Health Benefits of Eating Fish
You should visit your local fish market often because of the health benefits of eating fish. Choosing to prepare fish for dinner is a no-brainer any day of the week. When you know what you are getting with every delicious bite of fish, you’ll understand. City Fish Market has been making it easy for families to enjoy fish recipes since the 1930s. We realize that, in a way, we’re doing a good deed by selling fresh fish that will tempt appetites. Read on to learn some of the many health benefits of eating fish.
The Heart of the Matter
To zero in on the heart of the matter, fish is great for your ticker. What organ in your body is more important than your heart? Fish is heart-healthy because of the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, which include:
- Lowers blood pressure
- Reduces irregular heartbeats
- Reduces blood clotting
- Decreases triglycerides
- Lowers your chance of having a heart attack or stroke (the two leading causes of premature deaths)
How would you like to reduce your chance of another cardiac episode by nearly 17%? All you have to do is enjoy the recommended weekly amount of one of the oily varieties of fish such as salmon, halibut, tuna, or bass.
Anyone Need a Lift?
Those same omega-3s that help your heart can also help lift you out of depression. Mounting evidence shows that the fats in omega-3s help regulate mood. So, first, enjoy a great fish recipe that pleases the taste buds, such as any of the following, and then a bump in your mood may follow:
- Salmon Pie with Roasted Peppers
- Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce
- Tuna Roasted on Leeks, Potatoes, and Sage
- Baked Halibut Georgiana
- Lemon Pepper Grilled Halibut
Give Your Brain a Boost
You hear about things, but can fish really improve your brain fitness? It has been proven that with age, there is often a decline in brain function. Studies have shown repeatedly that the ones who eat fish regularly are also the ones whose mental decline is slowed down significantly.
Fish aren’t just good for senior citizens. From babies up, eating fish every week helps with the good development and maintenance of “gray matter,” which is the major functional tissue in the brain. So, what’ll it be for dinner?
