I wasn’t too familiar with Chia Seeds until my nutritionist introduced me to them and their amazing health benefits. Did you know they’re:
Nutritious. Chia seed provides ample calcium and protein to your tissues. The seeds are also rich in boron, which helps the body assimilate and use calcium. The nutrients also support proper brain functioning.
Water loving. The seed can soak up ten times its weight in water. When inside your body, the seeds help you stay hydrated longer, and retain electrolytes in your bodily fluids.
Energy enhancing. The health pioneer Paul Bragg did an experiment an endurance hike with friends. They divided up into a chia-eating group and another group, who ate whatever they wanted. The group eating only chia seeds finished the hike four hours, twenty seven minutes before the others, most of whom didn’t even finish at all.
Slimming and trimming. Yes, the seeds will help you lose weight, for two reasons. The first reason is that they are so filling, you’ll eat less of other foods. The second reason is that they actually bulk up and cleanse your body of old “junk” in your intestines.
Endurance enhancing. Chia seeds are known as the “Indian Running Food”. Also, the ancient Aztec warriors used chia seed during their conquests.
Regenerating. After eating, the nutrients travel to the cells very quickly due to the ease in digestion and assimilation. Use them when you want to build or regenerate healthy body tissue.
Here is my Amazing Chia Seed Breakfast. It’s so easy!
Boil 1 cup of water and add 2 tbsp of Chia Seeds. Mix well until the consistency resembles a jelly. Pour into a serving bowl and add 1 tbsp of coconut flakes and half a cup of blueberries (and any other berries you like). Enjoy!
