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.
