This month starts the controlled drift net fishing of sardines, on the North coast of Spain, Galicia.
It has a low ecological and environmental impact, because sardines are close to the bottom of the food chain, feeding on plankton. And sardines are one of the least contaminated sources of fish!
Healthy for you!
Sardines are very rich in protein, calcium (protecting bone and teeth health) and copper (vital to the generation of energy from carbohydrates inside of cells)
Reduce inflammation and risk of disease: sardines are an excellent source of EPA and DHA, which are two fatty acids that the body uses to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is at the root of most diseases. Sardines fats decreases skin inflammation and give you a healthy glow (play a big role in skin cells)
Provide many essential vitamins (high in B12 and D) and minerals (very high in selenium, helpful in neutralizing free radicals and protecting the organs from damage) so it has antioxidant properties.
The high omega-3 fatty acid content (such as EPA and DHA) play a major role in controlling heart disease, breaks down bad cholesterol in the body, reduces blood pressure (prevents blood clots) and helps combat anxiety and depression (mood disorders)
Controls blood sugar levels: both the high protein and healthy fat content work to slow down the absorption of sugar into the blood. It reduces insulin resistance, one of the major factors to look for in diabetes.
It has anti-cancer properties: the intake of calcium and vitamin D can be very helpful in preventing certain types of cancer.
Sardine oil can help in building up the immune system by increasing the count of immune cells.
It reduces risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) which results in loss of vision.
It promotes healthy brain function. Fish oil and healthy fats are known to be good “brain food.” This makes sense when you consider that 60% of the brain is made up of fat.
