Do you have seafood twice a week?! We love seafood and the benefits of some of the different types of seafood. When I think of making seafood at home, the first thing that comes to mind is Gorton's seafood. I visited their website and found these great perks:
"The Super Food for Feeling Good
It’s common knowledge that seafood is good for you and there are multiple reasons why. Fish and seafood – like shrimp, tilapia, and salmon – are a natural source of lean protein and critical nutrients like vitamins and minerals including iron; zinc; and vitamins A, B and D.
But what really sets fish apart from other healthy foods is that it is a natural source of two healthy omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Research shows these omega-3 fatty acids promote good health and may reduce your risk of chronic disease. Since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fatty acids, it’s important to regularly include them in our diets.
Omega-3? Oh, Mega Life Saver!
Omega-3 fatty acids, which occur naturally in fish, benefit the hearts of both healthy people and those at high risk of – or who have – heart disease.
The link between omega-3 fatty acids and heart disease risk reduction are still being studied, but research has shown many benefits including reduced inflammation, a known cause of heart disease and stroke.
The American Heart Association recommends that we eat fish at least two times per week.
Health Benefits of Eating Fish
Studies show that a diet containing omega-3 fatty acids may:
- Promote heart health
- Decrease blood pressure, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels
- Improve arthritis and joint pain
- Lessen symptoms of depression and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Support eye health
- Enhance brain growth and development
- Aid brain growth in unborn babies, infants and kids
- Decrease the risk for certain cancers
- Reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease"
We appreciate the complementary products that we received. All opinions are honest and our own.
