Some Benefits of Chia Seeds
Chia Seeds are rich in Omega-3, as in The Richest plant-source of this healthy oil. By weight, chia contains more Omega-3 than some fish, making it healthy for your heart and cholesterol levels.
Chia Seeds also balance your blood sugar. This is incredibly important if you want to maintain good energy levels during the day. Here’s why: if you eat a meal with high-starches or sweets, then your body will respond by spiking its
sugar levels in your blood which will lead to feeling sluggish. You know, that, oh I could use a nap moment after lunch? Well, if you’re eating foods that promote that feeling, you’re also putting yourself at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes, and I know you don’t want that.
So, Chia Seeds are able to balance your blood sugar due to its combination of insoluble and soluble fibres which slow down the body’s conversion of starches into sugars. The gelling action of the Chia Seeds also creates a feeling of fullness in the belly, which can also help with weight loss. And, while all this goodness is going on, Chia Seeds also provide steady energy rather than highs and lows.
