The Health Benefits of Eating Sushi

Sushi in Downtown Sarasota

Sushi Aids and Improves Metabolism in Your Body

Sushi is generally made up of raw fish, rice and seaweed although a few variants could exclude rice. The fish component of sushi is crucial because of what it provides to your body; low-fat protein (and high in quality), calcium, vitamin B2, omega-3 fatty acids are some of the minerals, protein and fat you get when you consume sushi. These aid and improve metabolism in your body hence elongating your life.

Sushi Lowers Blood Pressure

One of the bits and pieces we mentioned above – omega-3 fatty acid – is a great source of blood pressure regulator for your body; there are specific types of fish with a higher concentration of omega-3 fatty acid than the rest of the fish school: tuna, trout and salmon. If your BP is always at a high, including sushi into your diet at regular intervals helps lower your blood pressure and promotes the carriage of blood away from your heart by your arteries.

Sushi Fights Bacteria

Sushi is a mix of great ingredients. Ginger, a prominent ingredient with the ability to fight off infections, is mostly found in sushi. Its presence helps your body fight any bad bacteria your body has been plagued with.

Sushi Boosts your Red Blood Cells

Yes, you read that right. Sushi boosts your red blood cells by giving your body more iron to produce additional red blood cells. With this production comes the ability for proper ventilation within your lungs: the efficient and effective carriage of oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body and carbon dioxide to your lungs.

Sushi Assists in the Cancer Fight

With the presence of ginger and another piece in sushi known as wasabi, sushi fights the unstable molecules in your body which are set to grow into cancer cells; they are able to do this because of their anti-carcinogenic features.
