Inevitably, when we are living life at the extreme, our internals and body needed to be serviced and overhauled especially with my growing up history. My teenage livelihood was filled with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, bone marrow transplant and various treatments for CML. Lifestyle in the 20s comprised of endless sleepless night being either overdosed with meetings and deadlines and/or overworked with friends travelling, clubbing and disco'ing. In the 30s, life was fanatically full of strenuous activities from mountain climbing, dualthon, triathlon and marathons and for the past 3 years..... Bootcamp!!
We were only recently introduced to Chia Seed by Nawal Aini Zulkifli's mom whom started on the chia seed supplements a few months earlier. I was convinced of Chia Seed after googling and reading abit about it to learn of its benefits. Convinced, I went to the Jaya Grocer, Jaya Jusco, Cold Storage and Tesco to search for it and failed. My MIL first bought her supplies that she discovered online from a supplier in TTDI and was conned when she was charged RM300 per kg. The chia seed should only cost approximately RM70 per kg. After hunting for the chia seed at various mart and shops I finally found the shop inside tesco that sells it.
I bought and had a serving of two tablespoons before we decided to run the Borneo International full marathon. I read the background and history of Chia Seed dated back when the Aztec warrior only had the Chia Seed without any other food or supplements to last them during the war and during those days when a messenger' had to go on foot to deliver important messages from the palace to another county and was only fueled by the Chia seed. I put the Chia Seed to test and ran the 42.2km marathon......
If you have ever driven the Proton Exora CFE or the Proton Preve CFE.. or if you have not tested the CFE engine, then perhaps the feel of driving other turbo engine, then that was how the Chia Seed affect had on me while running. The rush of energy flow through the vein and the sudden acceleration of pace was unexpected but that was how I feel. My body also recovers better when I am on one serving of Chia Seed daily. One serving comprised of 2 tablespoon full.
Dont take my word for it.. just google Chia Seed, read about it and try it out.. Somehow, it is not so easy to get the supply.. I bought my first supply at a small shop located at the Tesco, Mutiara Damansara. My MIL said, you can also buy it at Eco Green in Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
If you have any other tips for better health and supplements.. do share it with us.
