Health Benefits of Sardines

Health Benefits of Sardines

One of my all-time favorite healthy foods is definitely sardines.  This was certainly an acquired taste and I had to learn the hard way that some brands are absolutely disgusting and others taste great.  The picture above shows the three brands of sardines I eat the most.

Why are sardines so great?

Sardines are nutritional powerhouses containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, high-quality protein, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, folate, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B5, niacin, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, choline, CoQ10, zinc and iron. They’re really stacked to the gills!

Sardines are also extremely low in mercury so you don’t have to worry about toxic metals like from other types of fish.

Sardines are perfect if you are following a ketogenic diet, paleo diet, low carb diet, modified vegetarian diet or just want to add a lot of nutrition to your diet.  If you are following a ketogenic diet then go for the sardines packed in olive oil for extra fat. Read more

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Glutathione

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Glutathione

As a result, people lose that extra antioxidant that they have in their body to really help with their auto immunity. Now, chronic infections like Epstein-Barr virus can also contribute to the reduction in glutathione levels. Read more
