The Benefits of Benexia™ to be Explained at SupplySide West With Speaker/ Author Sherry Torkos

Dean Mosca, president of Proprietary Nutritionals, Inc., has announced the Vendorworks presentation entitled, “How Chia can transform your food with Omega 3s, vitamins and minerals,” led by pharmacist, speaker and author Sherry Torkos. This important event will be held at SupplySide West on Wednesday, October 22nd from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., in Galileo 903.

Torkos will discuss the power of this ancient wholesome grain, its origins, its nutrient content, and its incredible versatility in functional foods/beverages and dietary supplements. She will present the significant research findings supporting efficacy of chia seed for human health.

“Known by the Ancient Aztecs as ‘running food,’ chia seed was largely and regularly consumed to achieve benefits of superior sustained energy and endurance,” Torkos explains. “Chia is derived from the archaic Aztec word that means ‘oily’ and it is the abundant oil in the seeds that is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. It is an exceptional and easy to use source of high-quality omega 3 EFAs, fiber, protein, vitamins and calcium plus other minerals. Further, it has a higher ORAC value than fresh blueberries, making it a choice source for antioxidant protection.”

Benexia™ is the only GMP-, HACCP- and GAP-certified chia seed source for highest purity and quality. Benexia™ is available in bulk seed, sprouted seed, milled seed, flour and oil.
