Where can we find Omega-3 from Plant Foods?

As we had explored in the earlier post, omega-3 is best obtained from wholesome plant foods. Less known are the sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is what we will be looking at.

CHIA SEEDS!

Contains calcium, phosphorus, manganese, fibre and protein. Also contains antioxidants in the form of flavonol glycosides, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, kaempferol, quertin and myricetin -- to fight free radicals and keep our cells young!

A VERY POWERFUL DOSE OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

Just one serving of chia seeds contains 4,915 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids and 1,620 mg of Omega-6 fatty acids. In the beautiful ratio of 3:1 of Omega-3 vs Omega-6 fatty acids!

HELPS WITH DIGESTION

Rich in fibre which help to cleanse and soothe the colon. Chia seed enzymes aids in digestion.

ENHANCES CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Chia seed diets can dramatically decrease triglyceride levels and increase HDL ("good") cholesterol. Regular consumption can reduce blood pressure and inflammation.

ANTI-CANCER

ALA deficiency will affect brain cell membranes which translates to impact on the nervous system. (i.e. decreased learning and memory, decreased perception of pleasure).
