Chia seeds are very high in nutrients and these nutrients are released slowly in the body. Thus one’s energy level is given a boost and sustained over a long period of time. Chia seeds are power-packed with omega 3, iron, fiber, zinc, protein and calcium. The composition includes one third protein, one third oil and one third dietary fiber. Chia is extremely useful for weight loss because it bulks up food without adding calories and slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. This keeps a person fuller for longer and balances out sugar levels.
