Chia Seeds Side Effects

Chia seeds are not just for making clay pots look like green-haired replicas of dogs, cows and SpongeBob.  Chia seeds are an amazing source of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. In fact, chia seeds have been cultivated for centuries, used to treat illnesses and medical conditions around the world. Let’s dispel some of the mystery behind these super-seeds.

Chia seeds contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which are known to naturally reduce blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure or are currently taking a medication to lower your blood pressure, see your doctor before adding chia seeds to your diet. He may recommend you consume smaller portions or you may be able to substitute the chia for one of your medications, allowing you to lower your blood pressure in a more healthy and natural way.

Very few studies have shown to cause negative side effects as a result of the consumption of chia seeds. Some research has linked chia consumption to excess gas, loose stools and cramping in the digestive system, but these side effects were likely caused by the dramatic increase in the level of fiber being consumed. This initial discomfort can result from increasing your fiber intake from any source. Because chia seeds are very high in fiber you should consider starting with smaller servings and building up to a full serving to avoid shocking your system.

To get the best from your chia seeds, buy certified organic 100% pure seeds. You can reap amazing health benefits from these tiny seeds. Thanks to the high dietary fiber and omega-3s, as well as many other healthful nutrients, chia seeds are used to treat conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, and to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Chia seeds also contain high levels of omega-6, which your body cannot make on its own. This helps with cell growth, regulation of certain body processes, and contributes to great skin, hair and nails. You’ll also find that chia seeds improve muscle function and increase strength and endurance.

Another amazing attribute of these tiny seeds is their capacity to absorb ten times their weight in liquid, which means you get lots of nutrients in a small package. The low calorie package then expands, making you feel full and requiring less to fill you up. If you haven’t tried chia seeds before, eat a small portion then wait for a few minutes to see if you are full.

Thanks to its ability to improve endurance and stamina, chia is a great replacement alternative for athletes or other hard working people.  At Vitalyte, we offer a delicious chia gel which provides all of the benefits of chia seeds in a highly potent form. Try our Chia Surge High Endurance Performance Gel today, and see what you have been missing.
