A new analysis by Axios found that chia is one of the best sources of protein, magnesium and vitamin D for people with mild to moderate arthritis.
The analysis of more than a million people from the National Institutes of Health found that those who ate the highest amounts of chia also had the best bone health.
It also showed that those eating chia had less weight gain and had lower risk of developing heart disease.
The findings were released in the journal The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
“Chia seeds are rich in phytochemicals that can be absorbed into the bloodstream and improve the health of the body,” said Dr. Andrew M. Schlosser, director of the Nutrition Program at the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, in a statement.
“This is particularly important because chia’s rich phytochemical content in seeds is particularly beneficial for bone health.”
The analysis also found that people who ate chia for the longest periods of time had the most significant improvements in bone health compared to people who didn’t eat it.
Chia is a type of lentil that is a high source of protein and nutrients.
The seeds are high in dietary fiber, which is good for people who are gluten intolerant or are trying to get their daily dose of vitamin D.
The researchers found that participants who ate about three servings a day had a significant improvement in their bone health, and those who had eaten two servings a week had the least.
Chio-1, a type found in chia, is a vitamin-enriched compound that helps to help prevent osteoporosis, as well as improve bone health and help to fight infection.
It’s also a source of vitamin A, which can help to prevent and treat skin infections.
There are several studies to show the positive health effects of chio-2, which also contains vitamin A and is also found in some seeds.
The study was funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
