As far as its nutritional value is concerned, it helps our body to function properly, providing us with proteins, calcium and iron in optimum proportions for the weekly intake recommended by professionals. Likewise, its vitamin content is surprising for all the vitamins it contains, including A, C, D, E and B12, as well as favouring the correct development of the embryo and benefiting skin tissue, neutralising the free radicals responsible for skin ageing and even having an immediate lifting effect, depending on the concentration of these vitamins.
Properties of DHA acid
But if there is one nutrient that is more than present in fish roe, it is Omega 3. Its absence is associated with cardiovascular disease, hypertension, depression, diabetes, lack of development in the nervous and reproductive systems, as well as inflammatory disorders, such as Crohn’s disease.
This is due to the high levels of EPA and DHA, which stand for eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, respectively. Your daily dose should be between 500 and 1,000 milligrams. These acids contribute to the proper functioning of the heart, regulate blood pressure, contribute to cell regeneration (and thus to the functioning of the immune system) and improve sperm quality.
Delving into the specific benefits of DHA, it has been shown to improve the reading and behavioral performance of children with ADHD. This value is found in the brain in 30% and is directly related to memory and neuroprotection. It also promotes proper brain development in the foetus and infant, and helps to protect the brain capacity of the elderly.
Benefits of Omega 3 fatty acid
But what is omega 3 good for? In addition to the aforementioned brain function, it also has an impact on vision. Likewise, all omega-3 fatty acids reduce bad cholesterol or LDL and have an anti-inflammatory effect because they are polyunsaturated fats. This is, therefore, beneficial for the prevention of different diseases and for an adequate physical performance. In addition, due to its anticoagulant properties, it makes the blood circulation much more fluid and thus prevents clots and thrombi from forming in the veins.
Another benefit of Omega 3 is, according to Professor Angel Gil, to improve lung function and reduce asthma. Thus, its consumption improves the symptoms of children suffering from bronchial asthma and helps to reduce the symptoms of mild to moderate allergic asthma.It is not the only disease it helps to fight, as it also contributes to prevent different types of cancers, specifically prostate, colon and breast cancer, according to the study conducted by Dr. Francisco G. Muriana, Senior Scientist at the Institute of Fat (CSIC), in Seville.
As if that were not enough, among its properties it is worth mentioning its anti-inflammatory and autoimmune effects, which, in addition to helping to treat certain diseases, help to slow down aging. Omega-3 fatty acids exert effects on nutritional status, cognition, bone health, muscle tone and general health. According to several studies, ingestion in the right proportions can prolong human health and life expectancy by 2 to 6 years.
Some of the best choices for Omega 3 fish are salmon, sardines, Atlantic mackerel, cod, herring, lake trout and tuna canned in water. Therefore, our salmon roe is the one with the highest nutritional content, and with its consumption we will avoid having to implement its intake in our routine through prescribed supplements.
It is also recommended for pregnant women and children. We remind you that our salmon roe can be eaten by the youngest members of the family from 9 months of age thanks to its soft texture and thin membrane, which will easily explode in their mouth to fill it with flavour.
In short, our fish roe is a great ally for your health and for all the members of your household, thanks to all its nutritional values, but in particular for the Omega 3, which has such a positive impact on both the proper functioning of the body and the prevention of future illnesses.
