We are excited to share with you our source for Organic Heirloom Quality Chia Seeds. Chia seeds were one of the most treasured seeds of the Aztecs. They called them the "running food" because they slowly convert carbohydrates into sugar, stabilizing metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows, creating a longer duration in their fueling effects.
One of the exceptional qualities of the Chia seed is its hydrophilic properties, having the ability to absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. Its ability to hold on to water offers the ability to prolong hydration.
Chia seeds are high in iron, boron, EFA's and fiber. Chia seeds also contain protein. The Chia seed is a muscle and tissue builder and an energizer of endurance with extensive hydration properties.
Try placing them dry in a bowl and cover with 10 times the amount of filtered water, leaving them to soak overnight. The next morning, you will notice they are gelatinous. Mix with dried and fresh fruit to make your own morning "cereal".
