Chia seeds contain from 25% to 40% oil with 60% of it comprising (omega) ω-3 alpha-linolenic acid and 20% of (omega) ω-6 linoleic acid. Both essential fatty acids are required by the human body for good health, and they cannot be artificially synthesised. Animal studies have shown that chia seeds can improve both behavioural and physiological stress responses.
