One of the Healthiest Foods on Earth
Chia seeds are tiny grey coloured seeds originally from Southwestern US and Mexico. Despite their small size, they're loaded with nutrients, e.g., a balance of essential amino acids making it a good plant source of quality protein; significant amounts of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium, good for bone health, making it a boon for people who don't consume dairy products. Also, the rich fiber feeds friendly bacteria and imparts gut health. The excellent fiber may help in reducing blood sugar levels, lowering bad cholesterol, and may help in controlling body weight too by keeping the stomach full. Chia seeds are easy to use and can be incorporated into the diet by simply adding to a variety of dishes and beverages.
Chia seeds have thus boomed in popularity and found their way into peoples' kitchens across the globe.
