Raw Organic Chia Seeds Information

 

Chia, (latin name Salvia hispanica) is a species of flowering plant native to central and southern Mexico, Guatemala, Bolivia, and south-west USA, and are thought to have been used as a food from as early as 3500BC.

These tiny little chia seeds were cultivated by the Aztecs in pre-Columbian times to provide them with radiant health, endurance and boundless energy, and were used medicinally to relieve joint pain and skin conditions. A component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and as a basic survival ration of Aztec warriors- a one tablespoon serving could supposedly sustain a person for 24 hours- and even played a role in religious ceremonies.

Chia seeds have a high content of essential fatty acids (EFAs), containing the highest plant source of omega-3 (alpha- linolenic acid) on the planet- with only a 15 gram (11⁄2 tablespoon) serving of chia containing equal to a 250 gram serving of salmon. Chia also have twice the protein of any other seed or grain, five times the calcium of milk, the trace mineral boron which helps transfer calcium into bones as well as a long list of other valuable nutrients. As a complete protein, chia contains 19-23 percent protein with all nine essential amino acids. Chia seeds also boast more antioxidants than blueberries and contain large amounts of B vitamins, and prove to be an excellent source of the minerals calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, boron, manganese, potassium, sodium, iron and zinc.
