Chia Seeds:  You may know Chia as the sprouts that grow on the porous clay figurines called Chia Pets, however there is much more to it than that! Chia has both nutritional and medicinal benefits. The seeds are an excellent source of essential fatty acids and are a great addition to a healthy diet. Chia Seeds are an edible seed that comes from the desert plant "Salvia hispanica," a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico. The seeds are either white or black and both types are highly nutritious. Learn more about the Ancient Chia Seed - How it Can Benefit Your Health.
