The Central America ancient empires’ culture would reverence to chia seeds as a vital food. The reason why chia seed are so beneficial is because they are very rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
When correctly prepared, they are very easy to digest. It is a very versatile ingredient that can be easily added to a multitude of recipes. It can be combined with yoghurt, oat flour, smoothies or even as a substitute for the eggs when baking.
Currently, it is one of the most complete ‘superfoods’ due to its high content of fiber, antioxidants, calcium, proteins, and fatty acids. Therefore, it is perfect to counteract the harmful side effects produced by the free radicals: it fights against premature aging effects and the cellular oxidation, improving the gastrointestinal transit and keeping the musculoskeletal system healthy.
Likewise, chia seeds are ideal to help losing weight since it provides an important amount of fatty acids that allow our body to eliminate accumulated fat.
