Fish is Great
Fish not only tastes great it also does great things for the body and mind!
We believe that fish tastes great and that it should be included in a healthy diet. But don’t take our word for it! Have a look at some of the comments we have taken from websites:
A healthy diet should include at least two portions of fish a week, including one of oily fish. ‘That's because fish and shellfish are good sources of many vitamins and minerals. Oily fish – such as salmon and fresh tuna – is also particularly high in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which may help to keep your heart healthy. Most of us should have more fish in our diet, including more oily fish. However, there are maximum recommended amounts for oily fish, crab and some types of white fish. There is additional advice for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and children and babies.’ Read the NHS full article here
Benefits of eating fish ‘Fish is a superfood. Packed with vitamins and minerals, and a major source of omega-3 fatty acids, fish can help to protect against a range of diseases, from cancer to heart disease, depression to arthritis.’ Read Saga's article here
Why fish is so good for you ‘Fish is healthy: easy to digest and with a high level of precious proteins, fish is considered an important part of a healthy diet. And with the so-called omega-3 fatty acids fish has an added bonus. These fatty acids, like docosahexaeonic acid (DHA) occur mostly in fatty fish like herring, salmon and mackerel. They are thought to lower the blood pressure, to strengthen the immune system and to have positive effects on the development on the nervous system and the cardiovascular system’ Read Science Daily's article here
‘Eat more fish and less meat. It's so simple, really, but this is probably the most powerful change that you can make in your diet.’ Read the Dr Gourmet article here
Omega-3 in fish: How eating fish helps your heart ‘If you're worried about heart disease, eating one to two servings of fish a week could reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack.’ Read the full article from Mayo Clinic here
However, as with all great things too much consumption of one thing is not good. So maintain a healthy mixed diet that includes sustainable fish.
