4 Health Benefits of Eating Crab May 27, 2020

Bon Secour, Baldwin
4 Health Benefits of Eating Crab , Bon Secour, Alabama

Crab is indisputably one of the most popular seafood menu items. Not only is it delicious, but it also boasts a host of health benefits. Here are four reasons crab meat is an excellent addition to a nutritious diet. 

4 Reasons to Eat More Crab 

1. Boosts Brain Power

Fatty fish, such as crab, is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can enhance brain development and function. This seafood includes other brain-boosting nutrients as well, including vitamin B12, copper, and selenium, which can improve energy and concentration, reduce cognitive decline, and enhance memory.

2. Important Source of Protein 

crabCrab is also an excellent source of lean protein, containing around nine grams per serving. Protein supports muscle growth and connective tissue, which is why many athletes prefer a high-protein diet. Protein’s low glycemic index means it is digested more slowly, which can help you stay full longer. This may help you maintain or lose weight.

3. Promotes Cardiovascular Health 

Omega-3 fatty acids can improve cardiovascular function, reducing blood pressure, blood clotting, irregular heartbeats, and the risk of stroke or heart failure. The daily recommended intake for the average person is about 200 to 500 milligrams per day; crab has about 351 milligrams per 3 ounces. Furthermore, crab contains selenium and copper, both of which also have proven heart benefits.

4. Strengthens Bones 

Crab contains high amounts of phosphorous. Calcium is known for its bone-boosting benefits, but phosphorous is essential in helping strengthen bones and teeth. In fact, research indicates calcium is not as effective if not paired with phosphorous.
