I have finished my first container of this and wow! I am 30 year old female, I workout everyday and eat very healthy and I couldn't figure out why I was so backed up. I was having a bowel movement twice a week if I was lucky.. Seemed to be like that my whole life! I added one scoop to my oatmeal in the morning and one scoop to my lentils in the afternoon and after two weeks I started going regular. It is amazing. I will not be without this product. I have tried everything.. pills, stool softeners, laxatives, detoxing, evening going to the doctor for a colonoscopy. I Actually started taking chia seeds for the health benefits and to my surprise ... I feel better than ever! This is a must have staple in my everyday diet and I will not be without this product!!!!!!
Wonderful Chia - highly recommended

Chia seeds are great, and I'm happy with Greens Plus. Highly nutritious grain, I soak chia seeds in water from 10 mins to an hour (depending on how much time I have). This forms the "chia gel", which you can store in the fridge for up to three weeks. A little chia goes a long way : ) It is said that the longer you soak it, the more available the nutrients in chia seeds become. Anyway, I only use chia in the gel form, as it's already absorbed some water, and I know how much I'm taking that way. Chia gel is great in absolutely anything - drinks, juices, smoothies, salad dressings, yogurt for those who eat dairy, or just with some honey. It hardly has any flavor, so it's a very versatile food. The outer shell is easily digested, though some people may want to blend it or buy powdered form - but I like whole seeds because they keep longer and stay fresh. I use it mainly to help maintain healthy bowel movements. I like it because it keeps the bowels moist, as it's hydrophillic. Psyllium powder is also good for maintaining healthy bowel movements. Highly recommended.
Does a body well

These chia seeds helped stimulate my digestive function and eased transit time and evacuation. They also helped to fill me up while providing a good dose of some essential fatty acids. I wish it came in a bigger size though (2 lbs) as the 454g (1 lbs) bottle only lasts a little over a month.

Excellent for sports

Excellent product for people who practice sports with intense and/or long effort. Keeps stamina up, hydrate the body ! I put a spoon in a small bottle of water and drink it during the effort. I live in Switzerland and I received my products from iherb in less than 3 days.

Help me drink more water.

I dont like to drink water too much, but with chia seed in a glass of water and some disluted oj, it help me drink the whole thing down. Very easy to drink. No weird taste whatsoever. I order for my brother one too. And he like it.

Great product, my first buy of Chia ever, so I do not have any other brand to compare with. But, very satisfied as a first time user.
