Superfood Recipes With Chia Seeds

Superfood Recipes With Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are tiny black seeds from the plant Salvia hispanica, which is related to the mint. They were an important food for the Aztecs and Mayans back in the day. In fact, “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength.”

Loaded with various nutrients, studies suggest that have important health benefits for your brain and body, such as:

  1. Chia Seeds are packed with nutrients and only a few calories. They contain fiber, protein, fat, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.
  2. They are loaded with antioxidants.
  3. They can help in losing weight.
  4. Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
  5. They may lower the risk of heart disease.
  6. They may reduce blood sugar levels and chronic inflammation.
  7. They improve digestion and cleanse the colon.

Consider adding chia seeds to your diet. They are truly worthy to be called a superfood.
