Chia helps regulate blood sugar. If you want to reach your ideal weight, incorporate it as a supplement to a low saturated fat diet and you will have your energy dose without starving yourself.
Chia, when hydrated, can absorb up to nine times its weight in water. This quality creates a feeling of satiety and prevents you from eating uncontrollably.

Chia seeds contain selenium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, and magnesium in significant amounts. In addition, they are a perfect solution if you are lactose intolerant because they are a good source of calcium.
