How it Works?
Helps you meet your fiber quota
Just 1 tablespoon (13 grams or 0.5 ounces) of basil seeds supplies 7 grams of fiber — 25% of the RDI. Only about 5% of Americans eat enough fiber.
May support gut health
Studies suggest that pectin has prebiotic benefits, meaning it may nourish and increase beneficial gut bacteria. This may include anti-inflammatory bacteria that support gut health.
May help you feel full
It may delay stomach emptying and increase hormone levels that promote a sense of fullness. Still, it’s uncertain whether eating it to curb appetite is an effective weight loss strategy.
May aid blood sugar control
When people with type 2 diabetes ate 10 grams (3/4 tablespoon) of this product in water after each meal for a month, their post-meal blood sugar was 17% lower than at the start of the study.
May improve cholesterol
It may lower blood cholesterol by inhibiting cholesterol absorption in your gut. People who ate 30 grams (7 teaspoons) of these seeds daily for one month had an 8% drop in total cholesterol.
Great Alternative to Chia Seeds
Basil seeds and chia seeds both form a gel when soaked and are nutritionally similar. However, chia seeds contain twice as much omega-3 fat but a little less fiber than basil seeds.
