Chia Seeds Natural High-ORAC Antioxidants and Rich in Omega-3!
Chia was cultivated by the ancient Aztecs, and was honored as a “power food”. Chia is one of the best plant sources of beneficial Omega-3 oils, especially a-linolenic acid (ALA). Scientific Research on Omega-3 and other essential fatty acids (EFA) continues to prove that EFA’s support cardiovascular health, comfortable joint mobility, immune system function and overall cellular energy. Chia is often stored for long periods of time as a Survival Food, since it does not quickly turn rancid like other sources of Essential Fatty Acids. Chia is high in vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium and phosphorous. It contains many antioxidants, including significant levels of caffeic acids, quercetin and flavonols.
Chia is an excellent source of high molecular weight soluble fiber, which supports healthy bowel function. When Chia is mixed into a liquid, it forms a gelatinous mass due to its high content of beneficial mucilages. This slows the digestion of carbohydrates in the digestive system, leading to a feeling of fullness and reduces the spike in blood sugar that often accompanies the ingestion of carbohydrates.
