The long sought after key to health and longevity in people’s lives has been discovered. The people who live the longest in the world are those who live on a diet supported mainly by fish. For the last 100 years since people have been connected enough to keep track, the oldest people in the world have typically been from Asian communities whose main sustenance is seafood. This says a lot about the nutritional value of seafood and requires more investigation. What people are beginning to understand today is that fish is an unsuspecting super food.
Scientists have begun to take a real interest in the nutritional value of seafood since connecting this to longevity. They know about the high protein content of these foods and the low fat content. Recently, however, scientists have discovered what they think is the key: Omega-3 fatty acids. These are “good fats” that are found predominantly in fish and other seafood. These fatty acids play a role in immunity from major diseases like heart disease, certain cancers and they help to increase brain function.
With respect to longevity, it seems that Omega-3 fatty acids play a major role in providing a kind of invincibility shield against the most common fatal diseases in modern society. This is an astounding finding. It shows that the positive correlation between longevity and having a seafood based diet isn’t just a coincidence. The reality is that seafood provides a high level of protein, a low amount of saturated fat and a high level of Omega-3 fatty acids that combine to create a powerful cocktail that leads to a strong immunity system and overall health.
So if you are looking for the latest super food to kick start you into a healthy lifestyle, look no further. Switching to a diet that is seafood based is your answer. You should be aware to stay away from seafood that has a high mercury content and look for wild and sustainably fished seafood. Switching your diet will be easy and delicious and well worth it. The people who are healthiest and live the longest have discovered the secret of seafood and now it’s your turn to be a part of it.
