7 Good Reasons To Start Eating Chia Seeds

7 Good Reasons to Start Eating Chia Seeds
  1. Help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.
  2. Feel fuller faster: They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
  3. Hydration for athletes: They are also great for athletes because the "chia gel" can hydrate the body.
  4. Reduce your blood pressure: There's evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure.
  5. Omega-3: They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
  6. Benefits for diabetes: Because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.
  7. They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don't need to be ground up.

What the Experts Say About Chia Seeds

Dr Oz from the Oprah ShowDr. Oz from the Oprah show says,"They just may be one of the healthiest things around."

Dr Weil in Time MagazineNutrition expert Dr. Weil said, "A healthful and interesting addition to my diet. My prediction? You will begin to see chia being added to more and more commercial products, such as prepared baby foods, nutrition bars, and baked goods."

Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut chooses chia seeds as a top pick because of their overall nutrition package including: healthy fats, fiber, and minerals. In fact, just one tablespoon of chia seeds provides nearly 20 percent of your daily fiber goals. Plus, chia seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, which are a type of fat that the body needs to function that must come from food. Try stirring in a tablespoon of chia seeds into tea, juice or milk for a nutrient boost! Or thanks to their water absorbing properties, chia seeds are great for making pudding.

How to Eat Chia Seeds (Including Recipes)

Registered dietitian Megan Roosevelt talks about the health beneifts of Chia Seeds and a Chia Chocolate Pudding recipe.

Chia seeds make an incredibly healthy—and often unnoticeable—addition to many foods.

Here are some great ways to enjoy chia seeds:

  • They can be eaten raw. (They have a nice "nutty" flavor.)
  • They can be soaked in fruit juice (in Mexico, they call this "chia fresca").
  • They're perfect in porridges and puddings.
  • They make an ideal addition to baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.

How Many Chia Seeds Should You Eat? We recommend two daily doses of about 20 g each (1.5 ounces total).
