Chia seeds are low in calories but high in fiber and protein. This makes them an excellent addition to a weight loss or weight management diet. Additionally, the soluble fiber in chia seeds helps promote a feeling of fullness, reducing the likelihood of overeating.
Chia seeds are rich in nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants. These nutrients support overall health and contribute to maintaining a balanced diet. Chia seeds are a great source of dietary fiber, which aids digestion and promotes regular bowel movement.
Mangoes are a rich source of potassium, vitamin C and vitamin A. Mangoes contain an antioxidant called zeaxanthin. Zeaxanthin may play a protective role in eye health. It could prevent damage from macular degeneration; an eye condition that gets worse with age.
The fiber, potassium, and vitamin content in mangoes all help keep the arteries working and reduce the risk of heart disease. When we increase potassium and decrease sodium in the diet it helps in reducing a person’s risk of high blood pressure.
