Chia, which is also called Salvia hispanica, is a plant native to Mexico and Guatemala. It has seeds which are known for their exceptional nutritional value and beneficial effects on the whole body as well as their nice nutty flavour. They contain, among others, α-linolenic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, and have a lot of antioxidant compounds.
Chia seeds are an excellent source of α-linolenic acid which is a precursor of other omega−3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids build cell membranes, help to maintain the proper cholesterol level, support the treatment of hypertension and have anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Chia seeds are high in antioxidants which benefit our health. They also contain: chlorogenic acid which enhances insulin sensitivity, caffeic acid, and quercetin, kaempferol and myricetin which have anticancer properties. Additionally, quercetin can reduce unpleasant allergy symptoms. Chia seeds are also rich in calcium, so they are its excellent source for people who follow a lactose-free diet. Thanks to a high content of soluble fibre, chia seeds support the proper functioning of the digestive system.
Keep in a cool and dry place.
