They also fight help fight hunger because Chia can absorb 12x its own weight expanding in your stomach and also contain the amino acid Tryptophan normally found in turkey. Tryptophan regulates appetite, sleep and improve mood. So add those two things together and you will shut those hunger signals off quicker. I did mention Diabetes, right?
