Chia seeds are one of the best, most nutritious superfoods around. They are packed with all sorts of essential nutrients and are very low in calories and carbs. Chia is especially rich in fiber, which is a very important nutrient. Fiber is essential for maintaining a good digestive tract because it promotes the healthy bacteria in the intestines that are necessary for a healthy gut. Fiber is the main nutrient that chia provides, with 11 grams of fiber per 1 ounce of chia. This makes chia a reliable source of fiber for those looking to add more fiber to their diet.

With these nutrients come numerous benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, reduced chance of diabetes, and many more. Chia seeds promote healthy weight loss and a faster metabolism. They expand to almost 10 times their size when digested, making you feel fuller and more satisfied.

Chia seeds are vitamin and antioxidant-rich, which helps lower the risk of harmful free radical cells. Free radical cells can cause rapid aging and general illness, and can also be linked to the spread of cancerous cells. Chia contains minerals such as manganese, zinc, magnesium, and calcium, which are important for healthy bones, blood pressure, immune system, and much more.
