This Underrated Superfood Has Skin-Boosting Benefit

Seeds are undervalued superfoods. Many seeds, such as flax, pumpkin, hemp, buckwheat, sesame, and aramanth, are healthy, but chia seeds should be your first choice.  

They provide skin advantages, calcium, iron, and omega 3 benefits, hence nutritionists recommend them.  

 In Central America, the Aztecs relied on chia seeds from the mint family's salvia hispanica desert shrub.  

 Medical nutritionist María José Crispín emphasizes the benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids, such omega 3 and linoleic acid, in reducing cardiovascular disease.  

 Chia seeds contain cholesterol-lowering phytosterols .

 The primary phytosterol in chia seeds is beta sitosterol, which reduces cardiovascular risk, according to Crispín.  

 According to Crispín, chia seeds are high in fiber, which can lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.  

 According to the dietitian, polyphenols are “antioxidants that prevent free radicals that are produced in our body and help reduce inflammation, but also delay ageing and the risks of cancer”.  

 The sprouts can be eaten instead of the seeds. Add chia sprouts to salads or sandwiches.
