La Tierra® Organic Premium Black Chia Seed (1lb) La Tierra®有機頂級黑奇亞籽(1磅)


Chia Seed, also known as Salvia Hispanica, is a superfood native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and it was used as a very important energy food in pre-columbian times.

Chia seeds are now used for their nutritional and medicinal properties, endurance for athletes, for suppressing the appetite, weight loss, levelling blood sugar, and for aiding intestinal regularity.

Combat Diabetes
Chia is being studied as a potential natural treatment for type-2 diabetes because of its ability to slow down digestion. The gelatinous coating chia seeds develops when exposed to liquids-can also prevent blood sugar spikes.

Improve Heart Health
Chia seed improves blood pressure in diabetics, and may also increase healthy cholesterol while lowering total, LDL, and triglyceride cholesterol.

Weight Loss
Chia seeds are an appetite suppressant. Bulking up a meal with chia gel helps lessen the amount of food consumed as chia seed can absorb more than 12 times its weigh in water. Chia seeds can prolong hydration, helping retain moisture and regulate more efficiently the body’s absorption of nutrients, including electrolyte balance. It also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps regulate appetite, sleep and improve mood.

Get More Fibre
Just a 28g or one-ounce serving of chia has 11g of dietary fibre - about a third of the recommended daily intake for adults. Adding some chia to your diet is an easy way to make sure sufficient intake of fibre, which is important for digestive health.

Rich in Omega-3
Chia seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, with nearly 5g in a serving. These fats are important for brain health. There's better conversion of omega 3s into the plasma or into the food than with flax seed.

Pack In The Protein
Chia seeds also make a great source of protein for vegetarians and don't have any cholesterol. One serving has 4.4g of protein, nearly 10% of the daily value.

Stronger Teeth And Bones
A serving of chia seeds has 18% of the daily intake for calcium, 30% of manganese and 27% of phosphorus. All are essential minerals to maintain bone and oral health, and prevent osteoporosis. Manganese helps your body use other essential nutrients like biotin and thiamin, while phosphorus is used by the body to synthesise protein for cell and tissue growth and repair.

追擊糖尿病
奇亞籽正被研究成為第二類糖尿病的天然治療法,因為它能減慢消化。奇亞籽被泡於液體時產生的明膠層也能防止血糖飆升。

促進心臟健康
奇亞籽能改善糖尿病中的血壓,亦能提高健康膽固醇,同時降低總膽固醇、低密度脂蛋白膽固醇和甘油三酸酯,有助促進心臟健康。

減肥救星
奇亞籽能抑制食慾,而奇亞籽啫喱亦可代替食譜中的某些食品。由於奇亞籽能吸收比其重量中12倍的水,在膳食中加入奇亞籽能減少進食的食物分量。奇亞籽能延長水合作用,幫助保存水分,更有效調控身體吸收養分,平衡電解質。色氨酸,必須從食物中攝取的氨基酸,亦能從奇亞籽中找到,能調控食慾,睡眠和改善心情。

增加吸收纖維
一份奇亞籽(28克)已經含有11克的食用纖維,即大概是成年人每日建議攝取量的三分之一。在您的膳食中加入奇亞籽是最簡單的方法去確保您已攝取足夠的纖維,對腸道健康尤為重要。

含豐富奧米加3
奇亞籽含豐富的奧米加3,每份近乎5克,對腦部健康十分重要。研究發現,奇亞籽中的奧米加3轉化入腦漿的轉化率比亞麻籽為高。

含高蛋白質
對於素食者來說,奇亞籽是一個很棒的蛋白質來源,而且不含任何膽固醇。一份奇亞籽含 4.4克蛋白質,近乎每日建議攝取量10%。

強壯牙齒和骨骼
以每日建議攝取量計算,一份奇亞籽含 18% 鈣質,30% 和 27% ,這三種礦物質對保持骨骼和口腔健康和防止骨質疏鬆症尤為重要。錳能幫助身體運用其他必要營養,如生物素和硫胺素维生素B1,而磷則與蛋白質產生互為作用,促進細胞和組織生長及修補。
