We all need a little extra help when it comes to losing weight. Our Weight Loss Blend includes a combination of seeds that contain beneficial nutrients that will help you lose weight. Our Weight Loss Blend includes Chia, Hemp, Flax and Sunflower seeds.
Chia Seeds: Chia seeds come from a plant that is a cousin to mint and sage. The seeds are a rich source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber, and a variety of important vitamins and minerals. Chia seeds rapidly absorb water, so they bulk up when exposed to liquids. This trait makes them an excellent appetite suppressant. Because chia seeds are a food, they are safe to consume even in large quantities. Their nutritional properties make them an effective weight loss aid.
Hemp Seeds: Kym Douglas, in the book “The Black Book of Hollywood Pregnancy Secrets,” notes that hemp seeds are one of the superfoods that are a great weight-loss helper. This may be in part due to hemp seeds being high in omega-3 EFAs, which, according to Margaret Furtado in “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Well After Weight Loss Surgery,” has been shown in studies to increase satiety in those who are overweight or are trying to cut down on calories. Furtado adds that omega-3s have been shown to have anti-obesity effects. Foods high in omega-3s, such as hemp seeds, have other benefits beyond weight loss through satiety. Omega-3s are linked to regulating mood, sleep, reactions to stress and hormonal actions, according to Furtado. They are also anti-inflammatory. Balancing these systems in the body may be helpful in stimulating weight loss.
Flax Seeds: According to the USDA, two tablespoons of flax seeds have about 60 calories, 3 g protein, 4.5 g fat, 4 g carbohydrates and 4 g dietary fiber. Those relatively high amounts of protein and dietary fiber make flax seeds healthy to include in a weight loss diet because they may be more likely to fill you up and keep you full for longer than other foods.
Sunflower Seeds: Sunflower seeds are rich in fiber considering the low carbohydrate content, as each 1 oz. serving provides 3 g of fiber. Fiber is a nutrient that can help manage your blood sugar levels and increase feelings of fullness, so consuming fiber-rich foods such as sunflower seeds can help keep your appetite under control. Sunflower seeds’ fiber and dietary fat content make them good choices to satisfy appetite.
