It is no secret that eating well, exercising regularly, and aiming for a balanced lifestyle benefits both for our minds and bodies. Certain foods and the nutrients that they contain can even help fight off diseases. From our weight, body image, heart, and blood pressure, to an improved mind, healthier skin and more energy – the impact of the food we eat has many benefits.
So, what foods and which nutrients do you need to include on your next shopping list?
Who loves nothing more than a fishing trip with friends when the weather starts to warm up? Or for some of us, quick visit to the fish markets or supermarket helps to ensure that we have a delicious piece of salmon or tuna for dinner. Whilst being a treat for the tastebuds, the oils in fish also offer additional health benefits; one of these, according to the University of Manchester, is to help prevent skin cancer. Results from a study performed by the University suggest that Omega 3 fish oils improve immunity to sunlight. Fatty fish – including trout, salmon and tuna – contain large quantities of omega-3 fatty acids. So if you’re unsure what to do for dinner tonight, why not cook some salmon with veggies for a healthy, delicious meal that could also be helping your skin!
