New York’s seafood industry is thriving in part thanks to its seafood: Seawseed, of course, but also the way it’s grown in the United States.
For decades, it’s been used as a high-protein, low-fat, low glycemic (high in omega-3s) option to promote weight loss, and it’s now making a comeback as an ingredient in processed foods.
So what’s driving the demand for this seafood?
The first part: Seafood is a source of omega-6 fatty acids (which are necessary for the body’s health and have been shown to reduce cholesterol and protect against heart disease and cancer).
Omega-6 fats are also good for the brain, and researchers have been looking at ways to use them in a healthy way.
And seaweed is one of the best sources for them: It’s packed with selenium, which has a range of health benefits, including antioxidant properties.
“There’s a lot of data out there that shows that selenite has a number of health advantages, and we know that selneses antioxidants are very important,” says Scott M. Anderson, Ph.
D., director of the Center for Sustainable Seafoods at the University of Florida.
That means the more antioxidants you have in your diet, the more omega-8 you get.
That’s important, because omega-4s are also essential for the development of the brain and heart.
In fact, a 2011 study found that a high intake of omega 6s can prevent Alzheimer’s disease in people with high levels of the protein.
Omega-4 fats, on the other hand, are not so good for your brain.
But a 2009 study found omega-5s could improve cognitive function and reduce inflammation in people who had elevated levels of omega 3s in their diet.
Omega 3s, too, can be a problem.
A 2008 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that high intakes of omega 5s were associated with higher blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, but omega 3 intakes were not.
And a 2009 review of randomized clinical trials concluded that omega 3 supplements did not improve memory, mood or cognitive function.
Omega 6s, meanwhile, are another key benefit: They can lower your risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases associated with inflammation, which could be important for a range in terms of improving your health.
Seawoods are an excellent source of the nutrients omega-7s and omega-12s.
“The omega-9s are good for people with heart disease,” says Anderson.
“We’ve got very good evidence that those omega-14s and the omega-16s are protective against those kinds of diseases.”
Seawed has been used for millennia, but now it’s becoming popular in Western countries as a whole.
There are now roughly 5 billion pounds of it in the world, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
And it’s also being exported to Asia.
“When we started to see the uptake of seaweeds in the US in the ’90s, it was really quite amazing,” says Mimi Jaffe, the executive director of The Sustainable Seafeed Alliance.
The demand for the seafood grew rapidly in the 2000s, but it wasn’t until 2010 that demand exploded.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” says Jaffe.
“Demand is exploding and it is growing at an exponential rate.
People are really excited about the seaweed because it’s really the ultimate healthy food.”
Here’s what you need to know about the health benefits of eating seaweed.
Omega 7, Omega 12: Omega 7 and omega 12 fats are crucial for brain function, according a 2009 report from the National Institutes of Health.
They also increase blood pressure, improve cognitive functions and help to protect against oxidative stress.
Omega 8: Omega 8 fats are beneficial for cardiovascular health and reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease.
They are also very good for brain health.
Omega 9: Omega 9 fats are particularly important for healthy gut flora.
They help to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism and reduce oxidative stress and cancer risk.
Omega 10: Omega 10 fats are another important source of selenites antioxidants.
A 2011 review of clinical trials found that omega 10 supplements improved memory and mood, improved brain function and reduced inflammation.
Omega 11: Omega 11s are particularly useful for reducing inflammation, improving metabolism and reducing oxidative stress, as well as lowering inflammation and cancer risks.
Omega 12 (or E-8): Omega 12 is a major omega-source that is particularly important because it can increase blood flow to the brain.
It’s also important for maintaining blood pressure.
Omega 14: Omega 14s are another major omega source that is especially important because they help to regulate inflammation, oxidative stress (high oxidative levels) and heart disease risk.
In addition, omega 14 is particularly beneficial
