Dynamite comes in small packages, in this case seeds. Seeds by nature are nutritionally dense foods. They are rich in minerals, vitamins, fibre, antioxidants and essential fatty acids needed to grow the next generation of food.

Chia seeds are one of the best known  plant-based sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. They are needed for healthy hormone production, regulating blood sugar, lowering risk of heart disease and reducing inflammation. This is good for women with irregular periods,  PMS and women with PCOS who are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes,

They are rich in fibre which is necessary for colon health and clearing excess oestrogen. In fact when mixed with a liquid like water, juice, milk etc chia seeds gelatinise and form a pudding like texture which aides easy bowel movements. To top it off they are a good source of protein due to their high content of amino acids.

This little trifecta of protein, fat and fibre(not ignoring all the other health benefits) make chia seeds an excellent breakfast food that will regulate cortisol (stress hormone), keep you fuller for longer with sustained energy and set you up for a great day!
