It can come as no surprise that we here at Lulitonix just love our chia seeds. They’ve snagged starring roles in our super luscious best-thing-ever power potion, Chia Life, sparkle and illuminate our incredibly hydrating, longevity elixir, LifeTonic, and have a cameo appearance blended up in our go-to Green Blend, KICK!. We love the consistency, the fun textural mouthfeel, and we won’t even mention that catchy “ch-ch-ch-chia” that we sing-song on an embarrassingly regular basis under our breath. (But we digress.)
So what are some of the health benefits of Chia, you ask?
Well, kitschy 80s nostalgia aside, Chia Seeds are a truly amazing and versatile superfood. A superb source of plant-based omega-3 oils, fiber, and protein, they also provide sustained hydration and energy--great for all you athletes! Touted as a weight-loss ally (in part because they expand in your stomach, keeping you satiated), they are said to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and regulate blood sugar. We would say that all they don’t do is take out the trash, but (ahem) now that we mention it…
