Chia seeds are now very popular among the vocabulary of people who are into a healthy and active lifestyle. Research and experience supports the benefits acquired from the chia due to their components of amino acids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Out of the above-mentioned elements found in the chia seed that is now widely produced commercially in countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Bolivia, Argentina and Australia, we now know that the chia can provide the following health benefits: high fiber to help avoid digestive troubles such as diarrhea, constipation, bowel discomfort, irritable colon, and bloating; builds muscles due to the seeds' easy digestion and absorption thereby resulting to quick transportation of nutrients to the tissues when needed especially in the cases of athletes under rigorous training or during recovery periods from injuries or illnesses; builds energy and endurance: Aztecs in the past rely on the seeds to sustain them for the rest day during long hunting trips and when at war with other tribes; high in Omega 3 for the reduction of cholesterol deposits in the body; balances electrolytes due to its ability to hold up to 10 times its weight in water thereby maintaining the body's electrolyte balance and enhance bowel regulation; ideal for slimming or losing weight because drinking a fresh fruit juice for example mixed with the seeds or sprinkling it onto your meal can decrease the craving for snacks; and lastly, healing properties help repair wounds, and be cured from colds, sore throats, upset stomachs, and constipation.

Chia seeds are beneficial to the pregnant. During pregnancy, it is inevitable to lose some nutrients in the body as the baby absorbs the nutrients from the mother's food. In order to replenish lost nutrients, having the seeds mixed with your drinks and meals is vital.

Also, for children who have the tendency to choose what foods they want to eat, having the chia as a part of the household meals can assure you that your children are supplemented with all the nutrients they need to grow active, healthy and strong.
