Benefits of Shrimp

Not only is shrimp very low in calories and rich in protein, but they are also full of vitamins, minerals, and two very important antioxidants- selenium and astaxanthin. 

Selenium reduces free radical damage, fights oxidative stress, has anti-cancer abilities, boosts immunity, improves blood flow, lowers heart disease risk, regulates thyroid function, boosts fertility, and has been shown to reduce asthma symptoms!

Astaxanthin has anti-inflammatory properties which aid in joint repair, block ultraviolet rays promoting skin health, and even provide humans with increased strength and improved recovery after exercise. 

Why not add more shrimp to your diet?
