Chia Seeds - Light Headed Question
I took chia seeds (in gel - mixed into my breakfast tuna mix)and am feeling a bit light headed. Is this normal for first use?
Thank you for asking. I haven't heard anyone becoming light headed after eating chia, but... everyone is different. I have become light headed at various times but not with chia.
The cells of the body take in nutrients and release waste. The cells of the brain do the same thing when given nutrients it can specifically use.
If you are on medication or under a doctor's care, you might consult with your doctor on that.
When I begin a eating a new food, I usually begin with very small amounts to let the body work through any adjustments. Then I increase a little after a few days if my body seems to be dealing with the new food okay.
Here's an article I have on my website that will provide you with more information about phytonutrients and antioxidants which chia seeds contain.
Good luck on understanding more about chia. It's quite an adventure since there are so many things you can do with it.
