The Value of Fish
Along with being a tasty protein, fish rates high as one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It is packed with important nutrients that can boost brain health, heart health, your immune system and eye health.
Most fish species contain high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, which help improve blood flow, support brain function, aid in reducing your risk of becoming depressed and improve your memory. It also contains vitamin B2 (which helps the body produce energy), vitamin B6 (which helps to reduce your risk of heart disease), vitamin D (which helps your body absorb calcium, in turn giving you strong bones) and niacin (which also plays a role in energy production).
