Yes it is easy eating green with this powerful recipe that gives you that boost of nutrition. I love it in the morning to get my day started right. Pictured right is this yummy smoothie in my Urban Herbal Oasis --- my wellness kitchen!
Chia Seeds (Salvia hispanica) date back to the time of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations who ate it for energy and endurance. They are power packed with fiber and Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because we need them for our bodies to work normally. Because essential fatty acids are not made in the body we need to get them from our diet. (I love the Organic Chia Seeds (pictured above right) that I purchased from the Original Herbal Remedies Herbal Shop located in Jamaica, NY. You can get 9 oz for $11.95!)
Omega-3s have a been reported to have a number of health benefits: reducing inflammation throughout the body -- in the blood vessels, the joints, and elsewhere, helping to lower triglycerides and blood pressure supporting cardiovascular health and there are studies showing that omega-3 fatty acids may help with other conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, depression and many more ailments. These little seeds are powerful!
