It is said that seafood is one of the most exquisite bites of any gastronomy. The purity of this wonderful product of the sea is an exquisite temptation for any palate. But did you know that seafood also contains certain beneficial properties for your health? Keep reading, we give you some excuses to go eat seafood — as if you needed them.
1. It can prevent cardiovascular diseases and even some types of cancer
Seafood is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. The Fundación Española del Corazón (Spanish Heart Foundation) ensures that consumption of Omega-3 helps maintain normal cholesterol levels. Therefore, eating seafood in recommended doses can help reduce the chances of suffering a heart attack thanks to the control of cholesterol, as well as cardiovascular diseases and sudden death. Also, some studies suggest that the consumption of shellfish and fish could prevent some types of digestive tumours.
2. It contains many vitamins and minerals
Seafood is an excellent source of vitamins A, D and E. Vitamin A helps keep in good condition our vision, our skin, the immune system and some organs, while vitamin D helps absorb calcium for our bones and Vitamin E has antioxidant functions and protects us against tissue degeneration. In addition, shellfish also contain potassium, iron, sodium, selenium and calcium, among other minerals.
3. Seafood has many proteins
Most shellfish are low-calorie and have a high protein content, since they have all the essential amino acids. That’s why they are very satisfying foods, ideal for athletes.
Of course, eating seafood is beneficial for your health, but if you abuse them you can suffer diseases such as gout, like the great monarchs. Nothing is good in excess.
