Chia Seeds and Free Radicals

Posted on: November 20th, 2012 by admin

Lately, anti-oxidants have been in the news, due to their amazing health benefits. Anti-oxidants help prevent free-radical damage in your body, which can cause problematic conditions such as premature aging and inflammation. Free radicals are introduced to the body from the environment, such as exposure to pollution and other toxins. They react with other molecules in the body, because they consist of unpaired electrons. Because of their reactive nature, free radicals cause damage to cells in the body by reacting with the molecules in cell membranes. Antioxidants neutralize the electric charge of the free radicals and keep your body healthy.

Chia seeds are abundant in anti-oxidants, which is why they stay fresh for so long. Without any chemicals or preservatives, chia seeds will stay fresh and ready to eat for over two years, at room temperature. Chia seeds far surpass known anti-oxidant powerhouses, like blueberries, pomegranates, wine and tea. Stock up, today, with AZChia’s high-quality chia seeds.
