Chia Seed is stomach-friendly because it’s easy to digest, and it goes wonderfully with a long list of ingredients because its flavor complements a variety of recipes.

It’s also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, bone-building minerals, and antioxidants. It’s even been found that this wonder seed contains anti-cancer properties, and it’s known to help lower blood sugar levels, support healthy digestion, and detoxify the body.
