Chia seeds derive from Sachia and are grown in Mexico and South America.

The Aztecs and Mayans already knew the unique qualities of this plant and used it as a staple food believing it gave them special power and energy. Guess what?! They were right!

To this day, chia seeds affect the mind and the body as they regulate the digestive system, provide energy, long term performance and concentration, balance, wellbeing and tons of vitality.

It makes no difference whether they are white or black as their nutritional value is the same: rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and proteins.

They have a tremendous swelling ability as they absorb 7 to 12 times as much water in proportion to their own weight.

The end result is that the body is supplied with energy for a long time, the blood sugar level is regulated and the advantage of this is that the feeling of fullness lasts longer and your food cravings disappear.

No more mid-day sugary and fatty snacking!!!

Thus energy is released into the body slowly and over a long period of time.

They also support the normal functioning of the heart and maintain cholesterol levels in the blood.

In addition, because of the high fibre content, chia seeds also help digestion and the bowel movement.

Therefore get out there and start trying something new, positive, healthy and notice the benefits it will offer you at both short and long term.
