CHIA SEEDS

Chia Seeds

Used centuries ago by the Mayan and Incan Warriors, chia seeds are packed with nutrients. These warriors would carry chia seeds in a pouch attached to their belts, and eat 1 Tbsp for a day’s worth of energy.

Today, runners and triathletes use them, as scientific studies have shown that Chia seeds are as energy-boosting as Gatorade and Power Drinks.

Chia seeds are especially loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids, which reduce chronic inflammation, like arthritis and heart disease. They are loaded with B Vitamins and minerals, like selenium. Especially

beneficial is the fact that Chia Seeds are loaded with fiber, which SUPPORTS FAT LOSS, and cleanses the colon. Think of Chia Seeds as you stool softener.

Also, Chia seeds are the highest source of plant-based protein, as is Spirulina, another super food.

For an immediate burst of energy, mix Chia seeds with coconut oil and a drop of peppermint oil.
