All You Need To Know About Chia Seeds – The Mayan Superfood

POSTEDBYLARA HEMP

Chia seeds have been enjoying their moment in the spotlight for the last few years and have become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community.

Just about all women’s magazines, stars and health professionals praise the benefits of chia seeds.

Chia seeds began being cultivated over 5000 years ago in Mexico.
Legend has it that chia seeds were an ancient superfood which gave wings to the Mayan messengers who could run all day with the help of these tiny seeds.

But are these tiny seeds as healthy as anybody says?
Against all scepticism the correct answer to that question is “yes”.

Chia seeds provide 2x more protein than eggs,
2x more fibre than oats,
5x more calcium than milk,
9x more antioxidants than oranges and
9x more omega-3 than salmon.

Wouldn’t it be great to cover so many vitamins and minerals with just one type of food?

Chia seeds can be used in a variety of different ways because of their nutty flavor and they can easily be added to a sweet or savory dish. You can enjoy chia in a muffin, in smoothies, as a chia pudding or just sprinkled on yoghurt or cereals.

You shouldn’t expect miracles of these tiny seeds, but they are great companions on the way to healthiness.
