Chia’s health benefits are many, due to its rich nutritional profile. The Omega-3 fatty acid in Chia is ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which is helpful in prevention and management of obesity related parameters like hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia and hypertension. Vitamin E and ALA help in healthy skin and hair.
Chia seeds contain about 30-40% dietary fibre, both soluble and insoluble fibre. Studies have shown that the consumption of Chia seeds lowers LDL cholesterol, and slows digestion, resulting in a slow increase in blood sugar levels. The high fibre content is useful for proper functioning of the intestine. Also, fibre in Chia has a laxative effect, induces satiety and prevents obesity. In some studies, there have been inferences to chia for weight loss as well.
Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants like chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid in large quantities. They also contain myricetin, quercetin, kaempferol and flavonols in small amounts. Antioxidants protect cells from oxidative damage of free radicals, and are believed to have anti-carcinogenic, antihypertensive and neuron protective effects.SKU: n/a
