Crabs are a tasty source of seafood that has been part of the American cuisine since colonial times. Crab meat has become an ingredient in many of our recipes. Even though some think of crab as just a tasty crustacean, they can also be beneficial for your health as part of a balanced diet. The following will cover several of the key health benefits from eating crab.
High in phosphorous, crab meat contains this mineral that is crucial for the growth of bones and teeth. More crab meat in the diet will provide calcium and phosphorous, minerals beneficial for those who may be at risk for osteoporosis.
The combination of vitamin B2, selenium, copper, and omega-3 fatty acids in crab meat promotes improved nervous system activity and cognition. The mix also reduces plaque and inflammation in neural pathways.
Omega-3 fatty acids found in crab meat are known to balance cholesterol levels and promote anti-inflammatory activity. A proper balance will reduce strain, decrease blood pressure, and help in the prevention of atherosclerosis.
A strong immune system helps keep people healthy. Research found selenium acts as an antioxidant and has a direct correlation to the stimulation of immune system activity. As a result, your immunity is boosted against chronic diseases.
Numerous costly products make the claim that they can detoxify your body. There is no need to purchase them if you add crab meat to your diet. Higher phosphorous levels aid in improving kidney function, resulting in improved metabolic efficiency and more rapid flushing of toxins from the body.
Copper aids in iron absorption inside the gut, a process which is important in the production of red blood cells and increased circulation. This ensures oxygenated blood will be circulated to every part of the body for efficient and complete functioning.
