Packed full of vitamins and minerals, Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod is bursting with health benefits. A low-energy source of protein (26g protein in one 150g serve), the versatile white-fleshed fish is best known for being a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats – a type of fat our bodies can’t produce. That is why it is important we get these essential fats from our diet. There is compelling evidence consuming a diet containing omega-3 fatty acids will have the following impacts:
Better heart health
Omega 3 fatty acids thin the blood and assist in controlling elevated blood pressure.
Lower triglyceride levels
Omega 3 fatty acids support the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Decreased risk of some cancers
Increased consumption of omega-3 is associated with decreased risk of some cancers, including colorectal and renal cancer.
Further, some evidence suggests omega-3 fatty acids can assist in preventing cognitive decline associated with ageing, and can help in delivering mental health benefits.
