Chia Seeds Info

If you’re looking for a new way to get a boost of nutrients into your daily diet, you might want to take your inspiration from the eating habits of the ancient Aztecs and Mayans who used to eat chia seeds to enhance their energy and endurance.

Chia Seeds Benefits

Providing a concentrated source of protein, essential fatty acids and fibre, chia seeds are considered one of the superfoods. As a superfood chia seed enhances energy and endurance and supply a full range of B vitamins including B17 (laetrile), good levels of calcium, trace minerals and antioxidants.

As a source of complete protein chia seeds contain all the essential amino acids we need. The high Omega 3 content promotes heart health and supports joint function and mobility. The fibre content promotes digestive health, bowel regularity, and balanced weight management.

 

How to Eat Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are primarily an easily digestible and highly nutritious whole food. They can be eaten raw or sprouted, used in smoothies, mixed into yogurt or porridge, for baking or chia puddings. It's recommended to soak them in water or milk overnight.

Chia Seeds Side Effects

Side effects are rare, but there are cases of allergy to chia seeds and also of bloating and gas from eating too many chia seeds. Chia seeds lower blood pressure so may be contraindicated if you are already hypotensive. Contraindicated if taking blood thinning medication.

  • Satisfying

    star

    Since adding Chia seeds to my morning smoothie a few months ago, I've noticed I'm not needing any am tea!......a friend commented " that's because Chia swells and give you sustaining energy" For whatever reason I'm satisfied and as long as lunch is around noon I'm doing okay! As a 71yr old who's physically active, I feel BioBalance is offering what its products promote.
