Some Cheap Sources of Protein May Be Healthy

By Tom Herrin

Everything that can help improve the health of a diet is not expensive.  Many times, when people are trying to make a diet better, they feel that they need to spend money on all kinds of packaged items or special types of food.  Some kinds of food are simply good for people if they will just make the effort to include it in their diet.  One of those foods that can pay off in a big way is fish.  Including it in the diet on a regular basis can produce results.  It has long been known that those who eat fish regularly generally have better health than those who do not.

It May Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease and Stroke

In this country, there is a high number of people who suffer from heart disease and stroke.  It is noticeable that in places where people consume more fish, they often have fewer problems in this area.  A study of over 40,000 men who ate fish at least once per week, found they had a 15 percent less risk of heart disease.  It is generally believed that much of this may be attributable to the omega-3 fatty acids.

It May Add Grey Matter to the Brain

People who eat more fish can increase the grey matter, which is responsible for memory and processing information.  People who suffer from some kinds of dementia are known to have a shrinking of grey matter in the brain.  According so some studies, people who eat fish every week have more grey matter in the brain centers that control emotion and memory.  Everyone who has seen people who suffer from loss of these functions is aware of how devastating it can be.

It Is a Good Source of Vitamin D

A large number of people are deficient in Vitamin D.  It is believed this number is more than 40 percent of the population.  Fish is one of the best sources of this important vitamin.  Especially for those who do not get much sun, fish may be their best source.  It is amazing to me just how much impact that vitamin deficiencies can have on health.  If nothing else, I try to eat some canned fish, such as tuna, salmon, or sardines, a couple of times a week.  The price is minimal but the benefits can be big.  Try adding some to your diet and see the results yourself.
