When Americans hear the word “chia,” they usually think of “Chia Pets” and the old jingle they used in their TV commercials… Ch-ch-ch-ch-chia!
What most people don’t realize is that chia seeds are actually one of the healthiest foods on the planet and are just now being recognized as an amazing superfood!
Chia was one of the most important crops for the ancient Aztecs. They ate it by the handful. In fact, some people credit the Aztec’s abundant chia crops with the success of their empire.
To this day, chia is a staple for the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico, who are legendary for their ability to run 50 to 100 miles a day without rest.
And I recently learned that… chia has become the “stimulant” of choice among many Wall Street traders. As one writer pointed out, chia is “healthier than coffee and cheaper (and obviously more legal) than cocaine.”
So what makes chia so great? And why is it now catching the attention of urban survivalists? Keep reading!
6 Reasons You Need Chia Seeds In Your Survival Stash
- Chia seeds are loaded with omega-3 oils. In fact, it is the single best non-marine source of omega-3 oils on planet earth — even better than flax seed! (Salmon and omega-3 oil supplements will be nearly impossible to get when the SHTF… but chia seeds will help you stay healthy and mentally sharp no matter what happens.)
- Chia seeds are loaded with fiber and protein. Fiber helps you feel full and keeps your digestive system in tip-top shape. Protein helps to build muscle and provides a vital source of energy.
- Because it is practically flavorless, chia seeds can be easily added to almost any food (cereal, oatmeal, yogurt) for a nutritious low-calorie energy boost.
- Chia is compact. Just a handful or two each day provides you with vital omega-3 oils and a source of “slow-burn” energy that will keep you feeling energetic and alert for hours. (Chia seeds should be in every bug-out bag!)
- Chia seed doesn’t spoil easily. It keeps on the shelf for up to two years. And you don’t need to refrigerate it. That’s because it’s packed with healthy antioxidants that act like natural preservatives, preventing the chia from going rancid or spoiling.
- Chia seeds are versatile. They can be eaten raw, by the handful, if needed. They can be added to other foods. Or they can even be ground into flour.
Ideally, you’ll want to have a supply of chia seeds stored in your home. Plus, you’ll want to add chia seeds to your bug-out bag in case you are unable to get quick access to food.
How To Get Your Own Supply Of Chia Seeds
Powerful Living now offers a type of chia seeds called “Aztec Black Chia.” This chia is not commercially farmed. Rather, it is grown in rich volcanic soil on mountainsides that are fed by mineral-rich mountain aquifers.
Our chia fields are traditional small farm plots, not giant agribusiness endeavors, and they’re located high in the fertile mountains of the old Aztec empire in Mexico.
No pesticides or chemicals are used, and because our chia is grown only at elevations of 5600 feet and above, our chia seeds have an extremely high omega-3 fat content (unlike some of the commercially grown chia that is farmed at lower elevations).
