      How chia seeds can chalk up better health

      Chia seeds are a superfood and touted as one of the healthiest foods on our planet! These are tiny black seeds that come from the plant salvia hispanica. The health benefits of these were known as far back as the ancient Aztecs and Mayans. The word chia" is actually the ancient Mayan word for "strength."

      Rich in protein

      Chia seeds are full of high quality protein, just one serving of chia seeds are filled with 3 grams of protein.  What’s more important are that these chia seeds are a complete protein, what we mean by this is that they contain all 9 essential amino acids. Add them into your diet by stirring them into your smoothies or oatmeal. A high protein diet lowers appetite thereby promoting weight loss.

      High in Omega-3 fatty acids

      These are higher in Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon! This ranks as one of the few plant foods rich in Omega-3 which is good for your heart and overall health.

      Brings down blood sugar levels

       Research has shown that chia seeds can help you improve insulin sensitivity and achieve blood sugar control thereby stabilizing blood sugar levels.

      Reduces inflammation

      Inflammation is your body’s normal response to infection or injury. Red and swollen skin is one of the ways your body responds. This does help your body heal and attack bacteria, viruses and other infectious agents but chronic inflammation can be dangerous.

      Weight management

       Chia packs in a huge dose of fiber. This makes you feel full for longer and this brings down your appetite. As your stomach will take longer to digest high-fiber foods, you will feel fuller on fewer calories. When you maintain a healthy weight, this will bring own your risk heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, and more.
