Chia seeds: The word â€œchiaâ€ translates to the Mayan word for â€œstrengthâ€ since it was used by warriors to gain more stamina and strength.
Chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, chia seeds contain more Omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram. Scientists examined the safety, active ingredients, and health benefits of chia.
High levels of phenolic acid were found â€“ 60 percent contained omega Ï‰-3 alpha-linolenic acid, and 20 percent omega Ï‰-6, presenting the potential to prevent diabetes, obesity, and heart problems, and help subjects maintain healthy serum lipid (blood sugar) levels. Omega-3 and omega-6 oils are required for optimum health and canâ€™t be produced within the body; it must come from an outside source. Further, hens fed chia seed meal produced eggs with the highest Ï‰-3 ALA content compared with hens fed flaxseed or rapeseed.
