• Benefits of Chia Seeds
  • Heart Disease. Chia seeds contain plenty of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA, which contributes to HDL, or “good” cholesterol, in the cardiovascular system. The seeds can also reduce blood pressure, triglycerides, and insulin resistance.
  • Diabetes. Fiber controls blood sugar since it isn’t absorbed into the bloodstream like other carbohydrates, and chia seeds are rich in soluble fiber. This can help diabetics stabilize blood sugar after meals and improve insulin sensitivity.
  • Osteoporosis. Chia seeds are a great source of several bone-building micronutrients, like phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and of course, calcium (in fact, the seeds contain more calcium than most dairy products). These minerals also keep your teeth healthy.
  • Obesity. The fiber in chia seeds slows the absorption of food which helps keep you fuller longer, thereby decreasing the number of calories you consume. Protein, an important weight-loss nutrient, is also abundant in chia seeds. Add chia seeds into your existing weight-loss strategy for best results.
  • Skin ailments. Antioxidants have been shown to help with skin wrinkles, omega-3s keep skin hydrated, and the anti-inflammatory properties of chia could help treat acne.
  • Cancer. The antioxidants in chia seeds help stabilize free radicals, which damage cells in the body and could potentially lead to cancerous growth. Additionally, the omega-3s have been potentially linked to limiting cell growth in breast and cervical cancers.
  • Chronic Inflammation. In a study of 20 diabetics, eating chia seeds every day reduced the inflammation marker hs-CRP. Chronic inflammation contributes to a host of other diseases and doesn’t typically have strong symptoms. For more information, refer to our previous blog post about the dangers of chronic inflammation.

Obviously, it’s a worthwhile endeavor to add chia seeds into your diet, and luckily, there are many simple ways to consume them! The seeds have a bland flavor, so you can add them to virtually any dish. Here are some ideas for incorporating chia seeds into your diet:


  • Chia seed pudding. Just mix ½ cup of your favorite milk with 2 tbsp of chia seeds and refrigerate at least 3 hours, or until the liquid has thickened into a pudding texture.
  • Oatmeal and cereal. Make overnight oatmeal with oats, milk and/or yogurt, and chia seeds. Or try sprinkling the seeds over a bowl of fresh oatmeal or cold cereal.
  • Smoothies and shakes. Blend chia seeds (about 1 tbsp) into your next smoothie or protein shake for an added energy boost.
  • Water, juice, or tea. Chia seeds can be mixed into beverages for an interesting texture. Combine 1 tbsp per 16 oz of liquid and enjoy.
  • Homemade fruit jam. For a no-sugar-added version of fruit jam, mash 1 cup of your favorite juicy fruit and add 1 tbsp of chia seeds. The seeds will thicken the jam naturally, so you don’t even need to add pectin or sweetener!
  • Stews, sauces, and dressings. Given their neutral flavor, chia seeds can be used to thicken a variety of stews, sauces, dips, or salad dressings.
  • Rice. Sprinkle chia seeds into your rice dishes for a barely-noticeable crunch.
  • Cooked vegetables. Next time you saute a pan of veggies, try chia seeds as a garnish.
  • Baked goods. You can add chia seeds to almost any baked good, from muffins to bread to cake. They shouldn’t affect the recipe if you add 1-2 tbsp to the batter.
  • Pancakes. Simply mix 1 tbsp of seeds into the pancake batter for a healthier version of this morning treat.
  • As an egg substitute. Soak 1 tbsp of chia seeds in 3 tbsp of water and add to recipes in place of an egg.
