Chia seeds have much more to offer than simply a product for a funny infomercial... they have excellent health benefits too!
Chia seeds are native to South America and have been a staple in the Mayan diets for centuries because of their high content of healthy oils and antioxidants.
These tiny seeds are a great source of polyunsaturated fats, especially omega 3's (about 60%) which makes them the richest plant-based source of fatty acids. Omega 3's offer a wide variety of health benefits from reducing inflammation in the body to even enhancing cognitive function.
Chia seeds are also high in fiber, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese.
