Mila seed is often referred to as the miracle seed. This is because one of the core components of the mila seed is omega-3 fatty acids. These are acids that your body produces when it breaks down fat cells for energy. These fatty acids benefit the body in numerous ways, including lowering your cholesterol, decreasing joint pain and decreasing blood pressure. Mila is a unique blend of chia seeds or Salvia hispanica L. seed. Chia seeds grow in various altitudes and are commonly grown in countries near the equator.
