Chia seeds have been a staple for native American people as early as 3500 BC. The seeds were used by the Aztec and Mayan messengers and warriors as a super energy food. Chia seeds form a ‘gel’ in the stomach which leads to slow digestion and sustained balance of sugar levels, which can be helpful in preventing or controlling diabetes. It has beneficial anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effects.
