Gut Health Benefits

Gut health

Have you ever noticed the gooey consistency of chia, perhaps in chia pudding? That sticky component of this dish is a soluble dietary fiber, known as mucilage, which has many health benefits. Mucilage is a prebiotic, basic food for the "good" bacteria in our GI tract. More 'good' bacteria equal better gut health, and the more scientists research gut health, the more benefits they find. A healthy gut can:

  • Keep the bad bacteria in our intestines in check (helping to prevent certain intestinal issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • Help ward off infections, supporting our immune system
  • Communicate with the brain through nerves and hormones, which helps maintain general health and well-being.

Keep your 'regular'.
Just 2 tablespoons of SOW Chia Seed provide 11g of fiber, almost half of our daily needs.
