Chia seeds are densely packed with Omega-3, an essential nutrient that the human body doesn’t produce on its own. 3oz (85 grams) of these little powerhouses contain the same amount of Omega-3 as a 9oz (255 grams) salmon.

Omega-3 is a fatty acid that regulates a wide-range of everyday bodily functions and also serves as a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory agent to reduce muscle damage after those long hard runs and in turn promotes efficient healing, and we all know that our running only improve when we can recover effectively. Eat chia before, during or after your runs to ensure sufficient Omega-3 intake.
