Chia seeds are loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids and help restore the balance of Omegas in the body, preventing cardiovascular diseases, reducing cholesterol, inflammation and blood clots. Chia seeds contain antioxidants to protect their fat content, which are absorbed by the body to trap free radicals and protect tissues. Chia seeds, when they come into contact with water, release a mucilage that, when consumed, sends signals of satiety and acts as a protective balm for the digestive system.
