Chia (Salvia Hispanica)
Chia seed is traditionally consumed in Mexico, and the southwestern United States, but is not
widely known in Europe. Historically, Chia seeds served as a staple food of the Nahua (Aztec)
cultures of Central Mexico. Jesuit chroniclers referred to Chia as the third most important crop
to the Aztecs behind only maize and beans, and ahead of amaranth. Tribute and taxes to the
Aztec priesthood and nobility were often paid in Chia seed.

Chia seeds typically contain 20% protein, 34% oil, 25% dietary fiber (mostly soluble with high
molecular weight), and significant levels of antioxidants (chlorogenic and caffeic acids, myricetin,
quercetin, and kaempferol flavonols). The oil from Chia seeds contains a very high concentration
of omega-3 fatty acid — approximately 64%. Chia seeds contain no gluten and trace levels of
sodium.

Moringa (Moringa Oleifera)
The leaves are highly nutritious, being a significant source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C, protein,
iron, and potassium.  The leaves are cooked and used like spinach. In addition to being used
fresh as a substitute for spinach, its leaves are commonly dried and crushed into a powder, and
used in soups and sauces. Murungakai, as it is locally known in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, is used
in Siddha medicine. The tree is a good source for calcium and phosphorus. In Siddha medicines,
these drumstick seeds are used as a sexual virility drug for treating erectile dysfunction in men
and also in women for prolonging sexual activity.

Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing
mothers. Leaves can be eaten fresh, cooked, or stored as dried powder for many months
without refrigeration, and reportedly without loss of nutritional value.  It is commonly said that
Moringa leaves contain more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than
spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more potassium than bananas,” and that the protein
quality of Moringa leaves rivals that of milk and eggs.
