Myrtle Beach, Eat More Seafood!
We’ve often heard the slogan “Eat More Chicken” and maybe we’ve even heard “Eat More Beef” but, how about “Eat More Seafood”?! Did you know that seafood is rich in nutrients, Omega-3’s(the good fat), vitamins, and protein? Certain types of seafood include B-complex vitamins, such as B1, B3, biotin, and B12), as well as vitamin D and vitamin A, and trace minerals such as phosphorous, magnesium, and selenium.
Omega 3’s raises the HDL cholesterol, which is the good fat. This helps reduce your chance for heart disease and fight inflammation. Omega 3’s are also known for helping level out mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety, and keeping an overall healthy brain. Fetal development, eyesight, bone and joint health are all a benefit of Omega 3’s as well. It is also known for fighting autoimmune diseases.
B vitamins contain a wide range of health benefits such as fighting inflammation, red cell production, increasing energy, mental sharpness, prevention of cardiovascular disease, and much more!
Vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium and phosphorous, maintains bone and tooth health, supports brain, immune system, brain and nervous system health. It also helps with managing diabetes, supporting lung function and cardiovascular health. Vitamin A also supports bone, teeth, and the immune system, as well as eyesight.
Protein is used in our body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Sometimes protein gets a bad rap because it can be high in the bad kind of fat but fish is a lean fat so, no need to worry about that!
Trace minerals are equally important for vital functions, as the rest of the above mentioned elements. Another way to add the health benefit of seafood is too choose one of our nutritional options for your side dish, such as asparagus or lima beans!
