Side Effects of Chia seeds

Chia seed is a superfood that originate in Mexico. It is good for lowering cholesterol and for diabetic patients. It contains omega3 fatty acid which is great for skin, hair and nails.

Chia seeds are good for our body but there are few side effects .

-Chia can cause gas and intestinal bloating

- Chia seeds can lower blood pressure but you need to be careful if you are from upper age group. Because chia can lower the pressure of blood to the dangerous level.
