Part 2 will cover four more health benefits of eating shrimp.
5) Healthier Heart
Despite cholesterol concerns, research indicates you won’t be harmed by eating shrimp. These cute crustaceans can help prevent heart disease because they contain omega-3 fatty acids, which contain anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, adding shrimp to your regular diet can decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.
6) Skin Protection
Make sure to use sunscreen, minimize sun exposure, and take other precautions to protect your skin. In addition, shrimp provides astaxanthin, which can decrease the wrinkling of your skin by providing skin moisture and improving skin elasticity. Moreover, astaxanthin can decrease damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays, which helps lower the risk of skin cancer.
7) Weight Loss & Maintenance
Aid67 for people watching their weight, shrimp offers low calories while providing ample nutrients and protein. A diet dense in nutrients and high in protein is recommended for those seeking to lose weight and attain a leaner body mass.
8) Women’s Health
Research has found Astaxanthin to decrease moodiness, hot flashes, and joint pain that come with the onset of menopause. Adding omega-3 fatty acids to a woman’s diet help mitigate the unwelcome effects of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS can lead to depression, food cravings, fatigue, irritability, and mood swings.
