Chia has 5 main sources of health for you!

Omega-3

Chia is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids. Green Med Info has made a list of the 61 benefits Omega-3 fatty acids offer your body! Just in case you want to read all 61 of them!! The short list would be to help lower cholesterol and inflammation in your body, improve brain and nervous system functionality, reduce blood pressure, and support the immune and reproductive systems.

Fiber

The fiber in chia is powerful. Chia seeds contain 2 types of fiber: dietary fiber and water-soluble fiber. Dietary fiber is what your body uses to keep your digestive system active. Water-soluble fiber makes chia “hydrophilic”, which means, it absorbs a lot of water. When chia is exposed to liquids, it releases its water-soluble fiber into a gel that expands 10 times the size of the original seed. As it absorbs liquids, it also absorbs nutrients, processed carbohydrates and other food goods in your stomach. This creates, a feeling of fullness, which make chia seeds an excellent complement for diets. But, even better, chia fiber gel makes a slow release process of all the water and nutrients in your digestive system. This helps your body keep hydrated for longer periods of time, and helps lower sugar and insulin spikes!!! With more hydration and a slower intake of sugars your body will respond better to everyday demands.

Protein

Chia is more than 22% protein!! That is, complete protein, protein your body can use and absorb immediately. The protein in chia seeds contains all of the necessary building blocks (essential amino acids) for the body to put it to work. The body uses proteins to repair tissues, make enzymes, hormones and it’s an important component for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. Chia is a great source of natural, raw, vegetable based protein.

Micro nutrients and Vitamins

Chia is loaded with micro-nutrients and vitamins. Some of the most important ones are Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Manganese, Vitamin B1, B2 and B3. All of which help your body keep very healthy. This is why eating chia will help your body feel energetic and well nourished. Chia packs in the punch!

Antioxidants

Chia is a great source of antioxidants, which will help your body’s immune system and promote healthy cells. A serving of chia seeds contain more than five times the antioxidants of a serving of acai berries.
