The nutritional benefits of chia seeds are many:
They are actually nutrient-dense whole grains with omega-3 fatty acids which can help reduce inflammation and high cholesterol.
Chia seeds are also very rich in antioxidants, minerals and fibers.
Their high antioxidants are as powerful as the antioxidants in fresh blueberries.
They are gluten free, for individuals on a gluten free diet.
Use chia seeds as you would flax seeds. Try them in your cereals, baked goods such as muffins or brownies, on your salads and of course in your smoothies.
Check out “You: Staying Young” from Doctors Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz.
In their book, the doctors explain the mysteries of aging and how you can dramatically slow the process to live a longer, more vibrant life through healthy resources and nutrition.
The authors describe your body as a city and that you are the mayor, and as the mayor it is up to you to keep your city vital, energetic and learn how to balance your 'biological budget'. They give you numerous tools to help you clean up your city such as the many benefits of chia seeds.
