Is chia seeds good for PCOS?

 
Not only do chia seeds taste good (with the right recipe) but it’s shown to have positive benefits for women with PCOS. Studies from the British Journal of Nutrition show that chia seeds can prevent, or normalize, insulin resistance (1). Insulin resistance is one of the symptoms of PCOS. 
 
Research from a 2017 Medical News Study Today, identifies that women with PCOS are 4x more likely to develop diabetes in their lifetime.
 

Do Chia Seeds Affect Hormones?

 
Flax Seeds are high in lignans. Lignans are digested and turned into Enterolignans once they come in contact with the bacteria in the GI tract. Enterolignans fit into estrogen receptors in the body very well. Once in place, they can block the actions of the body’s estrogen. This may have positive effects on future research for hormone-related cancers like breast cancer.
 
Can you drink chia seeds every day?
 
Chia seeds are high in fiber. Every one ounce of chia seeds contains 11 grams of fiber. The typical American diet is low in fiber. If you are new to fiber, I would suggest a gradual increase in your fiber intake. Too much fiber can cause digestive problems such as bloating, constipation, and stomach pain.
 
These symptoms can become particularly more likely to occur if you are not hydrated. Fiber pulls water from the digestive tract to help navigate its way down the track. If you are not someone who drinks adequate water, constipation and stomach pain may be evident
 

Is there any Side Effect of Chia Seeds?

 
Chia seeds are not exempt from any side effects. Chia seeds can produce an allergic reaction in people who have an allergy. If you are unsure if you are allergic to chia seeds, speak with your physician before incorporating it into your diet
 
Chia is a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Too much Omega 3 can magnify the effects of blood-thinning medications such as aspirin and coumadin (2). Taking Omega 3 fatty acid-rich foods may also increase your fasting blood sugars. If you or anyone you love is looking to add chia seeds to their diet make sure to mention it to your doctor on your next check-up
 
As mentioned earlier, not to sound like a broken record. Chia seeds are infamous for their gelatinous properties. They absorb water and become a jelly-like consistency. If chia seeds are consumed by someone who isn’t hydrated, constipation and abdominal pain may become an issue
 

Health Benefits of Chia Seeds?

 
Chia seeds are nutrient-dense. Each one ounce of chia seeds contains 11 grams of fiber. Chia seeds contain 20 % of the recommended daily value of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is necessary to absorb calcium
 
In women with PCOS, The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is about 67-85 percent (3). Without enough Vitamin D the body cannot absorb calcium which may lead to osteoporosis
