And why is it "oily" after all...? As Wayne Coates, a distinguished professor of agricultural engineering at the University of Arizona, says, "Chia seeds are the most valuable plant source of omega-3"! In addition, it is a "very protein-rich" plant, as 18 grams of pure protein and 150% of the daily norm of dietary fiber account for just 100 grams of seeds! Chia contains more fiber than flax and wheat, and at least twice as much vitamin B3 as any other product!

1. regular consumption of chia seeds (2-5 tablespoons a day) reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases by 80%;
2. high blood pressure is reduced to normal;
3. chia seeds help lose weight in 90% of cases more "easily" than without their consumption, as the body stays full longer and this prevents overeating;

Another interesting study was conducted by Dr. Vladimir Vuksan, a Ph.D. and professor at the University of Toronto. He found that in people with type 2 diabetes, consuming 3 tablespoons/day of chia seeds significantly reduced blood pressure and inflammation markers! This comparison was made against the same amount of consumed wheat bran! Importantly, the well-being of the subjects during the study improved significantly! When asked to rate the results of chia seeds' impact on their bodies, 96% gave an overall rating of – "excellent result."
