Talking about fish, surely we already know what substances are contained in fish, such as protein, fats, vitamins (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin B1, B2, B3), and minerals (Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Iodine (from marine fish), Phosphorus, Selenium and Fluorine). Likewise, fish is very beneficial for human life and health. Want to know what are the benefits of substances in fish for human health? We see below!
Quoted from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation, Fish plays an important role in fighting hunger and malnutrition. Fish is not only a source of proteins and healthy fats, but also a unique source of essential nutrients, including long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, vitamin D, and calcium. Proteins that fish have also important for growth and development of the body, maintenance and repairing of worn out tissues and for production of enzymes and hormones required for many body processes.
Often eating fish can also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death from heart disease. In a study in more than 40,000 men in the United States, those who regularly ate one or more servings of fish per week had a 15% lower risk of heart disease. Researchers believe that fatty types of fish are even more beneficial for heart health due to their high omega-3 fatty acid content (Healthline.com).
In addition, which is familiar to us, often eating fish can also improve brain health. Studies also reveal that people who eat fish every week have more gray matter - your brain's major functional tissue - in the parts of the brain that regulate emotion and memory. That's all the benefits of eating fish and do not forget to eat fish! :D
