What Are Chia Seeds?
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. Everyone from children to senior citizens can benefit from the wonderful nutritional qualities of chia seeds.

Adding just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds to your daily diet will give you approximately 7 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 205 milligrams of calcium, and a whopping 5 grams of omega-3!

More Omega-3 than Atlantic Salmon
More Antioxidants than fresh blueberries
More Fiber than bran flakes
More Calcium than 2% milk
More Protein, Fiber & Calcium than flax seed

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.

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. Chia seeds last for years so stock up now!

Please note, anyone who suffers from any stomach/digestive disorders should be careful about eating whole chia seeds as they can lodge themselves in the nooks and cause discomfort. i adivse anyone who suffers from any of these conditions to take the seeds another way , powder or tea perhaps?

The nice thing about chia is the gel it produces - I use it in some smoothies to get a texture I like. I get the same gel whether I soak it whole or blend it up into powder before adding it. It usually gets run through my magic bullet and blended into powder before I make the smoothie.
