Chia seeds have been gaining in popularity as a really tasty and nutritious natural health food. On Jan. 7, 2014 a reader of my articles shared her excitement with me about a company which makes Chia seed bars, Health Warrior, in an e-mail about recent coverage of the health benefits of Chia seeds in an article I recently wrote for Examiner, "Chia seeds may help prevent heart disease, diabetes and cancer." This interest made me want to learn more about what Health Warrior is up to.
Health Warrior has been dedicated finding the highest quality Chia seeds in the world from growers and helping people improve their health in a delicious way with chia bars made from these seeds. The chia bars from Health Warrior are just 100 calories and have omega 3-fatty acids, fiber, protein, and antioxidants. They are low in sugar and free from gluten, soy and dairy products.
Chia is considered the ultimate Superfood. Chia has earned the name ‘runner’s food’ because legend says chia seeds powered the Tarahumara Indians on their legendary long-distance runs. Chia seeds are also said to have fueled Aztec warriors when they went into battle. Aztec messengers were also given energy from chia seeds for their long cross-empire journeys.
Chia seeds have become so popular ABC News ran a story saying 2013 was the year of the chia seeds among the health conscious. Drew Rosen, nutrition and cooking teacher at New York City's Whole Foods Market Tribeca, has said, "Chia seeds have been in Whole Foods for a long time, but they're just now starting to grow in popularity. It's an ancient crop, but because the seeds are so flexible and high in omega threes, they are just blossoming all over the markets in all different types of products." These chia seeds appear to be something really healthy and tasty. Perhaps 2014 should be another year of the chia seeds for everyone whose really into good health naturally.
