About Nutriseed Raw Chia Seeds
Irregular bowel function is a common side effect for cancer patients; chia seeds offer an incredible solution as they help digestive function and cleanse the bowel.
Chia seeds are tiny seeds which are a member of the mint family. They are entirely neutral tasting, and, when soaked in water or other liquids, swell up and absorb up to 9 times their weight in liquid. They are excellent at helping to alleviate constipation and sluggish digestion by adding bulk and water to stools. Chia seeds are high in fibre, as well as being rich in other beneficial nutrients.
A 1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains:
- Fiber: 11 grams.
- Protein: 4 grams.
- Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
- Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
- Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
- Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
- Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
- They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.
How do I use it?
For a tasty chia pudding, add a few tablespoons of chia seeds to a milk of your choice (eg. cow's milk, almond or coconut milk) together with some honey and leave to soak for a few hours, or ideally overnight. Add fruit of your choice to serve.
