Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber – they contain between 34-40 g per 100g. About 85%-90% as insoluble fiber, whereas the remaining 10-15% as soluble fiber.
A high fiber diet is usually associated with a decreased risk of heart attack, and a decreased risk for type 2 diabetes. Eating enough fiber at every meal, keeps you full longer and may help you lose weight and/or maintain a healthy weight. 
The high fiber content in chia seeds also make them a PREbiotic food – the soluble fiber fraction functions as “food” for the beneficial bacteria in your gut (intestinal microbiome), that helps bacteria thrive.
When your intestinal microbiota is healthy and nourished, it possitively impacts your health. It is able to strenghten your immune sistem, improve your mood, and help you lose weight.
