Everyone knows that seafood is good to eat in moderation. Eating seafood twice per week can deliver essential nutrients to your body, like protein and vitamin D. Plus, fish have higher concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids than any other food on the planet! There are several reasons your body will thank you if you work seafood into your diet.
Fish Have Nutrients That You Normally Don’t Get Enough of
Fish are just packed with nutrients that are good for your body, and some of these nutrients are hard to find in other foods. Fish have high levels of high-quality protein, iodine, and various vitamins and minerals. The fats in fish are especially healthy, and the fattier the fish, the better. The fattiest fish include salmon, trout, sardines, tuna, and mackerel. One type of fat that most people are deficient in is fat-soluble vitamin D, which promotes calcium absorption. Eating fish twice per week can also help you to meet your omega-3 requirements. Omega-3 fatty acids can help to lower depression levels, lower inflammation, and lower your risk for Alzheimer’s disease.
Fish Can Help You to Age Gracefully
In addition to lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s disease in old age, the regular consumption of fish can strengthen the parts of the brain that regulate memory and emotion. Studies have shown that those who regularly consume fish have slower rates of cognitive decline in old age. Eating fish regularly can keep your mind sharp and strong!
Fish Can Make You Happier
Depression is one of the world’s biggest health problems. Many studies have shown that eating fish can help combat this debilitating health issue. Omega-3 fatty acids can significantly improve the effectiveness of antidepressant medications. So, eating fish can actually make you happier!
