By Merab Inyika July 02, 2020

chia oil

Chia seed oil is a nutrient and vitamin rich oil with a golden color and has a clean nutty flavor. It is extracted by pressing dried chia seeds. Chia seed oil can be used to nourish the whole body as it contains essential nutrients such as proteins, zinc, calcium and vitamins B, D and E. It also contains a significant amount of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.

Our bodies are unable to produce omega-3 fatty acids. It is primarily obtained from food or supplement sources. Chia oil can be used to provide the body with a significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids which reduces the negative effects of omega-6. This can therefore be used to reduce inflammation as most diets contain a high amount of omega-6. Omega-3 fatty acids also reduce the risk of degenerative issues like joint pain and heart disease. It also protects the major systems in the body like the heart and nervous system.

The significantly high amount of antioxidants and phytonutrients found in chia oil are great at protecting body cells from oxidative stress. They also help in the formation of new brain cells and reduce overall brain inflammation.

Omega-3 found in chia seed oil is essential for ensuring good heart health. Studies show that omega-3 essential fatty acids protect the heart from erratic rhythm which is a leading cause of death. Taking omega-3 fatty acids also reduces the chances of suffering a heart attack or stroke. Regular consumption of chia oil can ensure the body gets the adequate amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

Chia seed oil provides significant relief from dry eye syndrome which may slightly impair vision or lead to total blindness. Symptoms of dry eye syndrome include itchy, stingy eyes and excessive sensitivity to light. A regular dose of omega-3 in chia oil immensely improves the symptoms of dry eye syndrome.

Chia seed oil also produces great results for dry and ashy skin. It moisturizes and nourishes the skin as it is easily absorbed deep into the skin increasing skin hydration. This also improves the skin’s function to act as a barrier. Chia oil also delivers essential anti-aging nutrients to the skin leaving it looking radiant and youthful. The oil is also great for application on the hair as it conditions the scalp and accelerates hair growth. This is because it contains a significant amount of protein which is essential for hair growth.

Due to its high smoke point, chia seed oil is a great option for  cooking especially at high temperatures. However, it is important to note that using the oil at high temperatures reduces its mineral content. In order to get the most nutrients from chia oil, it is recommended to add it after steaming vegetables or to a light fry.

Chia seed oil can also be used a supplement during pregnancy and breastfeeding. This is because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids necessary for the development of postural and motor function as well as visual acuity in babies.
