Healthworks brings to the market an amazing chia seed brand. For centuries many have used chia seeds for a host of different reasons. Native Americans would take a pouch of seeds and a gourd of water on their trips. They found that when you hydrate the seeds in water, the shell opens up and absorbs up to nine times its volume. This then forms a gel, which is called Chia Seed Gel. The gel is 90% soluble fiber, which is beneficial for your digestive track. People today use the seeds when they are involved in sports or physical activities for hydration and endurance. Chia seeds can also be used as a thickener for sauces or added to any of your baking needs as a great egg replacement. You can't go wrong with Chia Seeds!
