Chia is naturally high in fiber as well as vitamin E, and a single serving contains 6 grams of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Chia is a good source of protein, calcium, niacin, iron, phosphorus, biotin, dietary fiber and thiamin. That is quite a potent punch for such a tiny seed and it certainly explains why chia is experiencing something of a renaissance today.
All natural, Gluten Free, sodium free and vegetarian – Chia Seeds contain all nine essential amino acids making them a complete protein. Amino acids benefit our muscles and tissue growth from hair to skin and nails. A diet including “complete proteins” is essential especially if you are a vegetarian or vegan. They contain more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. They also give you tons of energy and are great for weight loss. Because they can absorb over 5 times their weight and size in liquid, Chia Seeds help you feel fuller longer and are great for preventing dehydration during exercise or exposure to heat.
