PROPERTIES OF CHIA OIL

Chia is the plant species with the highest concentration of fatty acid alpha-linolenic omega-3 known, which is an essential fatty acid that our metabolism is unable to produce and therefore must contribute them exogenously (diet or supplements rich in them). Omega3 reduce the tendency to thrombus formation because they increase the clotting time; decrease platelet aggregation, blood viscosity and fibrinogen and increased erythrocyte deformability. These fatty acids play a key role in improving cardiovascular disease and inflammatory phenomena such as rheumatoid arthritis, and decreased in various chronic pathologies, such as asthma. Also become essential during pregnancy as they are necessary for the development of the retina and brain of the

baby. Has also been proven beneficial effects in reducing the size of tumors, such as breast or colon. It is also recommended to drink herbal tea, juices, smoothies or yogurt drink with added chia, turning this beverages in healthy and invigorating drinks. Chia oil is obtained by cold extraction by pressing chia seeds. In this procedure is extracted from the seed of the 80% lipid, with the remainder as flour or bran chia. For its pleasant aroma and smooth taste is ideal for enriching a variety of meals. It is recommended to consume directly and dressing in salads, alone or in combination with other oils, vinegar, balsamic vinegar or lemon juice. I also added in sauces for hot or cold preparations, or to enrich and seasoning cooked as noodles and rice dishes.
