Fish is one of the most versatile foods on the planet, not to mention one of the tastiest! Not only that, but it’s loaded with health benefits too. No wonder nutritional experts tell us to eat fish at least twice every week.
Here we look at some of the ways that eating fish can positively impact your health and wellbeing:
Omega-3 is a class of polyunsaturated fatty acids that serves many vital functions for the heart and circulation, respiration, and immunity. Regular consumption of Omega-3s is associated with a wide range of powerful health benefits. In fact, studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids can fight chronic inflammation, combat depression, improve bone health, promote youthful skin, and reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
Protein is an important energy source and provides the building blocks for our muscles, bones, and skin. Did you know your hair and nails are made almost entirely of protein? This nutrient also plays an important role in digestion and hormone production. Because our bodies can’t store protein, it’s important that we eat the right amount of protein every day. Fish is one of the best sources of high-quality protein.
Yes, it’s true! Omega-3 deficiency has been linked to low levels of melatonin, the hormone that helps you fall asleep. In our busy, stress-filled lives, it can be hard to wind down at the end of the day. Melatonin is a central part of the body’s sleep – wake cycle, and having plenty of Omega-3 in our diet helps us to produce enough of it naturally without resorting to supplements.
Vitamin D is essential for an effective immune system. Moreover, we need vitamin D to help us absorb calcium, which strengthens our teeth and bones. Our bodies create vitamin D when sunlight shines directly onto our skin. However, if we don’t spend enough time in the sunshine, we struggle to make enough of this vital vitamin. So dietary sources of vitamin D are important, especially in fall and winter. Oily fish like salmon top the list of foods that supply vitamin D.
And fish’s healthy properties don’t end there. As well as all this, fish is packed with minerals like selenium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Minerals perform all sorts of functions in the body, playing a role in maintaining the heart, brain, muscles, and bones.
