5 Chia Seeds Benefits

April 18, 2018

Chia seeds (salvia hispanica) are eagerly consumed by people who care about health and nutrition.

Originally grown in Mexico, the seeds were highly valued for their medical and nutritional value. Chia seeds were an important food for the Aztecs and Mayans back in the day.
Chia in the Mayan language means “strength”. Chia seeds were also known as “runners’ food” because runners and warriors use them as fuel while running long distances or fighting battle.

Despite their tiny size, Chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They contain fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. Moreover, Chia seeds are usually grown organically, are non-GMO and naturally free of gluten.

Top 5 Chia Seeds Benefits

1. Digestive Health

Chia seeds are the second, after wheat bran (42 g / 100 g), the most valuable source of fiber.
Fiber is essential for your body’s ability to balance insulin levels. According to the National Institutes of Health, seeds like flax and Chia can be a natural blood sugar balancer due to their high fiber content and healthy fats.

2. Beneficial effects on the skin and Anti-aging

This research proves that Chia seeds are one of nature’s riches high-antioxidant foods. Antioxidants speed up the skin’s repair systems and prevent further damage. Taking Chia seeds can prevent premature skin aging due to free radical damage.

3. Help Treat Diabetes

Because Chia seeds are high in fiber, it does seem plausible that they could help reduce blood sugar spikes after meals.

4. Boost Energy and Metabolism

By adding a serving of Chia seeds a day, you can help boost your metabolism and burn belly fat as well. Studies show that the addition of Chia seeds to your diet also reduces visceral adipose tissue, a “belly fat” tissue that effects the metabolism of the body and is a component of obesity.

5. Weight down without the risk of muscle loss

Thanks to high amount of fiber, which absorbs 10x more water than the weight itself, slimming becomes very easy. Adding Chia seeds to food not only thickens the food, but also causes a longer feeling of fullness. In addition, a large portion of protein in the product and healthy fatty acids support the process of slimming.
