The New Superfood: Chia Seeds

A few weeks ago, the owner of a natural food store recommended that I try out Chia Seeds, an incredible source of Omega 3 that is absorbed into the body far better than other sources of Omega 3. And it’s true…I’ve been eating a tablespoon every day of Chia Seeds in my yogurt, and I have been feeling calmer and more energetic over the last few weeks, maybe Chia seeds really are a new wonder food?

Here’s a video of Dr. Oz teaching about the benefits of Chia Seed:


  1. Hi Jenny,

  6. Chia is my favorite. I grew up drinking them! Water, Rose Water, sugar and Chia is a popular Persian drink. You should def try in your drinks. Lemonade, ice tea, etc. I keep a pitcher of chia drinks in the fridg

  7. Nursing Moms, be careful! For some reason my 4 month-old got extremely gassy and uncomfortable when I started drinking chia. Within 24 hours of my first tablespoon he was fussy and 24 hours after I decided to stop he went back to normal… I was so disappointed because I’ve heard so many good things!

  8. At minute 48:20 Dr. Greger talks about the importance of grounding Chia seeds for optimal omega 3 absorption. By the way the Food revolution summit starting today, best summit !

  9. I love chia too! Thanks for posting the link to the video.

  10. My concern about Chia is that it was used by the ancient Aztec & Mayan civilizations, it means “strength” . They used it in religious ceremonies & sacrifices and believed Chia to have supernatural powers.
    That gave them strength & stamina . I’m doing research on it bcuz to make sure there is zero chance of there being any type of occult ties to it . I don’t think so and it sounds to have great nutritional value so far but if anyone happens to know exactly how they used it in sacrifices please reply. Thanks.
