Eating Fish – Your Key To A Healthy Heart

fishYou would have come across several articles that claim that eating fish twice a week puts an end to various health issues and eliminates several health risks. In today’s show we delve into the truth behind this fact.

Fish especially those that have darker flesh like herring and salmon are chock full of heart healthy, good unsaturated, omega 3 fatty acids. Though these good fats impact your health in a good way, this is not the sole benefit of eating fish. The dietary guidelines proposed by the US health department state that adults should eat around eight ounces of fish and other seafood every week to get the whole lot of benefits of fish. The nutrients in seafood include Vitamins A, D, B, lean muscle building protein and other minerals like iron, zinc, selenium and iodine.

Fish is very low in cholesterol as well as saturated fat. Hence pregnant as well as breast feeding women are encouraged to eat around twelve ounces of fish. However you should avoid fish that has high methyl mercury like shark, tuna, sword fish and mackerel.

Fish is a preferred choice for protein than meat. Most people though only consider the omega 3 present in fish and do not consider a whole lot of other benefits that eating fish provides. On a comparison between the same portion size of cod and T-bone steak, it is found that fish contains twenty six grams of protein and only one gram of fat. The steak on the other hand though contains more proteins contains a higher amount of saturated fat. So, fish wins the battle hands down when it comes to the best source of protein.

However, remember that the nutrients depend on the type of fish you choose. So try to include all types of fish in your diet and do not forget to include nutrient rich river water fish.

Enjoy your fish and spike your health benefits!
