Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an edible seed with an important history. Chia seeds were a vital crop of the Mayan and Aztec diets due to uncharacteristically high amounts of protein and nutrient content. Commonly used as a food staple, Chia was also used as a key ration for Aztec warriors during times of war. It was known for its ability to sustain energy requirements to warriors in times of duress and demand. Historians suggest that Chia seeds were one of the four major grains of commerce in pre-Columbus history and more recent findings suggest that it was also used medicinally for the relief of minor joint pain and skin conditions. Chia seeds are rich in several key nutrients such as protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium and niacin, to name a few. Even more impressive is its content of alpha-linolenic acid (also called ALA) an essentialomega-3 fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are given the term “essential” due to the fact that the human body cannot manufacture them and therefore must be obtained from our diet. Chia seeds containmore ALA than any other seed and almost twice the amounts found.Gaia Herbs' Mission
