These days, most people know about the benefits of fish oils. They contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which aid in brain function, heart health, and lowering incidences of childhood disorders and cancer.
They also help with high blood pressure and cholesterol and prevent arthritis and abnormal heart rhythms.
Fish oils can be found in such seafood as salmon, tuna and halibut, as well as fruit, olive oil and garlic.
Fish is also a great place to get protein. As www.weightlossforall.com states:
Fish protein is of very high quality, and contains sufficient amounts of all the essential amino acids required by the body for growth and maintenance of lean muscle tissue. The proteins in fish, as well as similar seafood, make up complete protein sources for many people around the world.”
Eating fish is a great addition to most weight loss regiments. Many diets incorporate fish for its lean cuts and high protein.
Fish is low-fat and has vitamins like riboflavin, the Washington State Department of Health’s website states.
Riboflavin “aids the body in the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids and carbohydrates and Vitamin D, which aids calcium absorption to prevent osteoporosis,” according to the site.
“Fish is also rich in calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, potassium (a mineral needed for muscles, nerves and fluid balance in the body), iodine and magnesium,” it goes on to say.
