I and Ayu did shared on buying Chia Seeds from Arlena. 1 packet quite expensive that cost us RM30 per packet. So I did told you that I shared it Ayu …so I just pay RM15 for the Chia Seeds. Therefore, I listed out the benefits of Chia Seeds.

Help weight loss:
Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.

Feel fuller faster:
They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
Hydration for athletes: They are also great for athletes because the “chia gel” can hydrate the body.

Reduce your blood pressure:
There’s evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure.

Omega-3:
They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!

Benefits for diabetes: Because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.

They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don’t need to be ground up.

I’ve once didn’t drink my Chia that already been soaked it for overnight and left it over 2 days in my tumbler. Then it became like bean sprout all over my tumbler. See below picture:

Then, after I’d found that the Chia seed not a seed anymore, so I decided to not flush it in the toilet instead I threw them in front of my house garden. Guess what, it turn out to be a very beautiful green leaves that round in shape. See below pictures:
