5 Health Benefits of Eating Whitefish, Manhattan, New York

Cod, pollock, and other whitefish are a favorite of any seafood fan, thanks mostly to their soft, flaky meat and delicate flavors. Not only does whitefish give chefs the chance to get a little creative, but it’s also a healthy food you can put on your plate. Below are just a few of the health benefits whitefish has to offer.

Why Eating Whitefish Is Beneficial for Your Health

1. Builds Strong Bones

Calcium is essential for strong bones, but your body also needs phosphorus to use other minerals and maintain bone structure and density. Whitefish has a healthy dose of this essential mineral, potentially helping prevent osteoporosis and other age-related ailments.

2. Healthy Doses of Protein

seafoodProtein takes longer to digest than carbs or fat, giving you a satisfying feeling that helps keep cravings in check. A single 6-ounce serving of halibut can have over 30 grams of protein but only around 200 calories, making it one of the best foods for weight loss around.

3. Keeping the Blood Pumping

All whitefish is full of B12, a vitamin your body needs to produce new red blood cells. Not only can the B12 in your seafood relieve anemia and other medical conditions, but it may also give you more energy and improve nerve function throughout your body.

4. Reducing Inflammation

Arthritis, asthma, and many other diseases are caused by inflammation, which can be alleviated by getting enough vitamin B6 in your diet. For many people, whitefish has enough B6 to control inflammation, helping you stay healthy, comfortable, and active.

5. Boosting Your Immune System

In addition to healthy doses of other B vitamins, whitefish is also one of the best sources of B3, which is responsible for promoting a strong immune system. B3 can help you get over diseases more quickly and bounce back from injuries, so your favorite seafood platter can actually help you keep colds and the flu at bay.
