Chia seeds may not be something you would think to eat on a regular basis, but they are full of vitamins and nutrients and they should be added into your diet consistently. Chia seeds can provide you with fiber, protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. They are also packed with vitamins including calcium, manganese, zinc, copper and potassium. Chia seeds are also filled with antioxidants to help you fight free radicals and prevent diseases.
Chia seeds are also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which can help keep your skin looking supple and young, can help prevent heart disease and improve heart health, as well as fight off diseases like diabetes and obesity. Chia seeds can also help with digestion and detoxification, help you lose weight, build lean muscle, and improve bone density and health. Chia seeds are also known to help exercise performance and recovery.
Chia seeds are easy to incorporate into your diet. You can add them into a smoothie or protein shake, add them into yogurt or granola, sprinkle them on top of avocado or peanut butter toast, cook them down into a pudding, mix them into home-made snack bars, or add them into a salad for an added crunch.
