A fresh look at fish

Nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik, dives into the numerous health benefits of this goodness-packed protein

Fish shouldn’t be just for Fridays. Depending on the type of fish, you’re getting lean protein, vitamins A, D, B12, B6 and magnesium, iron, selenium and iodine – nutrients we naturally fall short of in our daily diets. We also get great ‘brain food’ from omega-3 essential fatty acids so prevalent in fish, one of which, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), can help support sharper cognitive processes and, studies show, is linked to decreased risks of neurodegenerative and anxiety disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and depression. It is also essential for pre- and post-natal neurological development and as we age. Compelling research into the other main fatty acid, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), also delivers cardiovascular benefits and promotes anti-inflammatory processes in the body. The best thing is to gain both EPA and DHA through naturally derived sources, and the highest omega-3 content is found in oily fish – think wild salmon, mackerel, trout, sardines, pilchards, Arctic char and anchovies.
