Chia seeds are one of the most popular superfoods ever because of how nutritious they are. By weight, these seeds have the highest nutritional content of any other grain. They are also super low in calories and carbs.

Chia seeds are especially high in fiber, which means they are good for digestion and gut health. Fiber promotes healthy bacteria that are necessary for a healthy gut.
Including chia seeds in your diet may lower your risk of heart disease, as they contain the antioxidant quercetin. This antioxidant is also an anti-inflammatory that controls blood sugar, kills free radical cells, and fights heart disease.
Chia seeds also help with weight loss by helping speed up your metabolism and making you feel more full due to them expanding to almost 10 times their original size during digestion.
These seeds are packed with zinc, magnesium, manganese, and calcium, which are all important minerals that promote healthy bones and a strong immune system.
The Aztec warriors used chia seeds for all kinds of things. It would be used for many different ailments and in many different forms. They would use it as flour, oil, medicine, and food.
