Eating seafood as part of a balanced diet.
Seafood can play an important part in a healthy balanced diet. Many types of seafood are valuable sources of the heart-protective Omega 3 fats. They are also a rich source of many key minerals such as iron, zinc, selenium & iodine; nutrients which are not readily available in many other foods.
Shellfish are naturally low in saturated fat. For example, a 100g portion of prawns (a typical prawn cocktail) contains only 0.2g of fat, whilst 100g of beef mince contains around 13.5g of fat.
Some benefits of eating seafood:
Herring is one the best food sources of vitamin D our bodies make this vitamin in sunlight so a useful top up on cloudy days for strong teeth & bones. Loaded with EPA and DHA, these fatty acids help prevent heart disease & keep the brain functioning properly.

Magnesium & calcium play an important part in maintaining heartbeat, regulating blood pressure. A rich source of iron transports oxygen throughout the body also necessary for cell to make energy and to help white blood cells kill bacteria.

Octopus is naturally high in iron this mineral is a carrier of oxygen and transports oxygen to cells, tissues & vital organs. Also plays a role in cell growth. Octopus produces more that your recommended amount of Selenium, which plays a role protein metabolism during digestion and acts as an antioxidant by ridding your body of damaging free radicals. When free radicals scavenge through your system, they feed on healthy cells and increase risk of chronic disease.
Octopus provides your entire daily requirement of vitaminB12. This vitamin is essential for metabolism, creating new red blood cells and supporting everyday brain functions. You need 2 -4 micrograms of vitamin B12 each day says the Office of Dietary Supplements. Having a 3-ounce serving of octopus for dinner offers more than 30 micrograms. There are no adverse effects from consuming too much B12 because you bode excretes excess amounts through urine.
