People that consume fish have better heart health. This is unanimously agreed upon.
It is well established that unsaturated fatty acids from fatty fish play an important role as they are essential for the normal functioning of our bodies. Unlike the saturated fats found in meat and meat products, unsaturated can lower down cholesterol.
The key player that we have to shine the light upon is the group of fatty acids known as omega-3-fatty acids. You heard about them. They are most abundant in foods such as flaxseeds and fish.
They are a group, so there is naturally more of them, but the majority of scientific research focuses on the ALA, the EPA and the DHA. The first, ALA is derived from plant based food and the latter two mostly from seafood and fish.
DHA is especially important – very high in the tissue that builds the eye retina, brain and sperm.
Omega-3-fatty acids are found in abnormal quantities in seafood such is caviar. Especially in red caviar that comes from the salmon. Salmon is the kind of fish naturally very high in omega-3 and its caviar has even more of it.
Sturgeon black caviar has both EPA and DHA in great volume, as one serving contains almost up to 1,000 milligrams. The daily recommended doze for an adult person is 1.5 grams. It is unbelievable how much of it caviar contains.
Omega-3-fatty acids work on many levels. First, they can lower inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation can cause damage to blood vessels and this in turn can be a big risk factor down the road.
Next, they can create a major reduction in triglycerides, raise the levels of HDL – “the good” cholesterol. They can help improve the strength and durability of blood vessels as they prevent plaque formation and blood platelets from clumping together.
The bottom line is that by eating caviar you can achieve these benefits. Of course, don’t rely only on caviar as for optimum heart health a naturally healthy lifestyle needs to be applied.
When buying caviar always aim for the least salted or malossol caviar. The high sodium levels in some caviars can raise your blood pressure which is not so beneficial. Luckily, this is not a major issue since caviar also has a lot of potassium which lowers the blood pressure. You will not eat more than a spoon or two at a time as that is the way how caviar is served, so no need to worry too much about that salt content.
Other than omega-3 caviar has something else that positively affects your cardio-vascular health. Vitamin B12 that is the building component of blood cells and large amounts of iron. Due to this caviar can help in hemoglobin regeneration and can aid people with anemia to prevent iron deficiency.
Normally, if you are suffering from some specific condition you should always first consult your health-care practitioner.
All in all caviar, due to high content of omega-3-fatty acids can be labeled as the guardian of your health. You can safely consume it two to three times per week and enjoy not only the health benefits but also its superb taste. You are always welcome to take a look at some of the best caviars that Bond Caviar has in its store. My recommendation this time, try salmon roe.
It contains the highest amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
Stay safe and enjoy!
