Black chia seeds, which come from the Salvia hispanica plant, provide a great way to naturally enhance one's diet. These seeds have a long history in Mesoamerica, and were a big part of the diet in Aztec and Mayan civilizations. They were used in a number of ways. They were eaten as grain, mixed into beverages, and pressed for oil. They were so valuable that they even were used as currency and to pay tribute to gods. Today, they are considered a superfood and are popular for the health benefits they offer.
Black chia seeds are actually a combination of black, grey, and white chia seeds. While there is no proven medical difference between white and black seeds, white seeds are rarer and sometimes preferred for aesthetic reasons.
Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids. This includes what is known as alpha-linolenic acid or ALA, one of the essential fatty acids needed for human growth and development. However, it cannot be produced within the body, meaning that humans must get it from their diets. ALA is believed to reduce the effects of heart disease and other medical conditions such as high blood pressure, arthritis, and depression.
In addition to omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds are a great source of fiber and other nutrients. The USDA found that one serving of chia seed contains high concentrations of sodium, protein, calcium, phosphorus, and manganese. A single tablespoon of chia seeds is packed with lots of nutrients, which makes it one of the most nutrient-rich foods available today.
Incorporating chia seeds into one's diet in order to enjoy their nutritious effects can be done easily. It is a versatile food with a mild, nutty flavor that makes it a pleasant addition to most foods. It is best when eaten raw. You can mix it into yogurt or eat it with cereal, or add a spoonful to your regular smoothie. You can even sprinkle it on top of salads or juice. With chia seeds, the possibilities are endless.
