Purella Chia Seeds BIO (50g)
Slightly nutty chia seeds come from South America. Chia is a source of protein that helps maintain muscle mass and healthy bones. They also contain huge amounts of fiber, with a very little salt and very little sugar. Although chia seeds are just tiny black seeds, they contain many valuable ingredients. They include, among others saturated fatty acids omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. In the past, chia seeds from the Salvia hispanica plant were a valuable food for the Aztecs and Mayans. The word "chia" in the Mayan language meant "strength." Country of origin: Peru.
- Tiny chia seeds resembling poppy seeds are a source of valuable protein containing essential amino acids. Protein constitutes about 14% of their total mass (comparable to the same as in most plants). Thanks to the content of protein and fiber, chia seeds reduce appetite, stop hunger pangs and snacking, and help in losing unnecessary kilograms (while maintaining a balanced diet).
- Like linseed, chia seeds contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. They even have more than salmon. Omega 3 is present in chia seeds in the form of ALA acids - a form that in the human body must be converted into EPA and DHA (which, unfortunately, the body cannot do). Although chia seeds are not treated as such a good source of omega-3 fatty acids as fish and fish oil (they lack DHA and EPA acids), they can increase the concentration of ALA and EPA acids in the body, also important for the body.
- Chia seeds are a great alternative to dairy products. One 28-gram serving covers 18% of the daily calcium requirement. Chia supplements vegetarian and vegan diets with this element important for bone health. According to research, chia seeds can lower sugar levels after eating a high-carbohydrate meal, which may be beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes. Chia seeds can increase insulin sensitivity and stabilize blood sugar levels after a meal.
