You may wonder why we use chia seeds in INVIGOR8 Superfood Shake, so we have listed a few of benefits that you get when you add an INVIGOR8 shake to your daily menu.

Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids plus alpha-lipoic acid, fiber, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and other nutrients. The essential fatty acids increase HDL (good cholesterol) while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides. Lower levels of cholesterol improve heart health, since bad cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease.

10 Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

  1. Reduce belly fat. The insoluble and soluble fiber in chia seeds may help to slow your body’s breakdown of carbohydrates and the absorption of sugar, helping with blood sugar control. Chia’s stabilizing effect on blood sugar also fights insulin resistance, which can be tied to belly fat. Chia seeds help burn fat accumulated around the waist and abdomen. 
  2. Resist diabetes. Chia has been studies as a potential remedy for type 2 diabetes because it seems to slow glucose passage into the blood. Chia seeds also fill you up and so reduce appetite.
  3. Get More Fiber. A one-ounce serving of chia has 11 grams of dietary fiber — around a third of the prescribed everyday consumption for grown-ups. Adding some chia to your diet is a simple approach to help you get adequate fiber, which is imperative for digestive well-being.
  4. Stock up on omega-3. Chia seeds are pressed with omega-3 unsaturated fats, with about five grams in an one-ounce serving. These fats are essential for mental well-being. “There’s better transformation of omega 3s into the plasma than with flax seed,” said analyst Wayne Coates.
  5. Stronger teeth and bones. A serving of chia seeds has 18% of the recommended daily amount of calcium for oral and bone health, including prevention of osteoporosis.
  6. Remember manganese. Manganese isn’t a well-known supplement, yet it's paramount for our health. Manganese helps your body process other crucial supplements, like biotin and thiamin. It is also important for bone and dental health.
  7. Lots of phosphorus. The phosphorus in chia seeds promotes healthy bones and teeth.
  8. Excellent source of protein. Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein and do not have any cholesterol. One 28-gram serving of these super seeds has 4.4 grams of protein — almost 10% of your daily needs.
  9. Regulate appetite. Chia seeds can serve as an appetite suppressant. They also accelerate the metabolism.
  10. Give a boost to heart health. Chia has been shown in clinical studies to decrease blood sugar, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and help individuals lose weight — lowering the risk of heart disease.
