MIGHTY VEGAN FUNCTIONAL FOOD: Chia is currently the rising star in the healthy eating community. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is a part of the family Lamiaceae, native to Mexico. Chia seeds though small are one of the most recognizable foods in terms of nutritional profile.

A protein diet brings numerous health benefits, including greater muscle mass and
stronger bones. Protein also reduces the level of the hunger hormone (ghrelin), increases metabolism, is very filling and promotes weight loss.

Healthy fats, including essential fatty acids, are an important source of energy and are required for a larger number of physiological functions in the human body. ALA, in particular, has been shown to reduce inflammation, reduce the risk of heart disease.
