Recently, a patient complains of difficulty in swallowing, after daily consume a teaspoon of seeds in which they drank a glass of water. One reason through which to lose weight is because the seeds are spread when mixed with water and makes you feel fuller for longer. However, eating a tablespoon of dry seeds and drink water will not lead a better experience, because the seeds are spread before they reached to your stomach.
Much safer is to immerse the seeds in water before eating. Once dipped, the seed develops a gelatin shell which some believe helps with movement through the digestive tract. Other evidence suggests that consumption of minced seeds than all the seeds, provided a significantly greater amount of omega-3 fatty acids are broken down quickly into the bloodstream.
When added in some recipes, the body can absorb the nutrients in the seeds (in an appropriate amount), whether minced or submerged. If you want to keep these benefits, in addition we offer several recipes chia seed:
