Chia or salvia hispanica seeds are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The nutrient-rich seeds are also good source of fibre, proteins and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Chia is made of about 32% of fibre and 20% of protein. It also contains a decent amount of calcium, manganese, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B1, B3 and B12. This makes them one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. That's the reason why chia seeds are referred to as a "super-food" or functional food.
