Eating just two servings of fish each week helps protect your heart, brain, kidneys, circulation, immune system, teeth and skin and even improves your mood. Virtually every part of your body benefits from the nutrition derived in eating seafood regularly.
Fish is by far the healthiest protein: naturally low in calories and low in fat. And that fat is actually good for you - fish is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids, essential nutrients that our bodies cannot produce on their own. Cold water fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and halibut are a particularly good catch.
For over 15 years, experts have believed that omega-3s help minimize the effects of chronic disease. And more recently, researchers worldwide have devoted major attention to its study. The results are causing major waves.
The American Heart Association recommends consuming at least two servings of seafood a week to decrease the risk of abnormal heartbeats, slow the rate of plaque buildup in the arteries, lower blood pressure and improve overall vascular function. Other medical organizations such as the American Diabetes Association advise eating non-fried fish two or three times a week, and even list fish as one of ten “super foods” for diabetics. And there are boatloads of others who agree.
