Doctor

A:   Hello
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.

Chia seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and does help in losing weight in certain cases but not in all. As its a herbal preparation, proper scientific studies have not been done to assess its efficacy. However you may give it a try for 1-2 months to assess its efficacy.

Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
