Keep reading to find out how this delicious meal can help you feel your best:
It Has Plenty of Protein
Your body uses protein to build strong bones, muscle, cartilage, skin, and even blood. It also helps create enzymes, hormones, and vitamins. Proteins provide a healthy source of calories that gives your body the energy it needs to function. Protein also gives the body iron, which assists in bringing oxygen into the blood. Lean meat like fish is one of the healthiest sources of protein.
It Provides Useful Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The fatty acids found in fish are not created in the body but they do serve an essential purpose, which is why it is important to get them through nutrition. Omega 3-fatty acids can lower your triglycerides, decrease joint pain, lower inflammation, and might even decrease symptoms associated with ADHD. Some researchers have also started to determine that omega 3 fatty acids might even lower one’s risk for developing Alzheimer’s and dementia.
It Is a Good Source of Vitamins B6 and B12
B vitamins offer many health benefits including lowering stress levels and providing a natural treatment for anxiety and depression. They can also improve one’s memory, decrease symptoms associated with PMS, and lower the risk for heart disease. Sashimi offers a delicious way to get more B vitamins in your diet.
