Chia seed benefits in diabetes

Chia seed is rich in fiber, healthy fat, minerals, and protein. In this study, 77 overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes took 30 grams of chia seeds per 1,000 calories per day, or an oat bran placebo, while on a calorie-restricted diet. After six months, the chia group had lost 4.2 pounds compared to less than 1 pound for placebo; saw a 2.1 inch reduction in waist size vs. less than 1 inch; and saw signs of inflammation decline and metabolism increase, compared to placebo. Doctors said chia is a safe way to help manage type 2 diabetes.
