Despite the amazing benefits of this food, there was one goal in mind when I started adding this to my daily diet, yup, that’s right, to relieve my Second Brain, better known as the “Gut”! There is not one women on the planet (at least that I have met), who has not suffered from Good Ol “Constipation”, Yikes! Not fun! Not only do you go through the motions of bloating and low energy, but this effects the whole digestive system, which needs to be working properly, to achieve optimum health! I also believe that as women, we rely on our second brain much more then men, to listen and hear our gut instincts! Now I can write a whole article on women’s intuition (possibly a future blog) but for now, if any of you happen to suffer from constipation, get relief for your second brain, by adding Chia Seeds to your daily diet!
Here are additional benefits of Chia Seeds:
*Highest plant source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3’s have many health benefits and are considered an essential fatty acid for normal metabolism, the body cannot make Omega 3 fatty acids on its own, so we must obtain them from our daily diet. This can also help with the balance of Omega 6 oils, which cause inflammation, obesity, and depression. Chia by weight contains more omega 3 then salmon, making this a perfect option for vegetarians and people who do not get enough fish in there diet.
*Balance Blood Sugar, Making this great for diabetics and effective for hyperglycemia. Chia has a unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber combined to slow down the body’s conversion of starches into sugars. If you eat chia with a meal, it will help you turn your food into constant steady energy, rather then a series of ups and downs that result in fatigue.
*Weight Loss. Chia seeds are a natural effective aid to healthy weight loss. The fiber in Chia Seeds helps metabolize carbohydrates and curb the appetite. You can easily add these seeds to your snacks during the day or any of your meals. Add to salads, veggies, protein drinks, or eat alone. They are crunchy, nutty and will quench the need to chew on something.
Here’s to having a clear head and brain!
