According to a review by the Natural Standard Research Collaboration in 2009, two independent studies of chia seed consumption showed no effect on weight loss. Historical records indicate no dangers from chia consumption, other than possible allergic reactions. Current research supports chia's reputation as an endurance tonic. Chia's protein lacks lysine, so you shouldn't make chia your only protein source.
Participants in recent chia studies consumed 25 g of chia daily, about 2.5 tbsp. of dry seed. One tbsp. of dry chia seed provides only 68 calories, but that spoonful of seed expands 900 percent after the soaked seeds produce gel. The extra volume of gel contributes to the filling effect of chia and slows the release of nutrients in the seeds. One cup of water mixed with 2 tbsp. of chia seeds and steeped for 20 minutes provides enough chia gel for a day, says Janis Ihrig of Natural Healthy Eating. Mix the gel with an equal volume of juice and sweeten to taste.

Dr. Andrew Weil considers chia to be an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, even better than flax seed. According to a study published in 2005 in the journal "Nutrition Research," chia seed is the highest plant-based source of a-linolenic fatty acid. The researchers concluded that chia shows promise as an alternative to fish-based sources for vegetarians. According to researcher Dr. Wayne Coates, chia offers balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Weil also reports that feeding chickens chia increases the omega-3 content of their eggs and meat, and feeding cows chia increases the omega-3 content of milk.
