Chia seeds are a member of the Salvia Hispanica Family and were a prized food to the ancient Aztecs and Mayans. Chia is the ancient Mayan word for strength. Chia seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, known for anti- inflammatory and liver protective properties. They are loaded with calcium, magnesium, and manganese as well as protein and fibre and a host of antioxidants including; quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin. They are similar to flaxseeds with the added advantage of being far less prone to rancidity. A true Food Superhero.
