Chia Seeds: A True Powerhouse!

Chia seeds are one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. ‘Nutrient-dense’ actually means that a food item provides you a whole lot of nutrition for a relatively small amount of calories. Adding these kind of foods in your daily diet keeps your caloric intake in check but at the same time makes sure that your body gets the adequate nutrition.

Some worth mentioning benefits of Chia seeds include:

1. Good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. These seeds must be a part of your daily diet, especially if you are a vegetarian or do not consume fish often.

2. Loaded with fiber! A tablespoon of chia seeds has around 6g of carbohydrates out of which 5g is fiber, i.e negligible amount of actual carbohydrates? And the fiber content equal to a whole large apple?

3. The protein content in Chia seeds might not be high, around 2g per tablesoon but it is a complete protein! One of the few plant sources which deliver all the 9 essential amino acids?

4. Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin B1,B2,B3 and zinc.

Considering the fact that chia seeds provide all the above benefits at just around 70 calories per tablespoon and can be easily added to your daily diet in the form of smoothies, oatmeal, breads, etc it truly is a SuperFood?

P.S. I am not promoting any particular brand over here, you can go with any brand which is affordable, organic and genuine, I purchased this from Amazon in this case. Moreover, there is no difference in nutritional values of black and white Chia seeds, so no need to spend extra bucks solely due to the colour difference?
