We all know the ocean is overflowing with a wide array of scarcely touched nutrients. Out of the thousands of sea creatures in existence, we tend to eat but a few (which is leading to major issues of overfishing, but that is a whole other blog post). Yet, when it comes to trying new ocean inhabiting dishes, how many of us are willing to eat outside the box?
Seafood tends to be a ‘love or hate’ category of food. So, for those of you who hate anything with a shell or scaly exterior, we are very sorry. But those of you who love it all, you are in great luck!
Eating fish is a natural way to significantly improve your skin – especially when you eat sardines!
Of all of the seafood dishes, sardines seem to get the worst rep. This is likely because many of us associate them with cheap pizza toppings and canned food from the 1960s. But sardines are actually incredibly healthy, affordable, and environmentally friendly.
According to many scientists, sardines have more omega-3s than salmon. They’ve also got more B-12, protein, calcium, and iron. The extra iron can help ward off hair loss. The B-12 can help with itchy eczema, and omega-3s are known to ease everything from adult acne to dandruff. And when living at high altitudes in cities such as Denver, these natural moisturizing agents can be a life-saver.
Additionally, sardines deliver: Selenium, Phosphorus, Iron, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc, and a large dosage of Vitamin-D!
Even the New York Times is sharing sardine cooking ideas:
At Denver’s Lasair Aesthetic Health, we believe it is important to treat our bodies well both on the inside and out. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, give your skin, hair, and nails a natural glow by picking up a few cans of sardines at your local grocery store today!
