First of all, let's go in order, let's understand how much we know about pregnancy.
Pregnancy it is a beautiful and somewhat difficult period for every woman who has lived or is living it at the moment.
I, for example, who am not a mother, experience with great concern the pregnancies of my I learned what is good and what is bad, what are the main problems of a common pregnancy, such as anemia.
90 percent of mothers in progress, in the nine months , begins to suffer from a nemia, lack of iron.

Chia seeds during pregnancy
When you are pregnant your body needs everything and chia seeds have everything inside them!
This is what I want to tell you first, then for me it is the fundamental thing.
If you need proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fibers and mineral salts, well, chia seeds are rich.
Now that you are expecting a child you must understand that the body undergoes a series of rather common derangements such as trying to keep the pressure in balance.
Chia seeds help to keep the pressure stable and then by absorbing the water they promote better intestinal functioning.
Chia seeds are also able toeliminate excess toxins and keep blood sugar low.
Many times you will also feel swollen, thank you you will be able to feel fuller with these magical seeds.
In fact, rich in fibre, they are covered in a gel, a gel that gives a completely natural sense of satiety.
They also have no of gluten and antioxidants, therefore they fight free radicals!
Chia seeds, their history and iron deficiency
As I said previously, the problem that many expectant mothers experience is that of iron deficiency.
Iron deficiency is natural in pregnancy, it is as if our body has to take measures, as if sometimes it cannot balance itself with two people in the same body (and how to blame him).
Chia seeds are very rich in iron, they have 10 milligrams of iron in 100 grams of seeds, triple the presence of iron found in spinach, the very famous Popeye (exactly).
Chia seeds are one of the oldest foods we know of. They derive from asalvia hispanica already well known in the times of the Mayas and the Aztecs. The saving and nutritional properties of these seeds were already well known in those times.
It is said, in fact, that the Aztec warriors took them with them on missions because few of these seeds gave enough energy to feel good for more than 24 hours.
They were so important at that time that they were used as currency, for exchanges, as a sacrifice to the gods, as homage to religious leaders.
Chia seeds lost their almost magical value due to the Spanish conquistadors who brought wheat and barley with them and forbade the cultivation of the seeds, perhaps for fear of its magical influence on the population.
Just imagine that only in 1991, thanks to some studies by some universities in South America, chia seeds were cultivated again.
