Chia seeds provide complete protein, as well as antioxidants, vitamins, a variety of minerals such as calcium, and are a rich, plant-based source of omega-3 vs omega 6 fatty acids (ALA). Chia seeds have a high level of soluble and insoluble fiber, and swell up to 15 times their size when mixed with liquids to create a filling gel that provides long-burning fuel as it cleanses your digestive system. Because they are so nutrient-dense and filling, chia seeds can help reduce cravings and keep you on track with your diet. I eat them daily.

The brand of chia seeds I consume and recommend is The Chia Co. It is grown in Western Australia where the land is high unpopulated and the soil is very pure and uncontaminated, which is why they produce a superior chia seed with enhanced levels of Beauty Minerals and nutrients.
