Health Benefits of Eating Seafood

Formally educated as a mechanical engineer, Jacob Kingston functions as the CEO of Washakie Renewable Energy in Plymouth, Utah. Besides his professional endeavors, Jacob Kingston maintains a passion for cooking and is a connoisseur of seafood.

The following are some of the health benefits of eating seafood:
- Seafood maintains heart health. Seafood such as crab, octopus, prawn, and salmon is low in saturated fats, so it has negligible impact on blood cholesterol levels. It also contains high levels of protein. Almost all seafood has omega-3 fats that are believed to reduce the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes.
- Fish is an excellent dietary source of vitamin D. Although our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when they are exposed to sunlight, over 70 percent of the U.S. population is vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D deficiency may result in various diseases, including rickets, a weak immune system, and an increase in a person’s risk for cancer. In this context, fish can be a great help, as one serving of salmon (about 4 ounces) can provide 100 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin D.
- Seafood helps you maintain beautiful skin. The intake of fatty acids from seafood not only moistens your skin naturally, but also protects it from UV rays when exposed to the sun. Eating seafood may also reduce the severity of acne.
