A healthy appetite for Murray cod

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.

The Heart Foundation recommends 2–3 serves of fish per week.

With its mild taste and firm texture, cooking with Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod is the perfect way to incorporate omega-3s into our diet each week.
