Basil Seeds, also known as Sabja Seeds, are the seeds from the Basil plant. Like Chia, these black, tear-shaped seeds become gelatinous when soaked in water. They have high fiber content which can assist you in weight loss. Consumption of basil seeds is said to have an uplifting effect on your mood and can help with mental fatigue, depression, and migraine headaches. They are also reported to have antioxidant, anti-cancer, antiviral, antibacterial, antispasmodic, and antifungal properties.
How to Use
You can use Basil Seeds just the way you use Chia Seeds! Add them to drinks, blend them into smoothies, sprinkle on top of salads, mix into vegan cheeses or cream sauces, use them in desserts where you would use tapioca or thickeners or simply combine with fruits or yogurts!
