Fiber

There are carbohydrates in chia seeds. Most people turn their nose up at carbs (you shouldn’t, they really are beneficial to your health). However, you will be pleased to know that almost all the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. Your body is not going to absorb this. It is just pushed right out of the body. Fiber is a good carbohydrate as it does not raise your blood sugar.

Protein

Proteins are regarded as the building blocks of the human body. You need protein in your diet. Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein. In fact, they have more protein than most other plant-based products out there. A high protein diet will actually help you to lose weight quickly. This is because it has the ability to reduce your appetite. If you are a vegetarian or a vegan, then chia seeds are going to be especially good for you due to the high protein content in them.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Most people out there do not get enough Omega-3 in their diet. You will be pleased to know that chia seeds are one of the best natural sources of Omega-3. A boost in Omega-3 in your system will reduce stress levels, reduce your blood pressure, and even lower the risk of heart disease.
