Fish is essential to brain function and healthy nervous systems. Let’s not forget the wealth of vitamins and nutrients buried within seafood, like protein, vitamins A, B and D.
The potassium and high levels of omega 3 found in tuna reduce cholesterol in the blood vessels and lower blood pressure significantly. Mussels are high in B12 vitamins – so high that, in a single serving, you get more than the suggested daily target – as well as amino acids, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc. Salmon is a super food for those with bone, or joint, problems (and for heart and brain health). Cod is a brilliant low-calorie substitute for meat due to its high protein content.
