100% Australian Grown & Organic Chia Seeds
Australian Grown Bulk Chia Seeds
Despite their small size, Chia Seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
What are the main health benefits of chia seeds?
Chia Seeds Deliver a Massive Amount of Nutrients With Very Few Calories
Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They’re loaded with fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
Chia Seeds Are Loaded With Antioxidants
Chia seeds are high in antioxidants that help protect the delicate fats in the seeds. They also have various benefits for health.
Almost All the Carbs in Them Are Fibre
Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fibre. This gives them the ability to absorb 10–12 times their weight in water. Fibre also has various beneficial effects on health.
Chia Seeds Are High in Quality Protein
Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods. Protein is the most weight loss friendly macronutrient and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings.
The High Fibre and Protein Content in Chia Seeds May Help You Lose Weight
Chia seeds are high in protein and fibre, both of which have been shown to aid weight loss. However, studies on chia seeds have provided mixed results.
Chia Seeds Are High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Chia seeds are very high in the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. However, humans are not good at converting this into DHA, the most important omega-3 fatty acid.
Chia Seeds May Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
Studies on the effects of chia seeds on heart disease risk factors are inconclusive. Some studies suggest benefits, others do not.
They’re High in Many Important Bone Nutrients
Chia seeds are high in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and protein. All of these nutrients are essential for bone health.
Chia Seeds May Reduce Blood Sugar Levels
Studies show that chia seeds may lower the rise in blood sugar after a high-carb meal, possibly benefiting people with type 2 diabetes.
They May Reduce Chronic Inflammation
Limited evidence suggests that eating chia seeds may reduce an inflammatory marker known as hs-CRP. However, the health benefits are uncertain and more studies are needed.
Chia Seeds Are Easy to Incorporate Into Your Diet
Chia seeds are easy to prepare and are often added to porridge or smoothies.
