The Chia Seed is an amazing food. For centuries many have used the seeds for
a host of different reasons. Native Americans would take a pouch of seeds and
a gourd of water on their trips. The seeds were their food source and taken with
the water and they thought that it would hydrate their bodies for endurance.
When you hydrate the seeds in water the seeds shell opens up and absorbs up to
nine times its volume in water. This then forms a gel, which is called Chia Seed
Gel. It is said that the gel has the potential to help keep your body hydrated.
The gel is also 90% soluble fiber, which may be beneficial for your digestive
track. Many people say that they use the seeds when they are involved in sports
or physical activities for endurance.
The seeds have twice the protein of any other seed or grain, five times the
calcium of milk, boron which is trace mineral that helps transfer calcium into
your bones, omega 3 and omega 6 which are essential oils for the body. They also
have a very long list of valuable nutrients in them naturally. The soluble fiber
in the gel forms a wall between carbohydrates and the body, releasing them slowly
into the body. Dieters love the seeds because it can be added to any food or
drink in a ratio of 75% to the volume of food or drink and will not change the
taste. Because the carbohydrates are released slowly you may get the feeling
of being full. Many use the seeds as a way to control their appetites.
