Do you love sushi? Ready to love it even more? Well, get this: sushi is super healthy for you in more ways than one. It’s great for the heart, metabolism, brain, and immune system. Read on to learn more!
Looking to eat something that tastes delicious and is also considered a health food? Then look no further than sushi! From now on, as you eat your sushi, you can thank yourself for doing a real service for your heart, brain, and general wellbeing.
Improves Heart & Brain Health
Sushi made with lake trout, tuna, herring, and salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids combat risk factors that contribute to heart disease by preventing the arteries from clogging and reducing blood pressure.
Moreover, omega-3 fatty acids are great for your brain as they promote brain cell regeneration. Those who consume higher amounts of this nutrient may begin noticing their concentration and focus increase, have more energy and experience reduced stress levels.
Fish is both high in protein and low in calories—a fantastic combo for our metabolism. Low-calorie, high-quality proteins can help our bodies function more efficiently, produce new cells, and metabolize energy, ensuring we feel healthy and energized for many years to come.
Although the toppings and ingredients differ, most sushi rolls include wasabi and ginger, both of which contain antioxidant chemicals that have anti-carcinogenic qualities. These antioxidants have the power to neutralize free radicals, preventing them from mutating into cancer cells.
Strengthens Immune System
Wasabi and ginger have antibacterial properties. This means that these two accompaniments may be able to help destroy undesirable bacteria, while boosting your immune system in the process.
While sushi is a heart-healthy dish that infuses your body with an abundance of vitamins and minerals, there are some caveats to keep in mind. An average piece of sushi has only 200 calories, but by adding mayonnaise-based sauces and tempura coatings, you can easily double, if not triple, the calories.
