The Norwegian Directorate of Health recommends that you eat seafood for dinner at least three times a week. And here are the good reasons why:

Fish is a particularly good source of marine omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, both of which offer several beneficial health effects. These and a number of other nutrients found in seafood are considered essential to human health. This means that the body needs them, although it does not itself produce them. 

  • Your heart likes fish because the marine omega-3 fatty acids help the blood flow through the veins and arteries. Therefore eating fish helps prevent cardiac infarction. Read more about fish and the heart.
  • Your brain likes fish because the marine omega-3 fatty acids help connect the brain cells. This helps avoid depression and makes learning new things easier. Read more about fish and the brain.
  • Your skeleton likes fish because vitamin D helps to maintain and strengthen the skeleton. Read more about fish and the skeleton.
  • Pregnant women should eat more fish because the marine omega-3 fatty acids are important ’building bricks’ for the brains of both mother and child. Read more about fish and pregnancy.
  • Seafood is better than capsules because the effect of the marine omega-3 fatty acids is best when eaten together with other important nutritional content in seafood. Read more about seafood and capsules.
