Chia seeds are among the healthiest foods on the planet.

They’re loaded with nutrients that can have important benefits for your body and brain.

Don't be fooled by the size — these tiny seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch.

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

This is particularly impressive considering that this is just a single ounce, equalling 28 grams or about two tablespoons. This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

Interestingly, if you subtract the fiber — most of which doesn’t end up as usable calories for your body — chia seeds only contain 101 calories per ounce (28 grams).

This makes them one of the world's best sources of several important nutrients, calorie for calorie.
