How often to use

In general there are no restrictions on how much Chia you can consume each day but it is unnecessary to consume more than 50 g or three tablespoons of seeds daily. The amount of seeds you need to consume will vary based whether you are hoping to increase your intake of fiber, calcium or omega-3s.

For example, those that consume 30 g or two tablespoons of Chia seeds will fulfill their daily requirement of omega-3s. Confirm the following dosages with your doctor and do not stray from the agreed dosage.

  • Adults may consume two tablespoons or 15 grams of Chia seeds per day.
  • Those between the ages of 5-18 may consume 1.4-4.3 grams of Chia seeds each day.
  • Children under 10 should not consume more than a tablespoon of Chia seeds.
  • Those using Chia seeds for cardiovascular shielding may take 33-41g of blended seeds daily for three months.
