SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 02, 2018 / 24-7PressRelease / – Chia seeds are a very healthy but tasty consideration for inclusion in your diet. The health benefits they offer are in the important minerals and nutrients they contain. These nutrients have been scientifically researched for many years and are known to cause a considerable number of health benefits. In fact, the components of chia seeds are so effective in improving a person's health that they are the main ingredients in some natural supplements and remedies. Because these nutrients have been scientifically proven, these supplements are proven effective. Analyzing This is an informative website about natural supplements and the ingredients they contain. We look at the science behind the ingredients. View it if you are interested in natural supplements and remedies.
Natural supplements are based on the principle that the state of health is reduced by keeping the right amounts of nutrients in the body. The same can be said about eating healthy foods such as chia seeds. Chia seeds can only be eaten as a snack or as a topping with every meal, so it's easy to get their health benefits.
The anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants
Chia seeds contain large amounts of a healthy fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is a form of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are part of each of the membranes of the cell in the body. When metabolized, particularly when cells are stressed, they reduce inflammation by slowing the metabolism of another fatty acid called arachidonic acid. The metabolism of arachidonic acid produces a group of substances called prostaglandins that cause inflammation and pain.
Another group of chemicals that cause inflammation are free radicals. Free radicals are also produced when cells are stressed. They also react with cell membranes and cause isoprostanes, which have the same effect as prostaglandins. Antioxidants react with free radicals, so they do not react with the cell membrane and therefore prevent the inflammatory process.
Inflammation is healthy in very short periods, such as during an infection, but when it happens very often, as in the case of our current stressful lifestyle, it causes damage. Prolonged inflammation can play a role in various chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and cancer.
Free radicals also react with proteins and DNA in the cells, which can lead to a reduction of chemical reactions or a massive accumulation of mutations. This can cause a whole range of other health problems, but it mainly increases the risk of developing cancer.
Chia seeds contain many minerals
Chia seeds contain a lot of magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. They also contain moderate amounts of zinc, potassium and some B vitamins. Minerals play an important role in helping certain reactive proteins in the body to perform a function. For example, manganese helps certain enzymes to produce glucose in the body when it is low. Zinc helps the blood to clot when one of your blood vessels is damaged by binding it to a reactive protein called the platelet-activating factor receptor (PAFR).
There are also some necessary functions that perform minerals without working with proteins. For example, potassium is vital for sending electrical signals through nerves and muscles. A shortage makes it much more difficult for nerves to send out signals and to pull muscles together. It can also cause the heart muscle to contract prematurely and cause an arrhythmia.
Only one gram of chia seeds contains about 30% of the recommended daily amount of these minerals.
Chia seeds contain a lot of fiber
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that is not actually absorbed in the intestine. Instead, it provides a bulking mass to which all other waste products can stick and be moved along the bowel to be removed. Without the right amount of fiber, people can develop constipation. Fiber also helps to slow the absorption of nutrients so that they are released into the blood more slowly and produce a slower release of energy, compared to a sudden peak. It also helps to give the feeling of fullness when eating large amounts and because it is not absorbed, it does not significantly contribute to weight gain. Actually the weight loss can help because people eat less.
