The health benefits of seafood are frequently discussed–the ocean provides us with plenty of opportunities to stay healthy.  From crabs to shrimp, from seaweed to calamari, seafood provides us with a cocktail of nutrients and minerals we wouldn’t normally get as a packaged deal.  Mussels are one of the greatest, healthiest bounties of the sea.  If you aren’t convinced, and are against ordering a bowl of mussels at your next visit to Costas Inn, read on to find out all the fantastic health benefits that mussels provide.


Packed With Protein

 

Mussels are considered to be a great source of protein by the United States Department of Agriculture; they can provide up to 5 of the 6.5 ounces of protein recommended per day!  You need protein for almost every cell in your body to function, so this is an incredibly important part of your diet.  Mussels are almost entirely meat, which is what makes them so protein-packed.

 

Vital Vitamin A

 

Have you been getting your share of vitamins?  Vitamin A is essential for keeping your eyes, skin and immune system in top shape.  Your red blood cells will also benefit from the correct intake of vitamin A.  When you eat a 1-cup serving of mussels, you’re eating 240 international units of vitamin A.  This makes up a generous portion of your daily recommended vitamin A intake.

 

Necessary Nutrients

 

While there are other vitamins included in mussel’s makeup–like vitamin C and B12–there are also two very important nutrients.  Selenium and manganese are packed within mussels; eating just 6 ounces completes the recommended daily intake.  Selenium is great for your immune system, and manganese is important for keeping your blood from clotting.  Overall, mussels are one of the healthiest types of seafood you could eat.
