Chia seeds are so cool! They offer a ton of nutritional value, along with other benefits. They're rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seed. Chia seeds also contain fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc among many other nutrients. Chia seeds don't need to be ground to be absorbed by the body and they can be stored for long periods of time without going rancid. I especially love how they help with hydration due to their ability to absorb up to 9-10 times their weight in water!
