Health Benefits Of Chia Seeds:
Considered a superfood, chia seeds have a right nutrient-profile and are considered gluten-free. According to Nutritionist Mehar Rajput, "These miniscule black seeds are loaded with fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various other macronutrients, which help prevent the storage of undesirable fats in our body. These factors not only aid weight loss, but also help promote heart-health. Besides chia seeds also help keep us full for long and manage blood sugar levels in our body."
Shilpa Shetty, through her Insta-post, further talks about the benefits of including chia seeds in our diet. She shared chia seeds are good for skin-health too. Shilpa uploaded an infographic post featuring 4 benefits of consuming chia seeds. She wrote alongside, "Chia seeds may be small, but they're incredibly rich in nutrients. The antioxidants, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids in chia seeds may promote heart health, support strong bones, and improve blood sugar management."
Shilpa also gave us tips on how to consume chia seeds to make the most of the superfood. "If you want to reap the possible benefits of chia seeds, consider incorporating them into your diet. They're a great addition to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, baked goods, and more," she mentioned in the post.
