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. In 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, you will provide your body with 11 grams of fiber. If you didn’t know this, fiber helps keep you full. So by increasing your fiber intake, you will feel fuller for longer between meals. So, no more growling stomachs in that morning meeting. That is why this cookie dough overnight oat recipe is perfect for a filling breakfast.

KEY NUTRIENTS OF CHIA SEEDS

Calcium | Manganese | Magnesium | Phosphorus | Zinc | Vitamin B3 | Vitamin B1 | Vitamin B2 | Fiber | Antioxidants | Protein | Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Chia seeds also contain decent amounts of protein, and since this is a seed, this would be an excellent protein option for vegans or vegetarians. The ancient Mayan word for strength is “chia”. Chia seeds definitely live up to that quality. These little seeds pack a huge nutritional punch. They are such an excellent energy-boosting ingredient to add to any dish. Studies have also found that by consuming chia seeds, it can help lower cardiovascular risks by up to 17%. There are also benefits to reduced cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased satiety by adding chia seeds into the diet (1).
