Chia Seed Health Benefits

To start with, one ounce of chia seeds packs a punch fiber in the fiber department. One ounce is equivalent to about 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. Therefore, in 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, you will provide your body with 11 grams of fiber. If you don’t know this, fiber helps keep you full.

For example, by increasing your fiber intake, you will feel fuller for longer between meals. So, no more growling stomachs in that morning meeting. Above all, this is why this cookie dough overnight oat recipe is perfect for a filling breakfast.

Chia Seeds Give You Energy & Strength!

Chia seeds contain decent amounts of protein. Since this is a seed, this would be a notable protein option for vegans or vegetarians. The ancient Mayan word for strength is “chia”. Moreover, chia seeds definitely live up to that quality. Plus, these tiny seeds pack a substantial nutritional punch. In addition, they are such a wonderful energy-boosting ingredient to add to any dish.

Studies have also found that consuming chia seeds can help lower cardiovascular risks by up to 17%. Similarly, there are also benefits to reduced cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased satiety by adding chia seeds into the diet (1).
