Chia seeds are a wonderful super food rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation in the body.
They are high in calcium and are a great source of fibre and protein. With their ability to hold 9 times their weight in water, chia seeds prolong hydration and retain electrolytes in the body, especially during exertion or exercise.
