The Incredible Benefits of Eating Shrimp
Not only is shrimp delicious, but this popular seafood option is also linked to many positive health benefits. Shrimp can help with bone health, weight management, brain health, and so much more.
Shrimp is a broad name for the hundreds of small crustacean animals living in marine habitats. Cultures across the globe consume shrimp because of its taste, as well as its health benefits.
The meat of shrimp is in its tail, which is what most people eat or use to prepare seafood dishes. Individuals hoping to eliminate excess carbohydrates from their diet can seek shrimp to reduce their carb intake. Shrimp has absolutely no carbs and only about one calorie per gram. The nutritional value of shrimp is high, thanks to the zero carbs, low calories, and high protein composition of the food. Shrimp also has an individual’s daily intake of iron, calcium, sodium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin E, B6, vitamin B12, iodine, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin.
In addition to the nutritional value of shrimp, this seafood can help with weight loss, anti-aging, age-related macular degeneration, hair loss, cardiovascular disease, bone health, decreased menstrual pain, brain health, and even anti-cancer activity. The omega-3 fatty acids, cholesterol, carotenoids, calcium, and additional contents of shrimp contribute to assisting with these health concerns.
