Benefits of Adding Seafood to Your Diet
The American Heart Association has consistently supported the overall health benefits of seafood in your diet. It is the best way to take in Omega-3 fatty acids as well as a variety of essential nutrients that most seafood contains naturally, but other foods don’t.
A few of the benefits you can expect from adding servings of fish to your weekly meal rotation include
- Vital nutrients can help improve your overall cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of heart attacks
- Healthy fats can aid in brain development and daily function
- Seafood consumption can help boost your mental health and lessen your risk of depression and other issues
- It is a great source of protein that helps lessen joint pain
- Contains Vitamin D and B2. This helps boost your nervous system and reduce inflammation
- Many types of fish contain essential amino acids that help give you energy and build up your immune system
Adding fish to your diet at least twice a week is the best way to take in important vitamins and minerals that might be missing from other food sources. We are excited to bring you the Seafood Box to get you going!
