Chia seeds they are really good for us?

While many people may desire a healthier lifestyle, few are able to make drastic lifestyle changes overnight. 

While a medical emergency may necessitate sudden changes, most find it easier to focus on a few small changes at a time.  Once those changes become a habit, then they can focus on forming additional healthy habits.  Since everyone wants to become healthy without much effort, National Health 101 Examiner will be sharing a few quick and easy health tips each week that provide the biggest bang for the buck in terms of health.  The tips shared during the month of August will relate to eating breakfast.

Most people would agree that it is best to start the day with a nutritious breakfast. For many Americans, a healthy breakfast is comprised of high-fiber whole grains, proteins that are low in saturated fat, and fresh produce (preferably organic, local, or pesticide free). To optimize the nutritional value of convenience breakfasts, sprinkle one to two tablespoons of chia seeds into cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, or smoothies.  Chia seeds have a very mild nutty taste that is not noticeable when mixed with other foods, yet they are one of the world's top super foods providing a nutritional boost that the body cannot help but notice.

Health Benefits

Chia seeds are useful to athletes because they provide long lasting energy while hydrating the body.  Soluble fiber coats each seed.  When the seeds are mixed with water, they form a gel.  This gel acts as a physical barrier between the digestive enzymes and the carbohydrates which slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.  As a result, energy is maintained while blood sugar and insulin are stabilized.  (Nutsonline.com)

Chia seeds support the gastrointestinal system. Since these seeds expand in water, they help cleanse and soothe the colon, removing toxins while strengthening GI muscles.  They are high in fiber which helps prevent constipation. Since chia seeds absorb almost 10 times their weight in water, they provide bulk which promotes a feeling of fullness and reduces the tendency to overeat.

Chia seeds contain all nine essential amino acids the body must obtain through food.  Thus, they are a source of complete protein and an ideal choice for vegetarians and vegans. (eatingbirdfood.com)

One of the greatest health benefits of chia seeds is that they are very high in omega 3 fatty acids.  They are the highest vegetable source of omega 3’s which help reduce inflammation and the risk of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. These essential fats help the body absorb essential nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, and K which support the cardiovascular and reproductive systems. (eatingbirdfood.com)

Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants which help fight cancer causing free radicals.  Chia seeds are also high in calcium and the trace minerals, boron and magnesium, which help the body absorb and utilize calcium.  Chia seeds are rich in potassium, too.
