The short-chain omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, is close to useless in improving our health. The average American can convert only about 3% to 5% of it into what he or she really needs, the phospholipid-based long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. So what are the real reasons why chia seeds are healthy for us?

(1)Chia seeds are high in soluble fiber. Soluble fiber partly blocks the absorption of calories from fat. Also, soluble fiber feeds the good bacteria in the human digestive tract and greatly increases their numbers. The good bacteria manufacture beneficial chemicals which (1)kill the bad bacteria, (2)lower blood pressure, (3)cause weight loss, (4)prevent cancer, (5)prevent clogged arteries by improving cholesterol numbers, and (6)prevent constipation.

(2)Chia seeds are high in lignans. Lignans are phytoestrogens that prevent heart disease, cancer, and many other killer diseases. To derive the full health benefit from lignans, we only need to eat an extremely, extremely, extremely small amount of chia seeds or ground flaxseeds every other day.

(3)Chia seeds are high in phytate. Phytate is a powerful antioxidant that prevents heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and many other killer diseases. Phytate partly blocks the absorption of calories from starch and protein. Phytate partly blocks the absorption of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. Phytate partly blocks the absorption of iron, which is a cancer-causing and artery-clogging pro-oxidant. Phytate is greatly helpful to diabetics by partly preventing the breakdown of starch into glucose. Phytate slightly reduces the severity of flatulence.

(4)Chia seeds are high in phytosterols. Phytosterols partly block the absorption of cholesterol from our intestines by mimicking the chemical structure of the cholesterol molecule.

I recently found out about using chia seed to supplement fiber intake. I've been hooked on a chia seed/fruit juice drink I've been getting at the natural supermarket. It's delicious but pretty expensive ($3.00 a bottle). I decided to try and find chia seeds and make my own! I was happy to find that these Nutiva chia seeds are pretty inexpensive and they hydrate very nicely. I put 2 tbsp into a glass of water and popped it in the fridge at bedtime. The next morning I had nicely gelled chia seeds that were ready for the drinkin'! I mixed the hydrated seeds with a small amount of fruit juice and the result was almost exactly like the expensive drink from the supermarket. I'm very happy with these seeds and will buy them again.

Received their former packaging. No biggie. But then I found suspicious looking "seeds." First there was a tiny twig, but these look like something else entirely. Showed up in 3 batches of chia pudding I made.

I am so disgusted. When I opened the bag there were bugs and webbing on the inside edges of the bag. Also, as previous reviewers have mentioned, there were little twig-like things mixed in with the seeds. Very disappointed with this brand! I'm glad that Amazon refunded my money.

I put these in my water our lemonade and stir them up every morning. They form a little gel coating that is virtually tasteless. They hold 10x their weight in water, so they are very helpful before a workout or when you're feeling a bit dehydrated. My husband loves them too, and I can barely keep them in the house. Love this product!

Okay, I am falling in love with these little guys! They can be mixed in almost anything and are great as a topping as I found out today.
I have found that this brand is just fine. The seeds are black with some white mixed in. The smell is lightly nutty and there really is no taste, just feel in the mouth. One person mentioned worms being in the pack. I'm not sure if they actually found worms but they said they saw the seeds moving around in the bag. Not to worry! They are very little and the sack itself creates static inside which makes them look like they are moving around. The quality is great. No junk in the bag and all the seeds gel up as they are supposed to if real.
I've been mixing the seeds in my yogurt and today topped my peanut butter toast with them. The consistency is similar to seeds in blueberries or raspberries and they do tend to get stuck in your teeth and gel while there too. So you may want to swish something in your mouth really well or brush your teeth after eating them.
For new users, this product will quickly clear up digestive issues and if you use too much you might get plugged up, if you know what I mean. To counter act this you can also eat, or stir into tea or coffee, a couple of teaspoons of organic coconut oil. That is good for you too and tastes like candy to me. :)
I love this product and think you will too. Join me in getting healthier by eating these little beauties!

Terrible. There was a mix of colors, the seeds were immature, and there were tons of weed seeds (tiny black seeds) that other brands didn't have. Returning the product. Any suggestions on better brands?
