I have heard the pros and cons of Chia seeds. They are highly recommended in the book, Born to Run, and then the Huffington Post said this about them: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christina-pirello/change-your-life-with-chi_b_446413.html
What I've heard on Rob Wolff's podcast, Paleolithic Solutions, is that although they are high in omega 3's, they are short chain vs the long chain you'd find in fish oil and so he dismisses them to the amount of hype they seem to be getting all over. (Even my grocery store has a display for them in the organic area).
Who's used them, have you noticed the wonder benefits they mention or is this simply another fad?
