Origin: also known as "Salvia Hispanica", "is a herbaceous plant of the family lamiáceas (as well as linen and sage), a native of Guatemala and central and southern regions of Mexico (and Colombia).
"There is evidence that the Aztecs cultivated vegetable in the Codex Mendoza present in pre-Columbian times, dating from the sixteenth century document which also mentioned its agricultural significance at the time." (1)

NUTRIENTS: The chia seed is rich minerals and essential amino acids, rich in omega-3 therefore prevent up cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and help weight loss, considering its large amount of fiber problems, which makes body increase the feeling of satiety.

OMEGA 3: The seed oil contains fatty Omega 3 and also contains alpha-linolenic acid.

Calcium contains 5 times the concentration of calcium found in cow's milk.
Magnesium: 100 grams of chia seed may contain the same as 200 g mineral present in walnuts or 1.6 kg of broccoli.

Phosphorus and manganese: 100 grams of CHIA 108 contains the manganese and 95% phosphorus demanded by an adult at a 2,000 calorie diet / day.

Proteins: The seed contains 15% protein in their composition. 28 grams of seed provide 9% of the protein should consume an adult per day. The set of its amino acids are wonderful and of high biological value in cell metabolism.

Fiber per 100 grams of seed, 38 grams of fibers are formed. This means that it helps in weight loss process, because the fibers increase the feeling of satiety in the body.
Antioxidants: CHIA contains the seed of efficient antioxidant called "kaempferol." What is the function of antioxidant? Means protection to the cell which increases its life in the body and, consequently, plays the aging far away, prolonging the life of the cells. Oxidation is a kind of "rust" (if it were a piece of iron) that hardens the cell membrane, preventing nutrients enter into the it and so the toxins are not eliminated.
The omega 3 fatty acid, acts on the cell membrane, thus facilitating the entry of nutrients into the cells, removing toxins. Helps control, as a result, prevents blood pressure and cardiovascular problems.

WAY TO CONSUME: the seed of Chia can be added to yogurt, juices, smoothies, fruit salads, risottos, manioc flour, breads, pates, puddings etc.
Quantity: one teaspoon of coffee Chia a day is enough. Do not overdo it, especially those who have a tendency to low pressure, because due to high concentration of mineral MAGNESIUM, it helps to lower blood pressure. (For those who are hypertensive, as in my case, it is great as it helps in balancing blood) .

So start with a nutritional education, putting on their menu, whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, oats, chickpeas, lentils, peas, beans etc.), dairy products, nuts, nuts, seeds as flaxseed, chia, amaranth etc. Fruits and vegetables daily!
