      Flaxseed is a wonderful fiber, especially for women as it is purported
      to reduce bad estrogen levels. Chia seed is another great form of
      fiber -- besides the fiber benefits, it is extremely high in Omega 3s
      and calcium. Don't know if Chia seed is available in Costa Rica, but
      flax seed is ubiquitous. I buy chia seeds on the net for about $7.00 a
      pound. I put them in baked goods and also add them to my dogs'
      dinner. Great stuff (but I'm quite sure the AMA and Big Pharma will
      say it's all bunk!)
