Chia seeds are the tiny black seeds of the chia plant. In fact, “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength”.


Chia seeds contain large amounts of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, plenty of high quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants.


They may improve digestive health, blood levels of heart-healthy omega-3s, and risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.
