Health Benefits of Eating Crab

Nutritional Benefits of Blue Crab

Attention all seafood lovers! You’d be excited to hear that fresh seafood is a healthy meal choice full of nutritional benefits. Seafood is an excellent source of protein and contains the necessary vitamins and minerals that our body needs to absorb. Crab is one of the best kinds of seafood to incorporate in your diet because it has benefits to keep your body strong and healthy.

High in Protein

Our bodies need protein to build and heal muscles, bones, hair, skin, and blood. Incorporating high protein snacks and meals into your diet keeps us fuller longer and helps limit our unhealthy snacking habits. After an active day, crab would be a great meal to have to help restore your body.

Keeps our Heart Healthy

Omega-3 acids have plenty of health benefits. For starters, it lowers your blood pressure, lessening the chances of developing heart disease. Omega-3 also helps reduce triglycerides (a type of fat found in the blood.) If you don’t control the number of triglycerides in the body, they can increase your chances of stroke, heart attack, or heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends that everyone eats fish that contains omega-3 at least twice a week!

A Great Source of Copper

Copper is needed to absorb, store, and metabolize iron in the body. It also boosts immunity, improves cardiovascular health, and improves our cognitive functions. If you have an illness or injury, you should incorporate copper in your diet because it promotes faster healing by enhancing the regrowth of cells.

High in Vitamin B2

Since vitamin B2 is water-soluble, it needs to be consumed through our diet to obtain its full benefits. Vitamin B2 helps convert nutrients into energy by breaking down protein, fats, and carbohydrates. It would be best if you consumed vitamin B2 daily because our body can only store small amounts of it, and it travels quickly through the body.
