Chia seeds are a super food, loaded with health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids—nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving! They are also an excellent source of fiber at 10 grams per ounce (about 2 tablespoons), and contain protein and minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Chia also assists in weight loss as well as reducing glucose levels which can benefit diabetics.
