Chia Seeds for Omega 3s, Fiber and Protein

I recently tried some Kombucha drinks with chia seeds suspended in them, and decided to buy a pound bag of whole chia seeds (Bob's Red Mill) from my local vitamin store.

A one tablespoon serving contains Omega3 2282mg, Omega6 752mg, Fiber 5g and Protein 3g. So far I've just used them to sprinkle on my morning plain greek yogurt with lemon and honey.

The only side effect I'm aware of, is that they can lower blood pressure, so those with low blood pressure or on antihypertensive medications should not eat chia seeds.

Interesting, I just might try those. I'm a vegetarian and am always looking for a way to get some extra omega-3s in my diet. You think GNC would likely have these chia seeds?
