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.

    I've started putting these into my daily smoothie and can really see the benefits already. They provide energy and I think they are improving my skin too.

  • These Chia Seeds are simply amazing!

    star

    I recently bought Chia seeds for the first time I chose BioBalance because I've used their other products for years and love the quality, the packaging, the information and the price. I mixed Black Chia seeds and White Chia seeds together for maximum benefit and every morning I grind some up in a coffee grinder and soak them for an hour or so before mixing them with my oatmeal porridge. Well, the results were startling! I have no known bowel problems and normally pass what I consider to be healthy motions several times each day. But after taking the Chia seeds there was a dramatic improvement in the color, size, texture and frequency of my bowel motions. I also had a feeling that my bowels had been thoroughly and competely emptied which is not something I always feel. So -guess what - I'm going to include Chia seeds in my diet every single day and will not miss an opportunity to tell the whole world of their benefits!

    My husband and I have been using chia seeds for some years now either on muesli or in porridge. Because of the protein in them they help us not to feel too hungry during the morning. I would recommend them to anyone as they are easy to put in anything .
