- Chia Seeds
Promotes Cardiovascular Health:
According to the American Heart Association, Omega-3 fatty acids can normalize blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, while helping promote healthy heart and blood vessels.
Assists Joint Function & Mobility:
With six times more calcium than milk, and with greater amounts of high-quality protein than found in soy, Chia also helps strengthen muscles and bones.
Improves Digestion & Natural Detoxification:
Chia can absorb a whopping 12+ times its weight in water – flax seed only absorbs 6-8 times its weight. Chia’s insoluble fiber reduces digestive transit time and removes toxins as it passes through the digestive tract.
Supports Healthy Weight Loss:
Chia´s high fiber content and its ability to reduce blood sugar levels after meals inhibits the appetite, thus making it the perfect food for healthy, effective weight loss. Thanks to its neutral flavor and color, Chia integrates seamlessly into any healthy recipe.
Antioxidants in Chia seeds and oil help prevent cancer:
The most important antioxidants contained in Chia seeds are chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, coumaric acid and caffeic acid in Chia oil; these are antioxidants that play a major role in cancer prevention.
Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) reduces fatal cardiac episodes:
The effects of Omega-3 on MI (MI as in myocardial infarction, aka "heart attack") survivors were investigated by supplementing the diet with daily doses of fish oil (1.08 g EPA, 0.72 g DHA), mustard oil (2.7 g / day, ALA), and a placebo. After one year, both the fish oil group and the mustard oil group showed a decrease in cardiac episodes, non-fatal infarcts, arrhythmias and chest pains, compared to the placebo group.
