The Swee2ooth Difference: Type 2 Diabetes and Plant Based Power of Chia Seed


Swee2ooth Science: The plant-based power of CHIA SEED

Protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids should be mainstays in every Type 2 diabetic's diet. These nutrients pack a big punch in terms of weight management, helping control blood sugar levels, and improving insulin sensitivity. And yet, this big punch is present in one tiny little package…

The chia seed: Small in stature, but a major component of Swee2ooth’s “Fiber and Omega Fat Blend.”


A Superfood with Super Benefits

Why should you as a Type 2 or Pre Type 2 be eating chia seeds? The better question is, Why would you not?

The fiber and omega-3s in chia will both help keep your blood sugar and insulin levels in check – this is supported by various scientific research.

The protein content in chia seeds, along with the fiber, may help with weight loss, as research shows that high protein diets are good for controlling appetite and reducing food cravings. In fact, Medical News Today listed chia seeds as one of the Top 15 Sources of Plant-Based Protein.

Chia seeds are also a rich source of antioxidants that promote overall health and fight off disease in the body.


How to Eat Chia Seed

The easiest way to infuse chia seeds into your diet is by having Swee2ooth shakes and snacks on a regular basis. In addition to chia seed, Swee2ooth’s Fiber and Omega Fat Blend also delivers organic flaxseed and glucomannan (aka, konjac root) for added health-promoting benefits.

Chia seeds can also be purchased by the bag and sprinkled onto salads, in yogurt, in oatmeal, or in other common foods.

Great nutrients often come in small packages. Exhibit A: chia seeds!
