Vegans Choose Omega 3 Chia Bread Instead of Fish Oil

Omega 3 is an essential oil for heart health. Although Omega 3 is most prevalent in fish, chia bread offers a new way to get this oil into your diet without a seafood diet or fish oil supplements. Vegans use chia for Omega 3 oils by adding it to other foods in seed form. Now, everyone has the opportunity to have great tasting chia bread as a healthy foundation to some great meals. Combining chia, millet, and quinoa, Food for Life's new chia bread has benefits that no other bread can offer.

Chia Bread – Weight Loss and Weight Management Benefits
Chia seeds are full of fiber. Just two teaspoons of chia seeds have almost 10 grams of fiber. Studies have shown that diets that are high in fiber often accompany lowered food cravings for better weight management and weight loss (Annals of Internal Medicine, 2015). The fiber in chia seeds is also a special fiber that is excellent for detoxifying the colon. Undigested foods cause buildup in the colon that results in harmful toxins that cause weight gain, headaches, and fatigue. The fiber packed seeds found in chia bread can clean away these harmful toxins and help your body regulate a healthy digestive tract. Chia bread contains one of the highest sources of plant-based protein, which can also keep you fuller for longer. Additionally, Chia bread is a low glycemic index bread, meaning the sugar that’s digested will convert into energy rather than being stored in the body as fat.


Chia Bread – Heart Health Benefits
Chia bread’s low glycemic properties help lower the risk of heart attacks as high blood sugar levels have been linked to increased risk of heart attacks. Additionally, it is an established understanding that Omega 3s in chia seeds reduce Inflammation and lower the risk of high cholesterol. Both the seeds and oil are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids This means that chia bread can help your body prevent heart disease and dramatically lower the risk of heart attacks, strokes, or fatal cardiac complications. Omega 3 in Chia bread not only fights inflammation surrounding the heart, it can also help fight joint pain around your entire body. Because Omega 3 is known as being anti-inflammatory, any inflamed joints can be relieved with chia seeds, making chia bread one of the healthiest breads on the market.  


Chia Bread – Energy Benefits
