Chia seeds are one of the most powerful, functional, and nutritious superfoods in the world! The chia seed is an excellent source of fiber, packed with antioxidants, full of protein, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and the richest known plant source of omega-3.

 

Top 5 Reasons to Eat Chia Seeds

 1.Chia Seeds Are Nutritious

On top of the fact that chia seeds have more omega-3 than any other natural source, they are loaded with antioxidants, calcium, protein, fiber, and many other vitamins & minerals.

 2.Chia Seeds Are Energizing

Not only do chia seeds give you a boost of energy that lasts, they also provide stamina and endurance. A single tablespoon could sustain Aztec warriors for an entire day.

 3.Chia Seeds Reduce Cravings

Because chia seeds absorb so much water and have high soluble fiber levels, they help release natural, unrefined carbohydrate energy slowly into the bloodstream.

 4.Chia Seeds Are Easily Digestible

Unlike flax seed, chia seeds do not have to be ground up before you ingest them. The human body can easily digest chia seeds, and with about 7 grams of fiber per serving, they actually help digestion.

 5.Chia Seeds Are Convenient & Versatile

You can eat chia seeds straight from the bag, mix them with your favorite drink, add them to your cereal or salad, and just about anything else.
