Chia Seeds is a part of the mint family and originally comes from Mexico, where it has been used for thousands of years in cooking. The ancient Aztecs and Mayans used to eat chia seeds before entering into battle or when they needed to walk for longer periods.

The current raw and organic movement has given us two important things: the knowledge that there are so many existing health foods from all over the world; and access to these superfoods— such as chia seeds—that previously, only other people were enjoying. It wasn’t that long ago when premium chia seeds were found only in corner shelves of small health food stores. Now, thanks to a lot of research about its benefits, chia seeds, are one of the most popular superfoods around.

What is it?

Chia seed is an herb that comes from the chia plant. This flowering plant of the mint family produces tiny, oily seeds—chia seeds—that are similar to flaxseeds. The chia plant is native to Guatemala, Southern Mexico and South America where it has been cultivated for more than 4,000 years.

At the beginning, chia seeds were cultivated only for equine feed. Later on, the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas discovered that its health benefits also extend to humans. And so, they grew the plant for human consumption. They ate the seeds as grain, drank as a beverage when mixed with water, and ground into flour to make bread. It was considered it as an important staple food crop.

But most importantly, because of its tremendous health-enhancing properties, chia seeds have also been used as a medicine—to heal wounds, increase stamina and boost respiratory health. All these things made chia seeds a highly valued crop by ancient civilizations, one even more precious than gold.

What are its nutritional content and health benefits?

There’s a reason for all current buzz around raw organic chia seeds—chia seed benefits are almost endless. Research in Canada and the US found these tiny seeds are helpful in improving a long list of health problems.

A single ounce of natural chia seeds provides more omega-3 fatty acids than that of salmon. Omega-3 fatty acids—also called polyunsaturated fatty acids—help lower cholesterol, supports people with type 2 diabetes and also boost memory and brain power.

It is an excellent protein source for people looking to get this nutrient without eating meat or animal products. It’s no wonder people all over the world are into raw organic chia seeds.

How to use chia seeds in food? Chia seeds can be enjoyed in food in so many ways—in cakes, smoothies, jams, salads, savory food and practically anything you can think of. Compared to flax seeds, chia seeds are incredibly versatile.

How do Chia Seeds help with weight loss and detox?

Chia Seeds slow down the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and avoid peaks in blood sugar levels thus leaving you feeling satisfied for longer. On top of that Chia seeds are covered with a layer of water-soluble fibre that swells up when wet, adding “volume” to meals without adding more calories to your body. This explains why eating chia can satisfies hunger and lets you feel full for a longer time. These fibres also help to rinse your intestines of toxins and allow your body to detoxify. The conclusion is that chia seeds are excellent for weight loss!
