Here are some of their major health benefits…
● They improve serum cholesterol and heart health
Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and α-linolenic acid, as well as fiber, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and other nutrients. Essential fatty acids increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels, while lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides. The natural antioxidants of chia, give them a huge advantage over all other sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Also, improving serum cholesterol helps with heart health, as bad cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease.
Chia seeds are also rich in soluble and insoluble fiber. The former have been shown to help lower cholesterol. When mixed with water, the soluble fibers in chia seeds form a type of jelly, which can be used as a thickener in cooking and as an alternative to baking oil. Use it in combination with oil, butter or margarine to reduce harmful fat levels in the diet and increase fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
● They boost energy levels
The Aztecs ate chia seeds and called them "running food" because they provide energy and also have hydrophilic properties that help regulate electrolytes. The complex carbohydrates in chia seeds break down slowly, maintaining energy levels to improve strength and endurance. Omega-3 fatty acids also boost mental energy and mood.
● They improve the symptoms of diabetes
The glycemic index of chia seeds is very low and so the blood sugar levels do not reach the heights, as with the processed carbohydrates. In addition, because blood sugar levels remain more stable, the craving for high-sugar foods decreases. The protein, fiber and complex carbohydrates in chia seeds, slow down digestion and regulate blood sugar levels, resulting in a feeling of fullness for a longer period of time.
● They help in weight loss
Chia seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber absorbs water and expands to form a type of jelly, which creates a feeling of fullness and thus helps us consume fewer calories. Fiber and protein slow down digestion so hunger is not activated as quickly as sugars, starch and other simple carbohydrates. Insoluble fiber, which is not digested, helps prevent constipation and digestive disorders.
● They reduce inflammation
The high levels of essential fatty acids contained in chia seeds, have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to absorb fat-soluble vitamins and reduce the c-reactive protein, an indicator of inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce stiffness and pain. Studies have shown that reduced inflammation reduces the risk of heart disease, arthritis and certain types of cancer.
Store: In a dark and cool (5oC - 15oC) place
Chia seeds can be eaten raw, roasted, ground or mixed with water. It is also an ideal product for the enrichment of various food products such as baby food, cookies, yogurt, sauces, etc. Chia jelly can be mixed with lemon and a sweetener to make "chia fresca", a popular drink in Mexico.
