For something so tiny, chia seeds certainly pack a powerful punch!
- Nutrient dense! In one serving (28g) there are only 137 calories, but significant amounts of calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B2 (thiamine) and vitamin B1.
- Anti-aging! High in antioxidants, these tiny seeds can help your body defend against aging and disease.
- Digestive support! They are a truly fiber rich food, supporting healthy functioning of the digestive system and helping keep you regular.
- Weight loss assistance! The fiber content as well as the amount they expand when absorbing water have been shown to decrease food intake overall by making people feel fuller for longer.
- Good plant based protein! They are about 14% protein by weight, so can help get your protein numbers up if following a vegetarian or vegan diet.
- Heart healthy! Certain animal studies have shown that regular chia consumption can lower markers of metabolic disease like triglycerides and high blood pressure.
- May lower blood glucose and reduce inflammation. The fiber content and way the seeds behave in the body appear to lower blood glucose by slowing the absorption of food, and thus preventing glucose spikes, this may be contributing to their inflammation lowering effects too.
