are ten benefits to using chia seed in your life. Chia
seed provides ample calcium and protein to your tissues. The

loving. The seed can soak up ten times its weight in water. Do this fun
experiment. Put one tablespoon of chia seed in a cup of water
and stir. Wait a few hours and see what happens. When
inside your body, the seeds help you stay hydrated longer, and retain
electrolytes in your bodily fluids.
Easily digestible. The shells are easily broken down, even when
swallowed whole. This is an improvement over flax seed, which
have to be ground up to be digested properly. If you eat flax
seed whole, it will just pass through.
Concentrated. If I could only take one cup of food for a few
days, I'd choose chia! The food value per volume is simply
astounding. You don't need much.
Mild tasting. Unlike some seeds, the flavor is very mild.
The mild taste makes it easy to put in sauces, smoothies, breads,
puddings, and whatever you want. They won't really change the
taste, but will add to your nutrition!

experiment an endurance hike with friends. They divided up into

even finish at all.
Versatile. The seeds can be used to replace less-healthy fat in
just about any recipe. You can use them uncooked
in salad dressings, spreads, fruit shakes, ice cream, and just about
anything you want. You can also add them to cookies, cakes,
muffins, and other baked goods. I usually just mix in a couple
of teaspoons to my juice or water and drink them down!
Slimming and trimming. Yes, the seeds will help you lose weight,
for two reasons. The first reason is that they are so filling
that you will eat less of other foods. The second reason is that
they actually bulk up and cleanse your body of old "junk" in
Endurance enhancing. Chia seeds are known as the "Indian
Running Food". Also, the ancient Aztec warriors used chia
seed during their conquests. I'm a runner, and I've used chia
seed to enhance stamina and endurance on my mountain runs, some of
which are several hours long!
Regenerating. After eating, the nutrients travel to the cells
very quickly due to the ease in digestion and assimilation. Use
them when you want to build or regenerate healthy body tissue.
