10 Little Known (But Amazeballs) Benefits Of Eating Chia Seeds
More Calcium Than A Cup Of Milk
An 8 ounce serving of whole milk delivers 276mg of calcium. Just 1.5 ounces of chia delivers the same amount.
Increases Good Cholesterol (HDL) And Lowers Bad (LDL)
The next two benefits will help explain why they are so great for your cholesterol levels, unlike trendy high fat diets like paleo.
More Omega-3 Than Salmon
A one ounce serving has 4915mg of omega-3's. You'd need about 9 ounces of wild caught Atlantic salmon to get the same amount.
More Fiber Than Broccoli
A small bunch of broccoli (around 500 grams) has about 13 grams of fiber. A one ounce serving of seeds has 10 grams.
Helps Regulate Blood Sugar
The same nutrients (fiber and fat) that help keep cholesterol down also help blood sugar levels from spiking.
Helps Keep Your Body From Storing Fat
Blood sugar spikes cause insulin levels to rise and insulin is the hormone that tells your body to store fat.
Helps Your Body Build And Maintain Muscle
They won't turn you into Arnold, but they do have more protein than just about any other plant source.
Absolutely Zero Net Carbohydrates
A whole ounce has 12 grams of carbohydrates but 11 of them are fiber. Your body burns more calories digesting that fiber than that last carbohydrate.
Should Lower The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes
Recent studies have shown that a diet that includes them can help get rid of diabetes. src
And Cardiovascular Disease As Well
Keeping your cardiovascular system healthy is hard work but chia seeds can help.
Are you ready to include them as a regular part of your diet? They're probably one of the few trendy super foods that are actually worth trying.
Let us know in the comments how you're incorporating them into your routine.
I know people add them into baked goods or sprinkle them on yogurt. I've seen them floating in some drink at the grocery store too. Seems weird to me. Am I wrong?
