Diets are a bore. Most are sabotaged by hunger pangs, while others lack good nutrition. There’s no quick fix for weight loss, but dietitians are now widely recommending chia as a versatile ingredient that can boost nutritional value while increasing satiety. Experts like Dr. Oz recommend chia seeds as a healthy way to manage appetite. Men’s Fitness says of chia: “Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, soluble fiber, and even a little bit of protein, these tiny seeds can elevate just about any meal or snack to a nutritional powerhouse.” And ‘Biggest Loser’ star, Rachel Beller, MS, RD, goes further, noting that Salba Chia is, “My absolute, ultimate, favorite fiber, antioxidant and omega-3 booster!” Here’s why Salba chia is a dieter’s new ally:
- Boosts Nutrition: Salba chia is the richest whole food source of Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA) and fiber found in nature on a gram for gram basis. Every 15g serving of Salba provides over 3,400 mg of Omega-3s (ALA) – 800% more Omega-3 (ALA) than salmon (EPA/DHA). Salba has less than 1 g net carbohydrate per serving.
- Curbs Appetite: Each serving contains 5.1g of dietary fiber to support healthy digestion and increase satiety, which can help to ward of cravings and sugar crashes. Salba chia seeds absorb many times their weight in water, which helps to slow digestion and leave you feeling fuller for longer.
