Chia seeds are also good for your heart. Being a concentrated source of omega-3 as well as omega-6 fatty acids, chia seeds can lower harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing the “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.

On top of that, chia seeds contain no cholesterol. These seeds also help reduce plaque buildup and lower high blood pressure. In addition, chia seeds have plenty of magnesium and potassium that help keep your heart healthy and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

To help your brain function properly and improve your memory and concentration, chia seeds are very beneficial. Being high in omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds help keep the arteries to the brain clear of plaque. This in turn improves the communication between brain cells.

In addition, these essential fatty acids help make the cell membranes in the brain more flexible and nerve transmission more efficient, thus contributing to better brain functioning.

Simply sprinkle some chia seeds into yogurt, cereal and salad to keep your brain working properly.

Warning: Despite potential health benefits, chia seeds may cause some side effects if not consumed properly. Health experts advise not to consume these seeds in dry, raw form. Before eating the seeds, mix them in enough liquid to allow them to expand.

In addition, chia seeds may not be suitable for people who have problems swallowing, asthma, food allergies (especially to sesame seeds or mustard seeds), seasonal allergies or a constricted esophagus. Do not consume chia seeds in excess as it may increase the risk of prostate cancer.
