Chia seeds are rich in vitamins and minerals, and they also boast a rich history. The ancient Aztec and Maya civilizations prized the chia seed as a vital source of nutrition. The Aztecs first used chia more than 5,000 years ago. By 2000 B.C., chia had become an integral part of many Central American diets, including the Teotihuacan, Toltec and Aztec societies.

But it wasn’t until she began using chia seeds that Janie regained her full strength and vitality. And while nothing can be called a “miracle food,” chia seeds are a sensible addition to any healthy diet!
