Chia seeds are a small but great source of amazingness

First they are loaded with essential nutrients like omega-3s, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Chia also packs an impressive 3 grams of protein and 5 grams of hunger-crushing fiber in a tablespoon. The seed forms a gel when mixed in water (they hold up to 10 times their weight in liquid), they digest slowly, making them a powerful force against the nibbling—which is great for those looking to control cravings and portions.

So go ahead and spoon Some Into Your Detox Water combining 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon or lime juice. You can even add 1 teaspoons of Manuka honey. Let the seeds soak for few hours before drinking.

*Chia seeds can stabilize blood sugar, boost weight loss, keep your hunger away and even help keep your body hydrated throughout the day.

*Chia seeds are one of the best plant-based sources of omega-3s. Omega-3s act as an anti-inflammatory, lower blood triglycerides and also help you lose weight. They also can decrease the risk of heart disease in the same way as those found in fish.

*Chia seeds pack in an impressive 5 grams of fiber in just one tablespoons, making it a fantastic appetite suppressant and one of the weight loss foods. The fiber slows down the absorption of nutrients and the conversion of carbohydrates to sugar, so you will be less likely to munch an hour after your meal. Fiber lowers the risk of heart disease and type II diabetes, also recent research proved that fiber significantly lowers the overall risk of death, meaning that tiny tablespoon of chia seeds will help you live a longer, healthier—and slimmer—life.

*Chia seeds produce the energy you need to fuel your days through powerful nutrients. Chia seeds are rich in protein, fats and fiber but low in carbohydrates. They stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels, preventing cravings and overeating later.

*Chia is actually the Mayan word for “strength”. It was known as a ‘running food’ in ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures.

And since this mega-hydrating seed is packed with fiber and protein to help you feel energized and build lean muscle, it will help you go through your gym sessions at maximum power.
