Chia seeds – are they healthy?

Don’t be full by the small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients. 

Excellent source of omega- 3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide fiber, iron and calcium. 

Chia seeds are members of the mint family. ancient they were cultivated by the Aztecs, they grow most readily in Mexico and the U.S. Southwest. 


An ounce of chia seeds (about 2 tablespoons) contains 138 calories, 10 grams of fiber, 9 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein, as well as 17 percent of your daily calcium  needs, 12 percent of your iron and 23 percent of your magnesium  


Well if it comes to flavor, there isn’t much to say, you won’t really notice them in your food, maybe except for a little bit of crunch and bump that they add to the texture. 

When you don’t like fish, eating chia seed is perhaps the easiest way to get omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important to brain health. 

Put a little bit of water into your chia seeds, and you will see them turn into a kind of gel. This is the soluble fiber going into work. 

Soluble fiber bulks up stool, feeds friendly bacteria in the gut and helps slow digestion to make you feel satisfied.  A serving of chia seeds provides a third of your daily fiber.

Chia seed can also help with managing blood sugar.  

Stay healthy!
