Chia, is familiar to most of us as a seed used for the Chia Pet. But the Chia Seed has many benefits, such as absorbing about 12 times its weight in water and creating a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. Because of this, Chia enhances endurance, prolongs hydration and balances electrolytes. Chia seeds are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and linoleic fatty acid, all very essential in the body.
