History: The history of chia seeds can be traced back to the ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures. These civilizations valued chia as a source of sustainable energy, and it was often used by warriors before going into battle. In fact, “chia” is the Mayan word for “strength.” Chia seeds were also used for medicinal purposes, such as aiding digestion and relieving joint pain. They were so highly regarded that they were even used in religious ceremonies. After the Spanish conquest of Mexico in the 16th century, chia fell out of use and was replaced by other crops introduced by Europeans. However, interest in this superfood has been revived in recent years due to its numerous health benefits. Today, organic black chia seeds are popular around the world. While their cultural significance may have faded over time, their nutritional value remains just as important today as it did centuries ago. Testimonial: “I started adding organic black chia seeds to my morning smoothies and have noticed a significant improvement in my digestion.” – Jared
