Probably the best superfood that you can get (lose weight easily too!).

 

Chia is a tiny, tasteless seed that you can add to any food to top up on important nutrients like OMEGA 3, Fibre, Protein and Antioxidants.

 

Chia or Salvia Hispanica (it's Latin name) is a plant with purple or white flowers that is native to Mexico and Central America. Its seeds which are black or white in colour are harvested because of their impressive nutrient profile. These seeds are then used by individuals looking to boost their nutrition the easy way.

 

Ancient Superfood of the Aztecs:

 

The Aztecs and Mayans used the seeds as currency and offered it to their gods in ceremonies. Used for wounds, colds and sore throats, upset stomachs, body odours, prostate problems and constipation, Chia was worshipped for its health benefits.

 

However, when the Spanish Conquistadors arrived and banished Chia, the seed disappeared, and it hasn't resurfaced until recently.

 

The Tarahumara Indians

 

Even though the Spanish invaders tried their hardest to abolish Chia, it did survive in small clusters of tribes that managed to escape the Spanish onslaught. One such tribe was the Tarahumara Indians of the Copper Canyon in Mexico. They are legendary for their long-distance running ability and are known to annoy Nike who sponsors marathons across the US when they breeze past ultra marathoners wearing only sandals and chewing on Chia seeds!

 

Chia seeds are also helping lots of people to lose weight, because you feel full for hours after taking them.
