Ecológicos Ahimsa

The chia, also known as Salvia hispanica, is one of the plant species that has the greatest variety of nutrients that contribute to increasing our well-being. As a nutritional supplement, the seeds are used and can be considered “holy hand” because they make us feel better.

Chia seeds are all the rage. A large part of the “celebrities” talk about them, from New York to Los Angeles, through London and lately also in Spain. However, what makes chia seeds so important in our diet and so healthy?

Chia seeds are considered as a superfood because they do not contain gluten and do contain essential fatty acids, such as omega 3, antioxidants, fiber, iron, calcium, potassium and protein. Specifically, the chia seeds contain:

  • 5 times more calcium than milk.
  • 3 times more antioxidants than blueberries.
  • 3 times more iron than spinach.
  • 2 times more fiber than oats.
  • 2 times more potassium than bananas.
  • Chía


  • They contribute to weight loss and control cravings. Due to their high fiber content, they create a feeling of satiety, so they help to brake and control itching between meals.
  • They help maintain the body’s level of hydration, as they absorb 10-12 times their weight in water. They are recommended for athletes and people who are normally very active. They can be consumed before going to the gym or going for a run.
  • Chia seeds are a healthy source of omega 3. Omega-3 fatty acid is good for the central nervous system, our cells, and many of our vital organs. It also keeps our skin and hair shiny. It has been shown that chia seeds contain more of this fatty acid than some fish, such as salmon. So they are a good alternative.
  • Protect from the harmful effects of the environment. Consuming chia seeds daily helps us because of its high antioxidant content to protect us from contamination, tobacco smoke and UVA rays.
  • They calm joint pain. Omega 3 fatty acid also has anti-inflammatory properties, so pain is greatly reduced. Aztec warriors said it healed knee injuries!
  • Purifying and antioxidant properties. The chia seeds help to eliminate liquids and toxins, regulate the intestinal flora, prevent cell oxidation. They benefit organic functions that keep us well on the inside and make it noticeable on the outside.
  • In our vegetable products catalog we have a variety of Veggie Patty made with chia seeds and it is available in two references depending on its format, two units of Bio Veggie Patty and Maxiburger format of 600 grams .
