This month we will be sharing with you our second article about the benefits of seafood. Last month we looked at the overall benefits of seafood. If you missed this article, click here to read it now.

Many people associate seafood with Omega-3 and most of us know that this is good for our health but many of us don’t know exactly how important it is.

Omega-3 is one of the essential fatty acids, so termed as they are considered critical to the body. Our body is not able to produce these in sufficient quantities, so we must get them from our diet.

The health benefits of omega-3 include:

  • Improved brain function
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Cholesterol support
  • Overall organ health
  • Bone health
  • Management of blood pressure
  • Skin maintenance.

There is a considerable amount of evidence that suggests it is vital to include foods high in omega-3 rather than relying on taking a supplement. There are some huge claims made about omega-3 and their impact on things such as behaviour and learning in children but the research is still inconclusive on this. I think that there is more than enough evidence to conclude that we should include seafood in our diet due to the significant health benefits of omega-3. In time, research will more than likely find other benefits of this essential fatty acid.
