Geek Out with Dr. Sara:

Don’t be concerned about the high number of calories found in chia seeds. Chia seeds have long been used in central and South American folk medicine and as a staple food for increased energy and overall health. Modern science is beginning to recognize and study the many health benefits of chia as well. Although they are high in calories, they also contain omega 3 and 6 oils, which have been proven to increase insulin sensitivity in the body. Since insulin insensitivity causes weight gain, obesity, and type-2 diabetes, consuming chia seeds can actually promote weight loss and overall health.
