Chia seeds are a mega super food with whopping benefits. Just 1 oz. (6 tsp.) of tiny chia seeds provides 10.7 g of fiber. Since your digestive system relies on fiber to move things out of your body, chia seeds are great for digestive health. They also provide adequate amounts of omega 3s, which Americans do not get enough of. They contain antioxidants, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and protein. Add 1 to 2 Tbsp. to any smoothie to boost your daily nutritional intake
