The benefits of eating fish

WHY IS EATING FISH HEALTHY?

Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of
health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any
other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids,
or the ‘good’ fats. Since the human body can’t make significant
amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet.
Also, fish are low in the ‘bad’ fats commonly found in red meat,
called omega-6 fatty acids.

WHY ARE OMEGA-3S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH?

A growing body of evidence indicates that omega-3 fatty acids
provide a number of health benefits. They:

  • help maintain
    cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting and
    vessel constriction;
  • are important for
    prenatal and postnatal neurological development;
  • may reduce tissue
    inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis;
  • may play a beneficial
    role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and
    halting mental decline in older people.
