Can Eating Fish Reduce the Risk for CVD?
Anyone concerned about cardiovascular disease (CVD) should consider adding more fish to their diet. In fact, eating healthier all around is a good way to decrease the natural buildup of plaque that leads to CVD. In this blog, we discuss how eating fish helps increase heart health and decreases CVD.
Fish and the Way our Body Uses it
We are a chemical reaction. Everything in our body is chemically produced. When you start to think about food as chemicals, the role that disease plays becomes a little clearer. It also means that you can make more informed decisions about the foods that you choose to eat. Health is all about choice, and better choices lead to better health.
That does not mean that food has to be bland or that all you will live on is celery. In fact, it can mean just the opposite. The Metabolic Research Center works hard to develop menus that are heart healthy, and that taste good. Fish is an excellent way to add health to your weekly menu.
How Fish Helps us Gain Health
There are many studies out that point out the healthy benefits of eating fish. If we break that down chemically, what we are looking at is the positive benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids. Fish like salmon are full of Omega-3 fatty acids. We did use the word “fatty,” but in this case it is a good word. Fatty acids help to modify proteins, which is a fancy way of saying that they help us build better proteins. Our body uses chains of proteins for everything it does.
Being capable of building better protein chains means better health. Amino acids are chains of proteins. The production of muscle cells begins with chains of proteins. Even our DNA is a chain of proteins. What does this mean for people who are concerned about CVD? It means that adding fish, such as salmon, tuna, trout, and even sardines to your diet gives your body an incredible amount of Omega-3 fatty acids from which it can build better health.
