Anybody know where I can get a super food by the name of Salba in San Diego?

I don't mean the pill form that is sold by health companies. I mean the underlying ingredient which is the plant itself otherwise knows as [SIZE=2]Salvia Hispanica L.

[/SIZE]
Kinda like flax seed but ground up I think.

Has anyone bought some of this before? Has it made you feel more full of energy?

It's called Chia and you can buy it at health food stores, try OB Peoples.

I had to look this up because when I entered "salba" into Google I got a result for Salvia Hispanica and I did a double take thinking this was "salvia" the drug plant all the stupid hippy kids do. It turns out that is Salvia Divinorum while Salvia Hispanica just produces some seeds which people eat. They're normally sold as "Chia seeds" and a quick google search shows they're sold online plus I found a place called Sun Organic Farms in San Marcos which grows and sells chia seeds.

CHIA SEED - 1 LB Natural: Sun Organic Farm

I'm sure there are more places that's just one I turned up with about 30 seconds worth of searching using Google.

Most Mexican markets have Chia seeds. I bought some at this one market called Rodeo's in El Cajon. It's off Chase Ave
