"One of the reasons that Chia seeds increase physical endurance declares, James E. Scheer, author of TheMagic of Chia, is that although easily digested, it absorbs more than seven times its weight in water and due to the gel it forms, there is a slow release of carbohydrates and a similarly slow conversion of the carbohydrates into glucose and therefore energy. The outer layer of the Chia seeds is rich in soluble fiber mucilloid. The seeds, when mixed with water or juice, form a gel in the stomach that creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and digestive enzymes. Carbohydrates are digested evenly and slowly. There is therefore no increase or sudden raise of insulin levels in the blood after eating Chia. " James E. Scheer, "The Magic of Chia".
