Chia seeds were cultivated and eaten by the ancient Aztecs, Incans, and Mayans and was considered a staple food alongside corn and beans. Long distance runners such as the Tarahumara tribe of Mexico’s Copper Canyon are revered to run more than 100 miles and use Chia seeds as their staple source of energy.
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
