  • With Chia seeds, if they are ate whole (added in yogurt, etc) won’t their primary benefit be fiber and saitey? Since it is difficult to effectively chew them up, wouldn’t it be necessary to put them in a blender in order to get the FULL (I wonder about the %?) Benefits of the proteins, OMEGAs and nutrients?…….. Because often times I believe, whole grains are often digested intact, as anyone who has eaten corn or those 13 multi-grain breads can attest to.

  • Just please be sure to ear Chia seeds in a lot of liquid, i.e. in smoothies, cooked with oatmeal, or make Chia pudding. There have been cases where people were taking Chia straight from a tbsp alone and they suffocated as the seeds swelled in their throats. These seeds need liquid to swell to their edible size.

  • 1. Helps to lose weight 2.protects you from heart failure. I’m alive I’m alive thanks I use to drink chia seeds with water

  • This might be a dumb question…If I’m fasting & eating only one meal a day in the evenings, can I put some chia seeds into my coffee in the morning to help me cut cravings & maybe give me alil more energy w/o raising blood sugar or insulin? (One day I hope to quit coffee too)

  • Can I give it to my 4 years old daughter? If yes then how much? Is it advicable to take for those who are suffering from high uric acid?

  • My question is does the human body capable of breaking down the shell of the seed so we can process it if it’s like corn what good is it?
    It seems to me that you have to put it in a food processor to crack the sea. Scoping the get the benefits from it.

  • I recently learned chia seeds is full of lectin, toxic for gut lining. Please read “The Plant Paradox” written by Dr Steven Guidry, eye-opening book!!!!

  • Good informational video, love chia seeds! The only thing is that Colombus discovered the entire continent of America (actually Dominican Republic was first), not The United States of America only. Wrong flag, it would have been better to see the map instead.

  • For1 year now, I eat 4tbls in half a 1liter of yogurt and 1 banana. I dont soak them at all, like them crunchy.
    My nails were very frail and now they are strong, my hair is better and my digestion great.

  • I have been giving to my dog for over a year, since her ACL surgery, coat grew back thick and healthy, mixed with her food she loves it….

  • i eat it everyday for 3months now, no more heart burn,my energy is high for 58 years old..my skin never get dry anymore and i’m so happy about it..i use to spend money for vitamins but now only chia seeds everyday and i feel great….

  • Is there any superfood out there that doesn’t have a video warning of side effects? The facts are chia seeds are still one of the world’s most healthiest foods you can add to your daily diet.

  • Great but I don’t know about all the benefit he mention in this video, but one thing I can assures you is that Chia seeds are great for your intestinal and stomach health, it works to help you remove as much stool out your system (intestine) and if you suffer from heartburn Chia seeds will alleviate at least 70% of your distress. This is my formula (please don’t tell nobody is a protected personal secret), I mix 4 tablespoon in a 64 fl. oz. of water and to add taste I uses gatorade or lemonade powder (your choice of how much), let it sit for few hours or until all the Chia seeds are on the bottom of the container then eventually I drink a glass of Chia seeds in a period of one day or two and then expect the miracle of these seeds. In case that if you don’t experiences anything the first time you try it please don’t give up because sooner or later it will kick in your intestines and you’ll be surprised!!

  • I am a type two diabetic. My morning sugars were high as 16. My doctor finally put me on insulin and it dropped slightly to about 12. I started taking chia and it plummeted. I have even been waking up with 6 and 7. I have no doubt chia is helping me control my sugar.

    I still have to return to the doctor to discuss this with him. I want to know why chia is not prescribed for type two diabetics from the get go. I have been suffering high sugar and struggling with various pills and even insulin.
    As my doctor explained though my sugars are satisfactory in the daytime my liver pumps out sugar at night.

    I have been taking the chia seeds dry and swallowing it with a mouthful of water. I suspect (and please guide me if anyone can) that taking it dry helps absorb more sugar as the chia seeds swell.

    I have also read that one should take chia after it has absorbed water as the benefits are greater. I am doing so as well now by adding a teaspoon in a shake that I take in the day. At night I take one teaspoon of dry seeds.

    The only side effect is that I found I became slightly constipated and that is why I reduced the amount taken to only two teaspoons per day.

    A diabetic friend of mine tells me that he stopped taking chia because it dropped his sugar way too much!

    Lastly, Bless the Mayans for their wisdom.❤️
    Chia seeds has been a turning point in my battle with diabetes. ( it is genetic and occurs in both sides of my family, my mother and all her siblings were diabetic)

  • Thank you, Joe. I have learned so much watching your videos and whatever Authority Nutrition sends me in e-mails. The information has caused me to change how I eat and, thus, I feel so much better. Didn’t happen over-night, but it did happen. A1c=5.7 (type 2 diabetes) and blood pressure has come down. We really are what we consume, aren’t we?
    Happy holidays!

  • This is a clickbait video and totally pathetic. Sick people take prescription drugs and you blame side effects on naturally occurring chia seeds instead of drugs that always kick your body in some imbalance?
    Delete this video!

  • First day I went to the toilet frequently lots of fluid out put. One week after, frequently expelling “clean” gas then a feeling of relief. Energy levels up!

  • I had a personal trainer in the gym ask me why I always spent at least 2 hours in the gym everyday he said it was a very long workout session I told him simple I eat chia seeds with Greek yoghurt

  • First day I went to the toilet frequently lots of fluid out put. One week after, frequently expelling “clean” gas then a feeling of relief. Energy levels up!

  • My mixture is Flax seeds,Chia seeds,Hemp seeds,Sunflower seeds,Pumpkin seeds,Sesame seeds all grind-ed except the hemp seeds

    I make enough for about one week and leave in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

    I will add some cinnamon plus a couple of tbs of the mixture to oatmeal,,and add soy.or almond milk and some berries.I will let it all soak for about fifteen minutes.

  • Can I give it to my 4 years old daughter? If yes then how much? Is it advicable to take for those who are suffering from high uric acid?

  • I have been implementing this specific cholesterol manual “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) for high cholesterol level. Have been utilizing it for around several weeks and also have noticed my Cholesterol numbers dropped enough that I do not fight with my Doctor. any further. Stalin seems to have side-effects, thus i need to quit applying it. I expect the next blood examination..

  • My blood pressure was in the low 130 s, I drink 1 once of chia s day, blood pressure down to 117/63. This is the only change I’ve made to my life style.

  • I find it funny how when scientists discover something in an item they automatically push to market it. Just because something contains certain attributes, doesn’t mean your body will intake it.. it’s like an Egg Shell. It contains calcium.. doesn’t mean if you eat it you’ll gain calcium.. lmfao

Plus add 2 tbls pure apple cider vinegar… Add all the above to approx 52 FL oz boiling water,,, turn of heat, and let seep for about 15mins….. I then pour the whole contents into a wide neck bottle….place lid on and let chill in fridge…. Drink twice a day untill gone…takes about 3days to empty your bottle…. Shake eah time before you pour out every drink……. When empty bottle remains.. empty and discard lemon riinds…rinse out bottle and make a fresh batch…… I been using this for two weeks now and lost 3 lbs.
