Protects Against Heart Disease
Although the high cholesterol content has provoked worry regarding shrimp intake, research indicates there really is no harm in consuming that beloved shellfish. In fact, shrimp can actually protect against heart disease, thanks to its omega-3 fatty acid content, as evidence has shown shrimp consumption can reduce LDL (or “bad”) cholesterol and triglycerides, all while raising HDL (or “good”) cholesterol. Shrimp also supplies omega-3 fatty acids, notoriously known for its role in heart health and anti-inflammatory properties.
Shrimp can be an integral food item to benefit women’s health. Astaxanthin has been shown to reduce hot flashes, joint pain, and moodiness that often surfaces during menopause.
