In brief: Caution, check w/ MD

Warfarin (coumadin (warfarin)) is an oral anticoagulant that interferes with Vitamin K associated synthesis of coagulation proteins in the liver. Chia is grown commercially for its seed, a food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and does not have vitamin K to interfere with coumadin (warfarin).
However, there are case reports of increased bleeding risk in patients using an anticoagulant if also consumed with chia.
