What Is Chia Seed?
Health awareness is increasing everywhere and so is the demand for healthy foods. Arguably, prepackaged and processed food unnecessarily pollute the can-be-simple process of providing our bodies with nutrition. In response, many people look to whole, raw foods that have traditional appreciation. If you wish to avoid lab-experiment food, then just ask yourself, what did people eat before they started eating attractively packaged baked goo made from test tube ingredients?That’s a question with many answers, and one such answer is chia seeds. Chia seeds are a traditional food in central and south America and, yes, these are the same seeds known for the association with the Chia Pet. But more than an answer to ceramic statue baldness, chia seeds are very nutritious and loaded with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Chia seeds come from the chia plant, which is native to Mexico and Guatemala. The scientific names of the plant are salvia hispanica and salvia columbariae. They both belong to the mint family (Lamiaceae). Chia seeds look similar to sesame seeds. They are very small and dark. This plant has been known to humans for a long time. The chia plant had been cultivated by the Aztecs, Mayans, Incans and other tribes for a long time. It was a staple food for them and historians considered it an important plant and food source for Native Americans. With the fall of the Aztecs and the general decline in the native population in the North American region, the use of chia seeds also declined.

The idea is that “carb loading” will increase the amount of glycogen (energy) in your muscles. Obviously if you’ve got a big competition or strenuous event, you want to make sure your gas tank is full. But, pasta is heavy in carbs and sugars, is loading up on that stuff the only way to have enough available energy? The essential fatty acids contained in Chia seeds helps to boost metabolism. The seeds are sometimes added to food to provide bulk and nutrients Whilst adding very few calories. For these reasons, Chia useful in weight loss and weight maintenance.

Your energy levels have a lot to do with what you eat. Chia is one of nature’s highest plant-based sources of complete protein.
