The Benefits of Shellfish Living

Do you like shellfish? Do you like crab, shrimp, scallops, oysters, and lobster? You can find all of these at Flo Japanese Restaurant in Bellevue! We put them in sushi, we chop them into cakes, we bread them, we fry them, and we dunk them in soups. We do it all, because not only is shellfish delicious, but it’s also a healthy part of any diet.

Shellfish isn’t just a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Like any other animal harvested from the ocean, our hard-shelled friends can indeed offer all of the rich benefits of these valuable fats, but these are not the main event. Shellfish are all also rich in chromium and selenium, both of which have a powerful impact on your body. Chromium helps insulin to metabolize sugar, making it a highly recommended nutrient for diabetics or people at risk of diabetes. Selenium is an antioxidant that battles a lot of deadly carcinogens, like cadmium, arsenic, and even mercury. Keep shellfish in your diet, and keep cancer out!
