Chia seeds: superfood for weight loss
What is the secret of the success of Latin American seeds? Chia contain a huge amount of insoluble fiber - a carbohydrate with a long chain of assimilation. Upon contact with water, the fiber absorbs water, and the tiny seeds increase twelvefold. In addition, a tablespoon of seeds contains 5 grams of fiber and 60 calories: they do not have a gram of sugar! "At the same time, they have protein and fats in them, and they do not cause the release of insulin, as sugar does," says nutritionist Carolyn Brown. "Chia is charged with energy and saturated, which helps not to overeat and stay off snacks during the working day." But that's not all. In 30 grams of seeds contains three times more iron than in a bunch of spinach, and twice as many minerals than in a banana.
