The Superfood in the New and Improved Cocoa Cassava Bars

Chia Seed
Chia seeds are an ancient food eaten by the Aztecs, Incas and Mayans that comes from a desert mint plant growing abundantly in southern Mexico.

In the Mayan language, chia means “strength.” These tiny, nutty-flavored seeds were a staple in the diet of Aztec warriors and considered to be a “running food” because messengers believed that they could energize and sustain them for an entire day. The Aztecs also used chia to treat joint pain and skin conditions.

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fats, antioxidants, protein and fiber. In fact, it’s considered as the richest natural plant source of omega-3. Like flaxseed, chia is rich in alpha linoleic acid (ALA), which is an omega-3 precursor and is converted by your body to the omega-3 fats EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).

Studies show that chia seeds contain more omega-3 than salmon, more antioxidants than blueberries, and, more calcium, fiber and protein than flaxseed. Chia is so densely packed with nutrition that eating two tablespoons will give you 205 mg of calcium, 7 g of dietary fiber and 5.2 g of omega-3.

Chia contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Fiber-rich foods take longer to eat, are processed more slowly by your body and tend to produce a feeling of fullness with fewer calories, which may help provide weight loss.

Unlike flaxseed, which needs to be grinded, chia is ready-to-eat, highly digestible and has a long shelf life – it can be stored for several years, retain its potency and not go rancid.

Chia seeds are also free from cholesterol, gluten and trans fats and have not been found to be allergenic.

Because of its nutritional value, stability and convenience, more and more people are mixing chia seeds to their drinks, sprinkling them to cereal, yogurt and salads, adding them to flour for baking, or simply eating them as a snack.

Dr. Joseph Mercola’s New and Improved Cocoa Cassava Bars are now sprinkled with organic raw chia seeds. It’s not difficult to find organic raw chia because the high oil content of the chia plant acts as a natural insect repellent, thus eliminating the need for pesticides.

This natural health bar keeps on getting better. With a superfood like organic raw chia seeds and a host of all-organic ingredients, you can’t go wrong with the cocoa cassava health bar. The wait will soon be over as the New and Improved Cocoa Cassava Bars are coming in March 2010.
