Polyunsaturated fatty acids are a family of acids characterized for not being able to be synthesized by our bodies. Lacking these acids produces deficiency effects that disappear when added to our diet; this is the reason why they are called essential acids. Fatty acids derive from animals, oil fish and plants, of which chia seeds are one of the most important. Chia seeds are distinguished by their abundance of polyunsaturated fatty acids; 60% of said acids are made up of alphalinolene omega-3 fatty acid, which is a precursor of DHA and EPA.
