joint function and reduced inflammation in joints.
  • Brain development and cognitive performance.
  • Eye development.

Chia Seed is the highest plant source ratio (3:1) of omega 3 to 6 essential fatty acids.


Chia seeds are rich in soluble fibres which are easy to digest and absorb water, omega-3 fatty acids, high quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants. Soluble fibres play an important role in metabolic function and help to regulate insulation function and blood sugar. The fibres are easily fermented by the digestive tract, potentially promoting better gut bacterial health.


Black chia seeds for horses could be the ideal way to manage free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in animals. Oxidative stress is a key contributor in the onset of disease and leads to early signs of aging.

Antioxidants such as quercetin, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid and myricetin may help to protect the liver and heart.
