The secret to discovering the benefits of chia seeds may be grinding them.
When recently Review The literature on the health-promoting properties and therapeutic applications of chia seeds, a lot of studies have been conducted Discussfor example, “chia incorporation strategies (Spanish sage L.) in frankfurters as a health-promoting ingredient.” After all, “recent years have seen an increase in the pursuit of healthier lifestyles, among which are dietary habits. In response, there has been a great deal of interest worldwide in … compounds originally found in plants to provide health benefits in foods. Yes, but in hot dogs? And indeed, “sausages reconstituted with chia contain significantly greater amounts of [plant] insoluble protein and dietary fiber, [and] Minerals…. Given this nutritional profile, products produced in this way could qualify to be labeled with a variety of nutritional and health claims. And what do you know? “Restructured Pork Enriched with Chia Oil” does that already effect Old rats fed poor diets. So…let’s tag those health claims!
It was chia eaten for thousands of years, suggesting It’s at least safe to consume, but it does Show Any special advantages? It is definitely nutritious. Chia seeds contain a lot of fiber, antioxidants (black chia seeds may be more than white), vegetable protein and also it contains Lots of B vitamins and minerals. So, yes, it’s nutritious – like almost any whole plant food. But, again: do they have any special benefits? The people trying to sell you chia seeds are making all kinds of claims, but “definitively construction Their actual beneficial effects,” we need a little something called “scientific evidence rather than cultural traditions, personal beliefs, or even inaccurate declarations,” a redundant term if you’ve ever heard it.
For example, if you look at YouTube, you will find more than 50,000 videos about chia seeds and belly fat, but what does the science say? Apparently, nutritional chia seeds do just that scale down Belly fat…in mice. them too scale down Weight… chicken. Obviously, “consumers are reluctant to eat poultry products that smell or taste like fish,” so by feeding chickens chia seeds, you can boost your omega-3 levels without turning the meat into funky chicken. What happens if you just cut a sandwich and eat the chia yourself? I discuss this in my video Do chia seeds help get rid of belly fat?.
What happens, for example, if you add a teaspoon or two of chia seeds to yogurt as a snack? after, after Eating food Yogurt with chia “participants mentioned Significantly lower scores for hunger” and ended up eating fewer calories at lunch two hours later. My initial thought was, well, duh – if you give people more food by adding chia to whatever they eat, they will definitely be less hungry. But, as you can see in 2:44 in my country videoresearchers gave People reduced their yogurt intake to make up for the addition of chia, so each snack contains the same number of calories. What happened at lunch two hours later? Study participants did eat slightly less food; They ate about 25 percent fewer calories after eating chia. One teaspoon of chia seeds contains only about 50 calories, and I ended up eating nearly 300 fewer calories at lunch, and that more than makes up for it. We can at least say that chia seeds are more satiating than yogurt. So, if you eat a few chia seeds daily as a snack – one teaspoon seems to work plus two – you’ll expect to lose weight over time. You don’t know, though, until… you test it. The topics were random to one full tablespoon of chia seeds twice daily before the first and last meal for 12 weeks, the researchers have found which – which”[c]Haya seeds don’t promote weight loss” after all. That’s frustrating.
Well, we know from the flaxseed literature that if you give people muffins made with whole flaxseeds, they really don’t seem to suck All benefits compared a land Flaxseed muffins. The same seems to be true of chia seeds. As you can see at 3:57 in my country videoIf you are Eat Whole chia seeds for ten weeks, no increase in levels of short-chain omega-3 or long-chain omega-3. But, if you eat the same amount of ground chia seeds, the levels shoot above. So, perhaps the problem with that study is that the researchers gave People Whole Chia Seeds. What we really need is a study on chia grounds and weight loss, and researchers have given us exactly that.
In a randomized controlled trial, one group was Given About two tablespoons of ground chia a day, and another group got a matching fiber control made mostly from oat bran. This is how you know it wasn’t funded by the chia seed company: The researchers pitted chia head-on against a real control to match the fiber content rather than putting it against a sugar pill. That way, if there was weight loss, we’d know that it wasn’t just because of the fiber, but because of something special with chia. And indeed, as you can see at 4:42 in my country videothose who eat earth chia Lost Significantly greater weight and significantly greater waist circumference, a measure of abdominal fat, and as a bonus, there was a decrease in C-reactive protein levels, suggesting an anti-inflammatory effect as well. Therefore, some of YouTube’s 50,000 videos may not have been completely shut down.
There is one form of chia powder that I should stay away from. In a previous video, Which is better: chia seeds or flax seeds?I talked about using shea gel Replace Eggs or oil in bread, by mixing a teaspoon of chia seeds with a quarter cup of water and leaving it for half an hour. It is definitely a way to lower cholesterol and it seems that skipping eggs will lower your cholesterol salmonella Danger, but there has been an international outbreak of salmonella linked to sprout chia seed powder that infected 94 people in 16 US states and 4 Canadian provinces. A plant can “create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow”. Granted, it’s not as bad as salmonella– Contaminated eggs that may be getting sick 79,000 Americans each year, but I still recommend staying away from sprout Chia seed powder.
