Research has shown that eating fish and shellfish regularly is beneficial in many ways. Not only does seafood taste delicious, it’s also known for its health benefits and nutrition. Fish and shellfish pack healthy amounts of protein, polyunsaturated fat, and omega-3 fatty acids. At the same time, they are low in total fat, saturated fat, calories, cholesterol, and sodium. To add to their appeal, they are naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, such as iron and B-vitamins.
Omega-3 fatty acids are found primarily in seafood, and a growing body of evidence indicate they may provide a number of health benefits:
- Maintain cardiovascular health by regulating blood clotting and vessel constriction.
- Reduce tissue inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
- Play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat).
- Reduce depression.
- Halt mental decline in older people.
