Why we love the superfood: Chia Seeds

Why do we love Chia Seeds? Well apart from the fact that they are a nutritionally dense superfood, are packed full of fiber and vitamins, and contain more antioxidants than blueberries, they are actually also one of the best brain foods you could ever eat. Chia Seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids which means that they can prevent cognitive decline says Dr OZ. You see Omega-3 fatty acids actually help to nourish the brain thus improving communication between the brain cells. So a clear brain means you will be able to think better, concentrate better, communicate better and most importantly remember a whole lot easier. Just add two tablespoons to your morning smoothies or sprinkle over your fruit and yoghurt for a nutritious start to the morning.
