Chia (Salvia hispanica) is a member of the mint family. It originated in Mexico۪s central valley, and was an important part of the Aztec and Mayan diets. Kosher chia seeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, minerals and vitamin B. Chia is an ancient superfood that۪s great for runners because it helps prolong hydration and retain electrolytes.

Chia contains two times the amount of potassium as bananas, three times antioxidant strength of blueberries and three times more iron than spinach. When added to foods chia bulks them up while displacing calories and fat. Thus someone can eat a typical serving, yet only consume about half the calories they might have eaten because the food has been bulked up with chia.

Chia slows the impact of sugars on the system if eaten together by creating a physical barrier between carbs and the digestive enzymes that break them down, which slows the conversion of carbs into sugar.
