Remember those Chia animals they sold? Well Chia Seeds are good for you too! Chia Seeds are packed full of Omega 3 fatty acids… in fact more Omega oils than wild salmon (good for your heart), and more protein than kidney beans, plus more magnesium than broccoli, more iron than spinach, more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk, more selenium than flax seeds, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more great fiber than wheat bran. Chia seeds have a nutty flavor and in Mexico they make a drink of ground Chia Seeds that’s great! And you can add them to yogurt, muffins, salads, and your breakfast oatmeal. A study was done at the University of Toronto showing that people who started eating Chia Seeds dropped their blood pressure by 10 points. And Chia Seeds will boost your energy level and in Mexico the Aztec warriors used them for endurance. Chia Seeds have a low glycemic index—that means they release sugars slowly into your system for sustained energy, keep you from getting hungry, so you lose weight — and they are great for diabetics.

And they are easy to digest… what more could you want?
