Guide to Fish and its Nutritional Value

Grilled Fish FDP vitasamb2001Whether you grill, fry or bake your fish or if you buy sushi made with raw fish, you’re getting some strong health benefits. Some varieties of fish are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and vitamins your body needs.

If you’re following a low-fat diet, fish is the ideal food –– it is high in riboflavin, fatty acids, amino acids, vitamin D and carbohydrates. Fish also provides phosphorus, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, magnesium and iodine. Diabetics benefit when they eat fish on a regular basis because the protein in fish helps to regulate blood sugar.
