Chia Seeds 100g from The Superfood Grocer
Chia seeds come from the Salvia Hispanica plant which is native to South America. It was revered by ancient Mayans and Aztecs, who ate the seeds soaked in water as fuel for their long distance runs. Chia Seeds are high in protein and fiber; they are also a good source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, calcium, and iron.
Chia is high in omega-3 which is good for heart health and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. It also helps lower blood sugar and cholesterol.
Both the gelling action of the seed, and the unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber combine to slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars. If you eat chia with a meal, it will help you turn your food into constant, steady energy rather than a series of ups and downs that wear you out.
Chia seeds help also speed in recovery from exercise and can effectively replenish minerals used in muscle contractions and lost in sweat.
