Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants (phenolic compounds). Antioxidants are substances found in foods, which inhibit (“anti-”) a process called oxidation (‘-oxidant”) in the body’s cells. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that produces free radicals. Free radicals cause the destruction of our body’s cells, and antioxidants stop them. Studies have shown antioxidants reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Chia seeds are an excellent source of healthy polyunsaturated fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, which are not made by the body and must be obtained from foods.
