Chia seeds are the true unsung heroes. They are known as nutritional powerhouses and are high in magnesium, omega - 3 fatty acids, zinc, iron, vitamin E and calcium. They were consumed and a popular food choice during the Mayan Civilisation for the benefits they had not only on health but also skin and hair.

Here are some reasons to include these seeds in your diet.
Soothes inflammation
Chia seeds are known for not only their soothing but also cooling properties, making them perfect for the summer. Inflammation on the skin is a common occurrence during the hotter months and chia seeds help in soothing inflamed skin while also keeping the skin cool.

Hydrates skin
These seeds are also known for their fibre content which not only absorbs but also retains a lot of water. This makes them an excellent hydrator and a perfect ingredient to ensure the skin doesn't dry out during these sweltering months.

Prevents damage caused due to free radicals
With high levels of antioxidants, these seeds also help fight off the damage caused by free radicals, that occur when the skin is exposed to UV rays for a prolonged time. Chia seeds also help keep in check wrinkles and fine lines as one ages as they also have a high content of Omega-3 fatty acids.
