Reaping The Benefits Of Eating Seafood
Spread the love
Let’s be realistic—eating healthy is something we all should do, but rarely follow through with. Millions of people make new year’s resolutions to focus on a beneficial diet instead of inhaling processed foods and junk. Yet very few succeed in doing so. Rather than make another empty promise to yourself, take serious action and make 2022 the year in which you take control of your eating habits for the better. There’s no better way to start than by incorporating seafood into your diet.
Maintaining a healthy heart is very important—and seafood can help. The American Heart Association recommends two to three servings of seafood a week. Fish contain a substantial amount of Omega-3’s which are essential in preventing abnormal heart rate and can even help lower blood pressure.
Boost That Brain Power
You’ve been told since you were a child that fish is “brain food.” This is quite true. One reason you heard this as a child is because fish can assist brain development during the formative years of a child’s life. As an adult, the fatty acids in fish can help prevent cognitive decline and some studies have shown that regular consumption can improve mood.
Hair and Skin Health
We’re a society that puts a lot of emphasis on appearance. Luckily, regular consumption of fish is beneficial for your hair and skin. For many years, people have been consuming fish oil on a regular basis to help promote these attributes that are synonymous with appearance. Salmon, Herring, and Mackerel are great sources of the nutrients your body needs.
Immunity Thanks to the Sea
The global pandemic was a grim reminder that keeping safe from the unpredictable nature of life is of the utmost importance. Luckily, the consumption of fish has been clinically proven to strengthen your body’s immune system. Fish contain heavy amounts of vitamin A and B, both of which are responsible for promoting the growth of red and white blood cells which keep oxygen flowing and prevent disease.
