Give Chia Seeds a Try!

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are grains native to Central America. They contain the Omega-3 acid ALA, which can convert within the body to the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. Omega 3 even contains calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and B vitamins! 

Chia seeds contain fiber and help us reduce the total cholesterol within our bodies and increase HDL. They lead to a reduction of high blood pressure, lower blood glucose, and can help lead to a total reduction in peak glucose. 

It is important to remember that essential fatty acids cannot be made by the body and we can only get them from our diet. Fatty acids are huge energy sources and can help influence cell and tissue metabolism, function, and responsiveness to hormonal and other signals.

So, be sure to add foods like chia seeds, to your salads, yogurts, and even smoothies!
