One of the benefits of eating chia seeds seems to be that it helps dieters lose weight. Supposedly this whole-grain food helps to control hunger by expanding the belly, helping the dieter feel full.
- Just 1-ounce serving (about 2 tablespoons) added in with your cereal, trail mix, yogurt – or just a handful straight to the mouth takes care of 25% of your fiber, almost 20% of your calcium, 25% of your iron, and 30% of your magnesium.
- Has 3 times more fiber than many other seeds and nuts.
- Also has 2 times more calcium.
- No additives, preservatives or other silly nonsense.

Do you remember the Chia Pet back in the 1980’s? Did you know that those odd-looking gift items sprouted the same chia seeds that we are now eating for health benefits? Who would have thought back then . . . ?
But the jury is still out on that one. There hasn’t been any conclusive research to back this up.

However, studies have shown that chia seeds have antioxidant activity that is higher than any whole food, including blueberries. How about that?!
Antioxidants are compounds that help combat cell and DNA damage that leads to a whole range of health issues due to free radicals (not completely formed cells).
They are called “antioxidants” for good reason – they help fight oxidation in your body. Oxidation is what happens to your car (metal) when it rusts, or your apple when it turns brown on your kitchen counter and that fish in your fridge turns rancid. It happens to all cells in nature, including the ones in your body. And as we get older, the more help we get from antioxidants, the better we can age, and the better we can maintain a healthy body. With the price of healthcare and drugs, that’s a welcome relief!
And get this – chia seeds also contain the highest level of Omega-3s of any known plant! But keep in mind that they contain alpha linoleic acid (ALA) form found in plant foods but not docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the form found in fatty fish. Your body can convert some ALA to DHA, but it is relatively inefficient at this process, so you should consume both ALA and DHA for better and quicker benefits.
So why not include USDA organic chia seeds in with your other whole foods for something different to add to your diet?
