7 Enticing Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

1. Highly nutritious

Chia seeds are the tiny black or white seeds of the Salvia hispanica L. plant. They are thought to be native to Central America.

Chia seeds contain about 10 grams of nutritional fiber per ounce (28 grams). That means they contain 35% fiber by weight.

5. Contain many important bone nutrients

Many observational studies indicate that obtaining enough of these nutrients is critical for maintaining good bone mineral density, which is a sign of bone strength.

6. May reduce blood sugar levels
