“When you're feeling backed-up, this high-fiber chia concoction can help make your bathroom routine smoother. The chia seeds form a gel-like consistency to help move digestion along easily, and the kick of cayenne pepper acts as an intestinal stimulant.”

Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • Pinch of cayenne pepper
    • 1 cup water

Directions

  • 1 Combine chia seeds, lemon juice and cayenne in a mug or glass; add water. Stir continuously until the chia seeds gel and become suspended throughout the water, 30 seconds or more.
