Chia is a superfood!
- Packed with essential fatty acids (omega 3 & 6).
- It is easy digestible.
- Hydrating for the body because it retains large amount of water, (about 10 times their weight) and the water is absorbed by the seeds holding it in our system longer.
- Another great benefit is that chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars.
- Finally it is a very good source of protein, fiber, magnesium calcium…
