Bauer Nutrition Review

by rose ks (2019-02-22)

The Chia seed is, typically, oval shaped and Bauer Nutrition about a millimeter in diameter. They aren't much to look at being mottled with brown gray, black and white coloration. Chia is rich in nutrients with significant levels of antioxidants, protein, oil, and dietary fiber which is mostly soluble. The Chia seed oil has a very high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, about 64 percent. Omega 3 acids are good fats, which lower cholesterol, deter cardiovascular diseases and help relieve joint pain and inflammation. The soluble quality of the dietary fiber in Chia is a great help to people watching their weight. Once ingested, the dietary fiber absorbs many times its own weigh in liquid and forms a gel type of substance in your digestive tract. This slows the breakdown of carbohydrates which, in turn, slows the conversion to sugar. This results in your body deriving more food energy from the Chia and feeling "full".
