Chia seeds are a superfood and pack a nutrient dense punch. The best way to consume them is by soaking them in water since chia seeds are hydrophilic. Here are some of chia seeds’ best features, and how they work to improve your health.
Power to the Protein
The chia seed is a great plant source of protein, containing all eight essential amino acids — making it much higher in protein than many other plants. In fact, just two tablespoons contain 10 times the Omega-3s of an equal serving of walnuts (the highest level of Omega-3s of any known plant), more iron than a cup of spinach, among many other nutrients. They are also a great source of beneficial fats and fiber, and have about as many antioxidants per serving as blueberries. Impressive.! Fiber
A naturally low-carb and high-fiber food, chia seeds provide the recommended daily amount of fiber with just one serving. This fiber works as a prebiotic in the digestive system, so while it isn’t digested and used directly, it feeds the beneficial bacteria in your body and may help improve your digestive health. Better yet, chia seeds don’t raise raise blood sugar or affect insulin levels like other forms of carbohydrates do.
If you have trouble drinking enough water throughout the day, chia seeds are a terrific aid. With the unique ability to absorb over 10x their weight in liquid, chia seeds are the ultimate hydration food. Thanks to their soluble fiber content and water-absorbent shell, you can count on chia seeds to be filling and satisfying — all while keeping you hydrated as ever.
