Maintaining a healthy weight can be the most important factor for a healthy life. Chia seed in water is an excellent option to maintain this balance. The chia, when in contact with water, absorbs the liquid and inflates up to 10 times its size. This has a satiating effect that helps to controls the appetite.
The results of a recent study showed the highest levels of hydration and viscosity of the chia fiber hydrate in water. The people that participated in the study, showed higher satiety perception, and indicate less hunger, less desire to return to eating food short term, with the water hydrated chia fiber consumption.
