Health and Beauty Benefits of Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds were a staple in the diets of the Aztecs and Mayans and known for their ability to increase stamina and energy over long periods of time.1
Chia seeds are a wonderful source of essential fatty acids (EFAs), especially for those looking for a vegan source. We all need to consume these necessary fatty acids, since our bodies are not able to produce them. EFAs “support heart health and beautiful skin, hair and nails."
The chia beverages contain 6g of dietary fiber, 4g of protein, 2500 mg Omega-3 fatty acids, 965 mg Omega-6, and 365 mg Omega-9. The chia snacks contain 4g of dietary fiber, 2g of protein, 1200 mg Omega-3, 500 mg Omega-6, and 210 mg Omega-9.
For contrast, Kirkland Signature Natural Omega-3 fish oil softgels, at the recommended daily dose of three gels per day, provide 900 mg of Total Omega-3 Fatty Acids. So drinking a Mamma Chia Organic Beverage or eating a Mamma Chia Organic Snack would provide more Omega-3 fatty acids than taking the Kirkland fish oil supplement.
The high fiber content in chia seed makes them great for cleaning out your colon.
My Thoughts???

I've read so much about chia seeds on health blogs lately. I just never got around to trying them. Mamma Chia and FitFluential sent me both the organic black and organic white chia seeds. I tried them first in my smoothies and loved them!!! I noticed that I had to remind myself to snack later on in the morning because they kept me fuller longer. 

I packed on some pounds right after my surgery last week. I added the chia seeds to my diet to hopefully help me get back on track.... and it definitely did! I added them to my oatmeal, soups, and salsa. It was an easy way to sneak in a little extra nutrition. 

I also received the Chia Squeezes. I only tried two before Caleb took over and ate the rest! He loved them and I was happy knowing it was a healthier snack choice for him. They have a great consistency and taste for on-the-go snacking. 

I also tried the Coconut Mango Vitality drink. It was sooo good! We took some out on the boat one weekend and it was like tasting a tropical beachy drink. It was refreshing on a hot summer day and it's much healthier than a coke. 

Wanna know something exciting? I actually get to giveaway some of their amazing products!!!

The winner receives:

·         One week’s supply of Mamma Chia products - 7 Chia Squeezes (varied flavors) and 7 beverage vouchers
·         One copy of Janie’s book – Chia Vitality
·         One Mamma Chia T-Shirt
·         Total retail value: $75
