I'm in the early Stop-Smoking phase and after taking 2 tablespoons last night before bed I had the best sleep I've experienced in days. It also seems to help my uncontrollable desire for food since I stopped smoking.

I use Nutiva brand and I love them. I take 2 tlbs a day of the black milled seeds. I feel more alert, more energized and I am friendlier. Overall I feel better and my mind seems clearer. I tried this because someone shared some with me. I am so glad I did. I'm 41 years old and my family members have noticed a difference in me.

Do not take this if you are on a high blood pressure reduction medication regime...I was sick (flu like and faint) for a week before I realized the connection...I stopped taking the chia powder and all of these negative symptoms have gone away...
