The Health Benefits of Eating Seafood

The Health Benefits of Eating Seafood

Seafood is good and good for you!

Summer in Maryland is the perfect time of year to enjoy the delectable fresh seafood of the area. While crab cakes and steamed crabs are synonymous with the hot and humid months, did you realize that they are actually good for you? Maryland seafood offers a comprehensive range of health benefits so that you can feel even better about feeding yourself and your family these delicious dishes. What are the health benefits of eating seafood?

Seafood Gives You Micronutrients

While all of these benefits depend on the exact type of Maryland seafood you are eating, in general, seafood is a natural source of many vitamins and minerals. Maryland seafood contains:

  • B-complex vitamins like B1 and B12, that are responsible for your energy levels, metabolism, concentration, and hair and nail health
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin A, which helps to protect your eyes and increase your immune system’s strength
  • Vitamin D, which allows for healthy bone growth, calcium absorption, and increases your overall immune system efficiency

Seafood Boosts Your Heart Health

Maryland seafood is incredibly nutritious thanks to omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids have been proven, in many different medical studies, to benefit heart health. They dramatically reduce the risk of cardiovascular events from affecting you, including arrhythmias, strokes, and heart attacks. While many people actually take omega-3s in capsules, most doctors recommend getting it straight from the source whenever possible.  

Seafood Gives Your Brain a Boost

The same omega-3s that are great for your heart is also great for your brain. A proper intake of omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Long-term omega-3 ingestion can also help to improve cognitive function in older women and men.
