Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seed.
Chia seeds do not need to be ground to be absorbed by the body and they can be stored for long periods of time without going rancid.
They help with hydration due to their ability to absorb up to 9-10 times their weight in water.
Chia seeds also contain fibre, protein, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc among many other nutrients
Chia seeds have become very popular due to how versatile they are but it is their ability to prolong hydration that has brought them to the attention of athletes.
The seeds can absorb many times their own weight in fluid making you resilient to dehydration.
How about combining Chia seeds and coconut water to create your own homemade energy gel? Simply leave your chia seeds to soak in the coconut water (2 parts coconut water and 1 part chai seed) for 11 hours in the refrigerator. When you come back you’ll have a great gel for rehydrating! This is a wonderful way of avoiding all the artificial colourants and flavourings that are used in the energy drinks you’d find in your local store.
