chiaHey there! its been a few days since my last post, but I’m back with a new super food for all my blog readers. Do you remember Chia pet? You know, sprinkle some water on a sheep statue and watch it grow overnight into a little green furry plant. Well I found out that those little seeds are more magical then just quick plant growth.

Chia has been in use for at least 3,000 years. Located in central America it was a favorite of the Aztec warriors, who would consume the seeds right before battle or a long run for its endurance capabilities. Chia is the richest and only unprocessed whole food source of Omega 3. I also found out that it is a complete protein with a soluble fiber that forms a gel that slows sugar absorption in your blood stream. Chia aids in digesting by removing toxin and eliminating waste.

Chia is great for your body. High in Calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc. I have been using Chia for a month and have notice higher energy levels, especially in the gym.

You can pick up some at your local vitamin shoppe or health food store, then after you try it let me know how it affect your performance in the gym or just everyday life.
