Shrimp is a favorite dish of seafood lovers everywhere due to its delicious taste and ability to enhance any meal. Fortunately, it’s also packed with nutritional benefits that enhance your overall well-being. Billy’s Seafood in Bon Secour, Alabama, is the region’s leading purveyor of fresh fish and shellfish. Here, they discuss three surprising health benefits of shrimp.

3 Reasons to Eat More Shrimp

1. Boosts Energy

For such a tiny animal, a shrimp packs a big protein punch. Eating a high-protein diet helps build and repair the body’s muscles and boosts energy. While some animal proteins are high in fat, that’s not the case with shrimp. Low in saturated fat, the shellfish is an ideal source of protein without the calories.

2. Promotes Brain Health

ShrimpA rich source of iron, shrimp can help improve the cardiovascular system’s ability to provide the brain with oxygenated blood. This can lead to greater clarity and mental agility. In addition, the astaxanthin found in shrimp may increase memory capacity.

3. Promotes Weight Loss

With zero carbs and a low level of saturated fat, shrimp can help you avoid packing on unwanted pounds. Better still, it contains a lot of zinc, which may reduce cravings. It also has iodine, which helps to regulate the endocrine system, allowing for greater metabolic function.

Consuming shrimp is an integral part of a well-rounded and healthy diet.
