Health Benefits of Chia Seeds
27 Jan' 21

 ? The small, black seeds are among the richest plant sources of the omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Diets high in ALA have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease. Chia seeds are also high in insoluble fiber, which may help lower harmful LDL cholesterol levels.

? Because chia seeds don't have much flavor, you can add them to different foods such as cereals, yogurts, or soups for a stealthy nutrient boost. When added to liquid, the seeds develop a gelatin-like texture, so they're often used to make healthy puddings. Stir a quarter-cup of chia seeds into a cup of milk (almond, soy, and dairy all work). Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Add berries, nuts, cinnamon, and a touch of sweetener, if you like.
