Though the use of chia seeds dates back to the Mayans, they’ve only recently joined the rank and title of superfood in the latest health craze. The tiny seeds are related to the mint plant, and have a mild flavor that incorporates well into smoothies and baked goods. To lend credibility to their superfood status, the seeds contain more antioxidants than blueberries do and are a good source of raw energy. Take a look at these 15 blog articles to learn more about the health benefits of chia seeds, as well as get some tasty recipes so you can add them into your diet.

Antioxidants

Chia seeds contain four types of antioxidants, allowing them to eliminate the free radicals in your body when they’re consumed.  These antioxidants also allow you to store chia seeds for up to two years at room temperature without spoiling. The following five blog entries explain more about the benefits of antioxidants and chia seeds.

Energy

Nutritionists all around the world are adding the amazing chia seeds to the diets of star athletes to help them maintain endurance during a game or race. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to reap the benefits of chia seeds, though.  By eating as little as one tablespoon of chia seeds per day you can experience the health benefits and energy boost that they will give you.  For more information about how chia seeds help improve your energy, check out these five blog posts.

Ways to Use

While the benefits of chia seeds are plentiful, you may not know how to add them into your diet. Since chia seeds don’t have a strong flavor, you can eat them raw or toss them into a baked good without even knowing they are there. It is noteworthy that when soaked in liquid, chia seeds form a gel, so don’t be surprised if you find your liquids thickening up once you add chia seeds to them.
