Chia seedsChia seeds contain tryptophan, an amino acid that triggers the release of serotonin in the brain and promotes good mood & good sleep. Being a source of magnesium, they also promote relaxation and support stress levels! Chia seeds also contain good amounts of omega-3 fatty acids providing anti-inflammatory benefits that have a strong relationship with cognitive function and mental wellbeing.Chia Seeds
