Both chia seeds and flax seeds top the list of superfoods. They are both easy to add to your salads or smoothies for a nutritional punch.
I adore both of them and add them to my smoothies, salads, salad dressings, make puddings out of them – you name it!
But is one better than the other? Let’s compare.
|Chia Seeds/2 Tbsp.||Flax Seeds/2 Tbsp|
|Omega 3 (EFA)||5,000mg||2,700mg|
|Taste||Faintly nutty/ Earthy||Whole grain/Nutty|
|Storage||Keep for 2 years||Spoil quickly|
|Versatility||Don’t need to grind||Must grind (unless using a high speed blender)|
Both have more antioxidants than blueberries!

Depending on what source you check out, either could win out.
If you had to choose based on the above comparison, it looks like chia seeds win out, but not by a landslide.
Each have their own nutritional benefits and are an easy addition to your healthy diet where variety is key.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
