Dear Subscriber,

How are you feeling today?

Full of energy? Sluggish?
Happy? Sad?

I ask, because so many people
these days don’t realise that the
body-mind connection is real.
And if you’re not giving your body
the proper fuel it needs to run optimally,
chances are you’ll feel less than 100 percent.

That’s why today I’d like to tell you
about an incredible food you can start
adding to your diet immediately. It’s a
nutritional superstar that could help make
your body (and you!) feel a whole lot better…


Yours For Health,

Could This Be Nature’s Most POWERFUL
Superfood Ever?

It’s been eaten for centuries in Latin

And while for years it became somewhat
of a “forgotten food,” it’s making a strong
comeback. In fact, some believe it may
very well be one of the most nutritious
superfoods on earth (and with good reason!).

I’m talking about chia.

You may have heard of chia before… just
not as a superfood.

During the 80s and 90s chia seeds became
popular when a company marketed them as
Chia Pets – terracotta animal figurines that
have grooves where you can apply the wet
chia seeds.

In a matter of weeks, the seeds sprout…
making the figurine look like it has fur or

Chia Pets can still be found today. But that’s
not why chia seeds are making headlines.
It turns out modern science is discovering
just how nutritious and healthy they are.

What makes them a superfood? The fact
that each chia seed packs the maximum
amount of nutrients with a minimum amount
of calories.

Quick example…

Most people don’t get anywhere near
the recommended amount of fibre in their

The Australian Dietetic Association recommends
anywhere from 20 – 35 grams of fibre per day.
Chia contains almost 11 grams of fibre in 2 tablespoons!
(By the way, 2 tablespoons of chia has
just 60 calories).

And we’re just getting started…

When compared gram for gram, chia
contains MORE heart-healthy omega-3
fats than salmon…

… Up to 15 times more magnesium (a
mineral critical for over 300 processes in
your body) than broccoli…

… 3 times more calcium than skim milk…

… and as much as 30 percent more
antioxidant power than blueberries!

Pretty amazing right?

It’s no surprise that in his national bestselling
book Born to Run, author Christopher
McDougall claims that : “In terms of nutritional
content, a tablespoon of chia is like a smoothie
made from salmon, spinach and human growth

And in a tough, systematic review conducted
by the Natural Standard Research Collaboration,
the researchers stated:

“The available human and non-human studies
show possible effectiveness for allergies, angina,
athletic performance enhancement, cancer,
coronary heart disease (CHD), heart attack,
hormonal/endocrine disorders, hyperlipidemia,
hypertension, stroke, and vasodilatation. Some
evidence also suggests possible anticoagulant,
antioxidant, and antiviral effects of Salvia hispanica
[Chia seed].” [1]

What other food on earth could have so many
potential health benefits!?

The best part in all this is that despite being an
amazing nutritional powerhouse, chia has a very
mild flavour… which means it can go well with almost

You can usually find chia seed at your local health
food store. Some offer the seeds ground up
into a fine powder… and others will sell you the seed.

Either way you get them, it’s easy to incorporate
into your diet (as a powder you can easily add
it to baked goods and delicious smoothies…
and as seeds you can add them to salads and sauces).

So why not give chia a little “love” this week
and try incorporating it into your diet? Your
body will thank you!

And remember – while adding “super” foods
like chia to your diet is a great way to keep
your body properly fuelled and healthy, don’t
forget you still need to exercise and move
a little everyday.
