    I ate a  chia seed recipe today that they had at a recent raw potluck I attended as it was pretty tasty and I have a lot of chia seeds at home.

    I had eaten a big bowl so decided to check the side effects and benefits.

    I saw on the link below some cautions such as can cause one's blood pressure to go dangerously low so I got scared and pulled at the blood pressure monitor.

    I usually test high on my blood pressure but this time is was normal which I found interesting and thought might help me lower it as I do not want to take blood pressure meds even though doctors pressure me.

    the highest is has been is maybe 190/100 I think but I may be wrong on that but the bottom number is usually 80 or over in the doctor's office. This time the bottom number was 68..

    I am a little worried eating this regularly might make it drop too low but maybe eating a little each day or a few big bowls a week might help.

    Here is a list of cautions etc

    http://www.chiaseeds.us/chia-seeds-side-effects.htm

    the recipe was quite easy.

    I made some raw almond milk by blending the nuts in the vitamix with some water and then staining it through a nut or sprout bag (or you could use cheesecloth or a strainer with little holes).

    One could also use soy milk or commercial almond milk or other plant milk..I had just wanted it all raw.

    I added to this raw agave nectar.

    Then I added some fruit and let it gel. Then I topped it with a lot of fruit.

    I used kiwi, sliced strawberries, blueberries, sliced purple grapes and sliced bananas which made it very colorful but you could use whatever fruits you like.

    Chia seeds are considered a superfood and are extremely high in omega 3 fats..

    I use brand name salba sold at whole foods market and it contains a whopping 2740 mg of omega three fats per tbs which is nearly enough to 3-1000 mg fish oil caps.

    it also has

    MORE ALA Omega-3s Than Salmon
    MORE Dietary Fiber Than Flax Seed
    MORE Antioxidants Than Blueberries
    MORE Magnesium Than Broccoli
    MORE Calcium Than Whole Milk
    MORE Iron Than Spinach
    MORE Folate than Asparagus

    Also if it is put in say apple juice, it sort of gels and reduces carbs by about half and put in salad dressings or mayo can cut calories in half without changing the taste of whatever it is put in as it has no flavor. It belnds well with many foods or can be put in cereals or salad but the recipe I listed is pretty darn good as well if you want to use more of it.
     

    it may also help lower the cardiovasucular risk of diabetics 80% of whom die from heart and strokes.

    I saw this--

    • A study done at Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital tested whether taking chia seeds would lower the risk of cardiovascular complications in 20 elderly people suffering from controlled type 2 diabetes. The study's participants consumed daily doses of between 33 and 41 g of either the white chia seed called Salba, or wheat bran
