A bona-fide treasure chest of goodness.
It’s common knowledge that eating fish is good for you. What is not fully appreciated is how incredibly beneficial a diet that includes regular portions of fish can be.
Fish contains proteins of high biological value, which help us retain our body mass, improve digestion and boost our immune system. They also contain amino acids, which cannot be produced by our body alone. Most importantly, fish are an extremely rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which decrease cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as the incidence of heart disease and arteriosclerosis. Omega-3s have proven to be beneficial to all ages; they aid brain development and reduce the incidence of asthma in children, and prevent vision and memory loss in people over 75. As they are natural anti-inflammatories, they also help to limit the effects of rheumatoid arthritis. And the best part? Omega-3s are abundant in fish-farmed sea bream and sea bass—more so, in fact, than other ocean-roaming fish.
