Health Benefits of Fresh Fish and Seafood

Most of us spend a great deal of time and energy trying to build happy and healthy lives for ourselves and our families. To get yourself into a state of positive wellness, this requires having your mind and body in a place where you’re comfortable and accepting of your current state. Health requires exercise, but most importantly, it requires a good diet. One of the best health foods is none other than seafood. The fresh fish and seafood we serve at Marker 32 is perfect for nearly any diet, and the great view is just a bonus! When seafood becomes a regular part of your diet, you’re doing wonders for your overall health.

 

Once you begin to research the (amazing) health benefits of seafood, you’ll quickly notice what you’ve been missing out on. It doesn’t take much to reap the benefits of seafood, either. All you need to do is incorporate some form of seafood into your diet once or twice per week. You’ll begin to experience the short- and long-term mental and physical health benefits in no time.

 

The Secrets of Omega-3

 

Obviously, we all want the best heart health that we can get. When you take care of our heart, the overall health of your whole body often follows suit. Omega-3 is an important fatty acid found in many types of seafood that can help with heart health. Whether you eat crab, squid, octopus or any type of fish and they are all going to contain this Omega-3 fatty acid that is working without you knowing it to improve your heart health. There have been countless studies conducted showing why the Omega-3 fatty acids are so good for you. Bottom line, the benefits are real. Don’t worry about taking fish oil supplements, either. As long as you’re working seafood into your diet at least once or twice a week (by visiting us at the North Beach Fish Camp, of course!), you’ll proactively lead your heart and the rest of your body to a healthier state.

 

Cholesterol Factor

 

Typically when you hear the word cholesterol, you think bad things like saturated fats. This is the type of bad cholesterol that you are going to find when you eat cheese, red meats, and so on. While it is true that fish contains cholesterol, it is not the type that is going to be damaging to your body. When you eat fish you’re feeding your body the good kind of cholesterol. As long as you’re not binge-eating fried fish, seafood will do wonders for your health.

 

Fresh Fish is Always Better

 

Something to note about enjoying the health benefits of seafood is that fresh fish is always going to be better than the alternative. The entire team at Marker 32 takes pride in preparing only the freshest seafood available from local fishmongers. Frozen seafood doesn’t provide the same vitamins and nutrients you get when your dinner comes right off the boat. Additionally, frozen fish has higher sodium levels which will likely counteract the benefits you’re receiving from trying to eat fresh seafood anyways.

 

Marker 32 is here to help you get your seafood fix on a weekly basis. Many of our health conscious guests make it into Marker 32 two to three times a week. Hop on the bandwagon and take advantage of the amazing health benefits and fabulous flavors you’ll experience when dining with us.
