Semilla de Cha: El Alimento Ancestral Vuelve al Presente

Por Natalia Sáez B.

La Chía es una planta de origen mexicano, cuya semilla ha sido ampliamente reconocida por sus beneficios. Durante siglos, las antiguas civilizaciones precolombinas la utilizaban como compuesto base para su dieta debido a sus amplias propiedades, siendo utilizadas como suplemento alimenticio.

 

Semillas

 

Fuente principal de Omega 3 y 6

Los ácidos grasos esenciales constan del Ácido Linoleico y el Ácido Alfa Linolénico. Se denominan así debido a que nuestro cuerpo no puede generarlos por sí solo. Al consumir el primero, el cuerpo lo utiliza para producir otras grasas que son también necesarias tales como el Acido Gamalinolénico y el Araquidónico. Este conjunto de ácidos forman el grupo de los llamados Ácidos Grasos Omega- 6.

Por otra parte,  el Acido Alfa Linolénico se utiliza para producir los Ácidos Eicosapentanoico y Docosahexaenoico; ambos forman la familia de Ácidos Omega-3, pudiéndose adquirir a partir del consumo de pescados de agua fría como trucha y salmón, pero principalmente de la Chía. Dentro de su perfil químico, esta semilla posee un 63% de Omega 3, no existiendo actualmente ningún otro producto que supere este porcentaje,  como el caso del pescado que solamente posee un 20%. 

Prevención de enfermedades

Los ácidos grasos insaturados presentes en la Chía son esenciales para el cuerpo, emulsificando y absorbiendo vitaminas liposolubles como A, D, E y K. Además contribuye a la respiración de los órganos vitales, ayuda a regular la coagulación de la sangre, células de la piel, membranas, mucosas y nervios. Además contiene una larga cadena de triglicéridos LCI en la correcta proporción,  reduciendo el colesterol adherido a las arterias.  Mantiene los niveles de azúcar en la sangre (gel de Chia), el cual puede ser útil en la prevención y control de la diabetes. Por otra parte,  facilita el crecimiento y la regeneración de tejidos durante el embarazo y lactancia, así como también ayuda a regenerar músculos para los atletas y físico-culturistas. Es un buen proveedor de calcio y también contiene Boron, que actúa como catalizador para el cuerpo, absorbiendo y utilizando el calcio disponible.

Iris Bravo conoce de su importancia. Como propietaria de Extremo Sur, empresa con casa matriz en Concepción, se dedica a  distribuir esta semilla tanto a nivel local como nacional.

Sus comienzos se remontan  hace cuatro años atrás, momento en que comenzó a importarla desde México directamente a la Octava Región. Posteriormente el Departamento de Bromatología, Nutrición y Dietética de la Universidad de Concepción certificó a la semilla de Chía como fuente natural de Omega 3, lo que permitió comenzar su distribución. Sin embargo, esta aún no lograba ser conocida por el público: Yo sabía lo que tenía en mis manos, por eso de  tanto insistir me empezaron a tomar en cuenta. El mismo efecto que producía en las personas nos dio la posibilidad de ir avanzando, señala orgullosa Iris.

Fue así como paso a paso logró demostrar las grandes cualidades de este producto, respaldado por los cientos de personas que hoy en día se benefician de sus propiedades.

Datos para un buen consumo

A la hora de incorporar esta semilla a su dieta, se debe tomar en cuenta que la dosis recomendada para un adulto es de dos a tres cucharaditas diarias, mientras que si ya se sufre de algunas enfermedades como las anteriormente nombradas, la dosis es de 5 cucharaditas diarias. 

 

 

Estante de semillas chia

 

En cuanto a su preparación, esta puede ser ingerida en variadas formas. Puede ser consumida como semilla entera, dejándola remojar por 20 a30 minutos en un vaso de agua helada hasta la formación de gel, o también molida, la cual no requiere remojo previo y puede ser consumida en frío como aderezo para ensaladas, en jugos naturales y con leche o algunos de sus derivados tales como el yogurt y la crema.

 

Otras de sus múltiples ventajas es que la semilla de Chía  no tiene olor ni sabor, facilitando su consumo para gente de todas las edades. Con respecto a su conservación, esta semilla tiene la particularidad de estar cubierta por un gel antioxidante, pudiendo almacenarse por años sin sufrir deterioro alguno en su composición.

Además de todas las virtudes ya enumeradas yo le descubrí otra propiedad a la semilla de Chía (partida la consumo). Durante muchos años padecí inconvenientes en los lagrimales que los médicos no podían curar y me hablaban de resignación. De casualidad escuché de las virtudes de la Chía para mi caso y comencé a consumirla hace dos años. Mi problema era el derrame de las lágrimas que me mostraba como siempre llorando o lagrimeando sería mejor expresado. Desde hace un tiempo mi malestar va siendo superado y ya casi no lagrimeo, el oftálmólogo no le encuentra explicación, pero es real. Aporto este dato para todas aquellas personas que padecen mi problema, que si bien no es grave no deja de ser molesto y antiestético. Mi correo es soyargentino11@hotmail.com. Abrazos

Responder

Hola,

Super bueno el dato de Iris realmente es una buena alternativa en la mejora de nuestra alimentación.

Y para todos aquellos que necesitan envasar la chia tengo disponibles frascos pet si necesitan muestras se las puedo hacer llegar y puedes pedir tu cotizacion al correo envaseselolivo@gmail. com

Les deseo una vida sana

Saluda

In this new red color, the 2014 Lexus RC Coupe will attract a lot of attention at first glance for sure. Lexus says this more dynamic red exterior paint color is made brighter and with more contrast due to an entirely new painting process that uses a two-color base of both silver and red. A box will open and you will see two columns in this box.
