In brief: Haven't seen that

Reported. Possible side effects from chia include ^ gas (flatus), bloating ; constipation (w inadequate hydration).
Because of omega 3 fatty acids, use of Aspirin or blood thinners could be problematic. People w bleeding disorders or who may be undergoing surgery should d/w their providers. 1 study showed diastolic blood pressure can drop w chia. People w mustard seed allergies are also likely to.

to be allergic to Chia seeds. At this time the general recommendation is that Chia seeds not be consumed during pregnancy or lactation (due to lack of research)
