Organic chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are raw materials grown without chemical preparations and artificial fertilizers on surfaces with no air pollutants.
Chia seeds owe their well-deserved popularity to the numerous nutrients in their composition and their effects on the human body and organisms.
These black, white, and dark brown seeds are known today as a superfood and are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and minerals such as magnesium, zinc, iron, and calcium. Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids, especially alpha-linoleic acid. They can be entered only through food, and consuming them can help prevent cardiovascular diseases. When we talk about fiber, just two tablespoons of this seed contain twice as much fiber as one apple, and we know that fiber-rich foods promote intestinal health by stimulating their work. It is also an excellent choice for all people training or trying to reduce their intake of sweets because, with 0 grams of sugar and almost 20 grams of protein, it is an ideal combination for weight loss and a more prolonged feeling of satiety. Among powerful antioxidants, we single out chlorogenic and caffeic acid, which help reduce blood pressure and inflammatory processes.
