Fish has been called “brain food.” Why is that? Well, your brain is made up of several things, including fats. Specifically, the fats in the brain are omega-3 with DHA, which is something found in… fish! Did you know that omega-3 fats are so important to early brain development that now they’re in baby milk formula and pregnant women are advised to eat two servings a week of fish nowadays?
Researchers have found that eating fish is healthy for people because they’re a high-protein, low-fat food. Fish are rich in “good” fats (the omega-3s). They’re low in “bad” fats (omega-6s). Research studies have concluded that eating a diet rich in omega-3 fats can help prevent or treat brain-related conditions. Some of these conditions include dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression.
What are some other benefits of eating fish? Well, they’re good for your cardiovascular health. In particular, they play a role in the regulation of blood clotting and blood vessel constriction. Some researchers say eating fish helps stem mental decline in older people. Fish can also help people deal with rheumatoid arthritis, irregular heartbeats, ADHD and dyslexia such that their symptoms are lessened or go away all together. It’s no wonder sales of “fish oil” tablets have exploded in recent years.
Fish have been feeding the world for centuries. Indeed, before megastores sold processed foods, hunters relied on animals, plants and fish from their nearby environment in order to live and grow. If you’re looking for natural and organic food, you can’t beat fish.
