Did you know eating seafood has many benefits to your wellbeing? Seafood is packed with vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids that meat and poultry cannot provide. It is a leaner protein that is low in fat and calories, which makes it a healthy diet choice. The American Heart Association recommends adults to eat a variety of seafood more often, especially oily fish like salmon, lake trout, and albacore tuna. The owners of Crab Corner Seafood House in Las Vegas, John and Mark Smolen, know the benefits to eating seafood for the body and mind. Today the brothers will give you a quick lesson on why you should eat seafood more often. 

·      Protects your heart:

Seafood is a great source of essential fatty acids called omega-3’s, which our bodies do not produce on our own. These fatty acids help your body function at an optimum level. Research shows that by eating one or two servings of fatty seafood such as salmon or lake trout will decrease your risk of heart disease by 36 percent. Consuming a diet high in omega-3’s prevents irregular heartbeats, reduce plaque buildup in your arteries, inhibit inflammation, and keep blood sugar at a healthy level.

·      Boost Your Brain Power

Fatty acids found in seafood helps your brain cell membrane communicate better to the rest of your body. Studies show people who eat a diet high in omega-3’s, had higher brain volumes in old age, and had significant decrease in cognitive decline and brain atrophy. Those who took fish oil scored much higher on standard tests of memory and thinking abilities compared to those who did not take fish oil. A study done at the University of South Dakota, linked higher levels of fatty acids to larger sized brains, which means a delay in the normal loss of brain cells that comes with aging and helps prevent Alzheimer’s. 

·      Improve Your Mood

Eating fish and seafood is important to the brain’s development and functions. Studies show, omega-3 increases serotonin and dopamine levels, which is the hormone responsible for maintaining mood balances. A deficit in these hormone levels can lead to depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. The omega-3 in fish also alleviates any form of anxiety to keep you feeling more calm throughout the day. Experts say, children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are able to handle their disorder a lot easier with the positive effect seafood has on behavior and learning.
