If you did not know it, eating fish produces many good benefits. Yes, there are many people out there who are cautious of eating fish because of the fact that now day’s fish has a lot of mercury in it. We need fish in our diet, so you should check which types of fish have the most mercury in them so you know to stay clear of that type of fish.

Fish contains Omega-3 fatty acids which actually are really good for one’s body. These fatty acids actually help to prevent diseases and cancers from happening. Here are other benefits:

1. Helps Avoid Depression – As stated above, fish contains Omega-3 fatty acids, and these are known to increase the levels of serotonin in the human brain. Therefore, the mind stays more optimistic and happier, leading to lesser instances of depression and low moods.

2. Fights off Alzheimer’s – Many people are worried that with old age they will get Alzheimer’s and one way to prevent this from happening is eating fish. Through eating fish you are actually lessening the risk of damaging brain cells through the polyunsaturated fatty acids. With that happening you are less susceptible of getting dementia.

3. Enhances Skin – A diet that contains fish such as salmon is known to act as a skin-enhancing regime. The regular, yet moderate consumption of fish has anti-aging, anti-wrinkle effects, thereby making the skin younger-looking.

4. Asthma – In children, especially, the risk of asthma gets greatly reduced if they are given a regular diet of fish. Fish is rich in protein, making up for a lot of nutritious components required during the period of growing up.
