1. Heart Health
A happy, healthy heart is key to overall good health. It's responsible for pumping nutrient-rich blood throughout your body and supplying oxygen while removing toxins and waste. The essential Omega-3 fatty acids in chia seeds can help reduce the risk of developing several heart-related health conditions, including heart disease. Each pouch of Chia Squeeze contains 1200mg of Omega-3, the full daily recommended amount from the American Heart Association.
2. Reducing Inflammation
Chronic inflammation can lead to health conditions like heart disease and cancer. Omega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants found in chia seeds can help fight off inflammation in the body and speed up the recovery process your body needs to heal in between physical activities.
3. Blood Sugar Levels
Prebiotic fiber from chia can also help to lower high blood pressure, which also reduces the risk of developing heart disease. That same fiber may also help to reduce insulin resistance and improve blood sugar levels, reducing your risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
4. Staying Hydrated
Because chia seeds absorb thirty times their weight in water, they are well-equipped in aiding with the regulation of body fluid levels and retaining electrolytes. These are both key in the battle against dehydration. You may be familiar with the viral TikTok trend of "Internal Shower" drinks and key to the benefits are soaked chia. Similarly, each Chia Squeeze pouch is packed with hydrated seeds that are ready to help prolong your hydration.
5. Weight Management
These hydrated chia seeds, full of prebiotic fiber, help to increase your feeling of fullness and makes for a great meal replacement. Even just one Chia Squeeze allows you feel fuller despite eating less and satisfies cravings between meals.
5. Bone Health
Chia seeds have several micro-nutrients that are vital for bone health, including magnesium and phosphorus. Calcium in chia is also vital for healthy bone, muscle, and nerve functioning. When compared gram for gram, chia seeds have more calcium than a glass of dairy milk!
5. Extra Energy Boost
Chia seeds are a good source of iron, which is needed for the healthy transportation of oxygen around the body, a process critical to maintaining healthy bodily functions during any activity. The result of a highly efficient oxygen-flow is sustained energy, vitality and strength!
