Chia seeds provide complete protein, as well as antioxidants, vitamins, a variety of minerals such as calcium, and are rich, plant based source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. 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 digestive system. Because they are so nutrient dense and filling, chia seeds can help reduce cravings. I eat them daily 😉
