    Consuming chia seeds may reduce blood sugar after eating a meal (postprandial glycemia), according to a study. Salvia Hispanic is an annual herbaceous plant of the Lamiaceae (mint) family. Its origin is believed to be in Central America, where the seed (historically called “chian” or “chia”) was a staple in the ancient Aztec diet. The seeds of a related plant, Salvia columbariae (also called “golden chia”), were used primarily by Native Americans in the southwestern United States.
