WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT CHIA SEEDS?
Chia seeds are particularly beneficial as they contain large amounts of fibre, calcium and iron. They’re great for digestion and can effectively boost energy levels and strengthen bones.
They’re also packed with micronutrients and antioxidants which help protect your immune system from any nasties and/or pesky colds (you’re welcome!).
As if they weren’t magical enough, chia seeds also contain omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are especially important as they can help reduce the risk of heart and other inflammatory diseases.
But that’s not it! Fatty acids also reap many skin and hair benefits. The nutritional composition of chia seeds help prevent sun damage and have the power to reverse UV damage by producing collagen to aid cell repair.
Chia seeds are also jam-packed with essential amino acids and they do some pretty amazing things to your scalp. Amino acids are crucial to all of your tissue, including your hair. They prevent hair loss and boost hair growth.
If you struggle with feeling satisfied and full in-between meals, look no further! Due to the high source of fibre within chia seeds, you can confidently go about your day without those pesky cravings and even manage your weight-loss journey with our chia packed protein!
