Health Benefits of Maryland Blue Crabs

Health Benefits of Maryland Blue Crabs

Maryland blue crabs have several surprising health benefits.

Maryland residents are very proud of their state. They take pride in their state flag and love their Maryland blue crabs. Many people would be surprised to realize that blue crabs actually have several health benefits. Once you discover these health benefits your next serving of crab will taste even better!

Omega-3

These fatty acids are commonly referred to as fish oil and are absolutely fantastic for your health. It is very common to see people supplementing their diet with fish oil pills. Instead of taking a pill every day, why not enjoy a delicious crab dish? Not only does Omega-3 help you maintain a normal metabolism, but it also decreases your chances of getting heart disease.

Selenium

In addition to crab, this mineral can also be found in organ meat.  It helps with a person’s cognitive function and reproductive health. If organ meat grosses you out, crab meat is another easy way you incorporate selenium into your diet.

Protein

Are you an athlete that requires a high protein diet? There are other great protein sources besides the typical beef, chicken, and turkey. You should consider eating more crab because it is essentially pure protein. On top of that, it is extremely low in calories which are an extra bonus for a lot of people.

Riboflavin

This is a part of the vitamin B group. It will assist an individual with energy production. Also, riboflavin promotes iron metabolism which will assist your body in creating red blood cells.
