Raw Organic Chia Seeds, 8 oz - Navitas Naturals

Chia comes from the desert plant Salvia Hispanic, a member of the mint family.  The seeds can be either black or white and both types are highly nutritious.  Originally grown in Mexico and the Southwest between 1500 and 910 B.C., Chia seeds were an important part of the Aztec and Mayan diet.  Aztec warriors used Chia as their main source of fuel during conquests.

These little seeds are incredibly nutritious, with significant concentrations of protein, fiber and several essential minerals.  They are also high in Omega-3, antioxidants, B-Vitamins, calcium, and boron. Chia seeds are a great food for runners.  Because they absorb ten times their weight in water as they expand, the water will then be released slowly and evenly into your system. This allows for maximum hydration, which is key when running long distances, during marathons or especially in high heat, where runners lose more and more fluids through their sweat.

There are so many good reasons to start eating chia seeds right away, some of which include:

-Omega-3's -  They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids (the vital fats that protect against inflammation such as arthritis and heart disease).

-Help with weight loss -  Fight hunger by mixing chia seeds with water. They form a coating of gel, increasing its size and weight.  Since the gel is made from water, it has no calories. This helps your body to think it™s full, without adding any calories.

-Help your concentration and improve your mood -  Chia is an excellent source of essential fatty acids, which are crucial for concentration and other brain functions.

Benefits of Chia Seeds:

  • Increasing energy levels
  • Cleanse the colon
  • Lowering risk of heart disease
  • Prolongs hydration
  • Helps IBS
  • Balance blood sugar
  • Prevent cravings

Chia seeds can increase your digestive health because they have both soluble fiber(which forms the outer gel), and insoluble fiber. Both types of fiber are healthy for the digestive system.  The insoluble fiber helps cleanse the intestinal tract and the soluble fiber can act as a prebiotic and feed the good bacteria in your digestive system.

It™s very easy to incorporate chia seeds, and should be considered part of your everyday diet.  You can add chia seeds to just about anything.  Try sprinkling them on salads, adding them to your smoothies, yogurts, energy bars, and desserts.  You can also make the chia seed gel and eat it all by itself with a spoon.  To make the gel,  add 1 or 2 T of chia seeds to 1 c. of liquid like water or fresh fruit or vegetable juice.  Slowly stir the chia seeds in water, juice, or nut milk, let sit for 15 minutes, and stir again.
