Chia seeds are derived from the plant called Salvia hispanica. Salvia hispanica is a flowering plant in the mint family and is native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Chia was considered a staple food of the Aztec cultures, who would say that one small serving was all a man needed to run for a day. Australia is now one of the largest producers of chia in the world.
Chia seeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids, found normally from fish sources. It is both qualitatively and quantitatively high in complete protein, both soluble and insoluble fibre, as well as anti-oxidants, magnesium, calcium, iron and vitamin C.
A study conducted on Salba®, a specific brand of Chia, found that 3.5 oz of Salba® contained as much omega 3 as 28 oz of salmon, as much calcium as 3 cups of milk, and as much iron as 5 cups of raw spinach. Chia is also gluten free, a bonus for those with gluten sensitivities who have a hard time increasing fibre consumption. All that nutrition and it's also low in calories.
Studies have shown its use in the treatment of Type II Diabetes. As a high source of fibre, it regulates blood sugar and insulin release by slowing digestion and therefore preventing the sugar "spikes" that are common after meals. Similarly, chia is said to be complimentary to exercise programs aimed at weight loss, as it keeps individuals feeling satisfied longer and therefore decreases total caloric consumption. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation (It decrease C- reactive protein, a marker of inflammation in our blood.), decrease blood pressure and has blood thinning effects, making it useful in the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis, stroke and myocardial infarction (heart attack).
Chia can be consumed whole in seed form, ground and added to baking, or sprouted and used in salads and sandwiches. In Mexico, the seeds are soaked until they become gelatinous, and made into a drink called a chia fresco. Be cautious when buying chia that you are buying it from an agriculturally sound company, as to avoid high pesticide consumption.
Hemp seeds come from the plant Cannabis sativa and are used as a rich dietary nutrient source. They can be eaten alone or on salads or other foods to help improve your protein and essential fatty acid intake.
Do you mean “weed” seeds?
The plant Cannabis sativa has a number of different species.
In past, the most well known species were those that were high in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), whose buds were smoked or eaten as a psychoactive drug.
The nutritional content of hemp seeds is quite rich. Around 44% of the weight of hempseed is healthy edible oils, the vast majority of which are essential fatty acids (EFAs). One tablespoon of hemp oil per day can provide the full daily requirement of EFAs for an average adult. They are a relatively rich source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids by weight. The seeds can also be an excellent source of protein and contain all 9 essential amino acids, making hemp seeds a complete source of protein as well.
