The ancient seed that outperforms modern-day superfoods.
The Aztecs, Mayans, and Native Americans all shared a “secret food of the gods.” It was the tiny chia seed—a real superfood by today’s standards. In terms of antioxidant value, this super seed packs more of a nutritional punch than acai, pomegranate, artichoke, or blueberries. No wonder the fearless Aztecs could subsist on just a couple of handfuls during their mile long treks as they conquered Central America!
Energize, Halt Hunger, and Get Moving with Chia
Today, there’s a lot more we know about this legendary super seed. For one thing, it is a complete source of vegetarian protein providing all the necessary amino acids to fuel muscles and build up tissue strength.
Chia seeds are extremely nutrient dense, containing nearly 50 energizing nutrients in one small seed. They are gluten-free and very abundant in vitamin C, protein, minerals, essential fatty acids, and fiber. The soluble fiber content of chia—about 11 grams in just one ounce, to be exact—is more than one third of the USDA recommended daily amount. Chia makes you feel full for hours and can absorb more than 10 times its volume in water so that you can fill up on fewer calories!
It is also a magic bullet for regulating the bowels and can start to work in just one day. Whether you are constipated or too loose, chia can balance all types of gut grief and calm your colon.
And if that weren’t enough good news, one ounce of chia yields about 5 grams of omega-3s, making it the highest source of omega-3s gram to gram of any of the omega-3 rich foods—including flaxseed and salmon. We all know by now how vital omega-3 is in supporting healthy cardiovascular function. In fact, research at the University of Arizona finds that chia lowers triglyceride levels and raises healthy (HDL) cholesterol levels. Most interesting of all for you “waist watchers,” a study in the British Journal of Medicine shows that the omega-3 fats in chia reduce belly fat.
The Mineral Rich Wonder
What most impresses me about chia is that it’s an all-in-one source of minerals, Mother Nature’s natural enzyme co-factors. Just one ounce will give you nearly 200 mg of calcium—making this the highest vegetable source of this macro mineral—easily trumping 1 cup of whole milk, which is allergenic to half the world’s population. And that’s not all. Chia is loaded with magnesium, potassium, and zinc!
The 21st Century Wonder Food
After searching world wide for the highest quality chia, I asked my official distributor to make this available to my Fat Flush readers. The result: UNI KEY’s Whole Chia Seeds—which has the NSRI Seal of Approval. This certification guarantees that the chia is grown under the highest safety and purity standards, with complete traceability. The harvesting and cleaning process assures both you and your family of a 99.8% pure product.
Since chia doesn’t need to be refrigerated or ground up to release their spectacular nutritional benefits, they are one of the best foods to stock up in case of any natural disaster—because like the ancient Aztecs, you cannot just survive, but thrive on them.
I recommend at least two to three tablespoons per day. Some people need even more, like four tablespoons per day. Add them to your smoothies (right at the end so they don’t bulk up your blender), as well as soups, stews, dressings, eggs, and veggies.
This is one ancient secret you will want to share with everyone who deserves the perfect food.
