We have the Mesoamerican culture to thank for discovering and cultivating these tiny seeds. Little did they know they developed a superfood for their grateful descendants.
Aztecs and Mayans ate these seeds for sustained energy. The Mayan word “chia” means “strength.” They are one of the healthiest foods on the planet; rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, essential amino acids and soluble fiber. This macronutrient power is packed into a microsized seed that can absorb 10-12 times its weight in water - something its many fans say makes them feel fuller and eat less.

Chia Seeds (Salvia hispanica) were favorites of the Aztecs. Actually from a flowering plant in the mint family, they worked their way into spiritual ceremonies and shamans' medicine bags due to their array of healing attributes. Today, Chia Seeds are one of the most popular natural remedies for everything from digestive aid to heart health.
