3 Health Benefits of Fresh Seafood
That sushi roll and fried shrimp basket are good for so much more than a hangover cure. We live in one of the top seafood meccas in the country, so finding fresh, high-quality seafood is as easy as could be. But serving it up just right with a waterfront view? Yeah, that only happens at Palm Valley Fish Camp. Here are three super important reasons to stop on by for some delicious seafood this summer:
Treat ‘Yo Self to Some Omega-3s
You’ve heard it a million times that fish is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids. But what does that even mean? We’re here with the scientific version (and the layman’s terms one for regular people like us).
Omega-3s are a polyunsaturated fat that’s necessary for our body to function but can’t be produced naturally within our bodies. Our body uses long-chain Omega-3s like DHA to aid in brain, retina and heart function.
All these fancy words really mean is that when you eat fish high in Omega-3s, you give your body nutrients to prevent diseases and improve organ function. That’s a win, win in our book.
Turn that Frown Upside Down
All jokes aside, many studies link seafood to preventing and treating depression. If you experience frequent sadness, energy loss and disinterest in life, you’re likely experiencing the most common forms of depression. One simple way to potentially combat the illness is to eat fish high in key nutrients.
This is another reason to indulge in Omega-3s. That salmon filet can quite literally make you smile, especially when prepared by the gourmet geniuses in the kitchen at Palm Valley Fish Camp.
How we do it: Grilled Salmon with Shallot Dill Butter, Steamed Spinach, Parsley Potatoes
Don’t Sleep on Vitamin D
Fish is one of the only substantial sources of Vitamin D…that’s a big deal, people. Our bodies treat Vitamin D like a steroid hormone and a staggering 41-percent of Americans are deficient. Eat fish like salmon and herring to maintain healthy bones, support your immune system, regulate insulin levels and so much more.
Another important source of Vitamin D is sunlight, which makes it deserving of its “sunshine vitamin” nickname. Dine outside on the Intracoastal at Palm Valley Fish Camp to get your dose of fresh fish and fresh air.
