Your Immune System And Seafood

Costas Inn immune system and seafood

Discover the connections between your immune system and seafood!

The importance of immune health has become increasingly apparent, and many people often find themselves looking for the best types of immune-boosting foods to incorporate into their diet. Fortunately, certain types of seafood can boost your immune system. Good nutrition is an essential component of a healthy immune system, and seafood is already a great addition to any diet. However, knowing the specific types of seafood that can help enhance your immune system can always be beneficial. Consider the following key facts when it comes to your immune system and seafood. 

Essential Nutrients For Your Body

The best way to boost your immune system effectively and efficiently through seafood is by eating a wide array of seafood. Fish and seafood are recommended to encourage the health of your body overall, and eating a dish that is high in fish – specifically fish with high omega-3 fatty acids – can lead to a lower risk of mortality. 

Crabs, like all shellfish, are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are especially useful in reducing the “stickiness” of blood platelets, so it makes your red blood cells flow through your body more smoothly. Omega-3 acids also help reduce the level of triglycerides and LDL (low-density lipoproteins), which can choke up artery walls.

Seafood And B Vitamins

When it comes to your immune system and seafood, both should be full of beneficial B vitamins. B vitamins like B6, B12, and B2 are essential components of a robust immune system. These vitamins reduce inflammation in the body and help keep your general health thriving. Fortunately, seafood, both fish and shellfish, offers a range of different B vitamins that your body needs. 

Vitamin D And Seafood

Vitamin D is a critical component of a thriving, strong immune system. Fatty fish happens to be one of the most effective sources of vitamin D out there. This means that fishes like sardines, tuna, herring, and salmon are all high in vitamin D. Enjoying these kinds of seafood can be a great and efficient way to boost your immune system while creating a diet rich in variety and interesting seafood flavors.
