Chia seeds have innumerable benefits for pregnant women. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals that are vital for the overall health of pregnant women and their growing babies. Pregnancy can take a toll on your body as it uses up a lot of nutrients. It is, therefore, important for you to have foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Chia seeds contain highly essential minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc, iron and niacin. They are also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for the brain development of the baby. Hence, they can be a wonderful addition to your daily snacks and meals.
