OOmega 3 & the Benefits of Eating Fish

Omega-3 fatty acids improve your cardiovascular system

Good Fat & Great Seafood

Not all fats are to be feared. Scientific research consistently suggests that there are benefits of eating fish due to the presence of Omega-3 fatty acids, that are found in seafood. Omega 3's provide tremendous health benefits, from reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and dementia, to boosting mood and brain development in young children. Naturally rich Omega 3 fish includes salmon, lake trout, mackerel, and albacore tuna.

Omega 3 Fish

Just a few ways that Omega-3s
may help protect against heart disease:

• Making the blood less likely to form clots
• Preventing heartbeat abnormalities
• Lowering high levels of triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood that can increase the risk of heart attacks when its levels are too high)

Also known as Essential Fatty Acids, Omega-3s play a vital role in cell development and growth. Since our bodies cannot make these essential fatty acids, we must get them from our diet. That can be a delicious challenge. At Red Lobster, we can help you meet it. Just look for fish such as salmon and trout on our Today’s Fresh Fish menu.

If the fact that fish is naturally high in Omega-3s and protein and low in carbohydrates isn’t enough inspiration to enjoy what you love, the American Heart Association and the American Dietetic Association both recommend eating seafood at least twice a week.
