Known as “Mayan Mega Fuel”, chia seeds are one of the most nutrient-dense foods in existence. A three tablespoon serving has more than twice the iron as a cup of spinach, as much potassium as a banana, twice the fiber of a cup of oatmeal, and the antioxidants of a serving of blueberries. 

Chia seeds are a gelatinous food. One of the many benefits of consuming gelatinous foods is that these gels move through the intestinal tract absorbing toxins along the way for elimination. This helps to detoxify the body. One of the toxins eliminated is excess cortisol, which is the stress hormone responsible for heart disease and is stored in belly fat.

The benefits of consuming chia seeds are so numerous, it would be easier to list what aspects of your health they will not improve. If there is one thing that you add to your diet, make it this!!
