Health Benefits Of Fish

While beef, chicken and pork offer their own health benefits for the body, seafood offers nutrients that you might not get on a regular basis. You can purchase seafood from a grocery store or a restaurant that has taken in a fresh seafood delivery so that you get the best products available. Almost all types of fish are good for you, especially if you bake the seafood instead of opting for frying. There are high levels of protein in fish, which can give the body a little more energy while keeping the muscles healthy. While it might not sound ideal, fatty pieces of fish are actually healthier for the body instead of those that are lean. Fatty types of seafood have higher amounts of vitamin D, which is something that many people don’t get in the diet. They also have a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which people rarely get in the other items that they eat on a regular basis.

Eating seafood about two times a week can help to lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke. The omega-3 fatty acids help to keep the vessels in the heart working in the optimal condition. The acids also help with brain and eye development. Fish could increase the grey matter in the brain and help to prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Those who eat fish on a regular basis often experience a slower rate of the cognitive abilities of the brain. Those who eat fish could also see a decrease in depression and actually feel a bit happier compared to those who don’t eat seafood. Fish can also help those who have bipolar disorder because of the fatty acids in the food.

Fish consumption can help reduce the risk of diabetes in children and slow the progression of the disease in adults. It can help to lower the blood sugar levels and keep them maintained as long as someone eats fish on a regular basis, consuming a healthy blend of fish and other meats during the week instead of relying only on fruits and vegetables to make up the overall diet.

Quick Hang Out With The DJ

Went out last night after workout with a friend for a quick dinner at a friend’s new resto. I’m glad I came as I met new friends and discovered a cool new place to hang out in the coming days. We bumped into our friend who apparently is the place’s regular DJ.

Because we enjoyed his mix so much we ended up in one table catching up after his set. Talked about all his DJ stuff, the choice of music, the mood, the gadgets, and the mixers. Speaking of mixers, the dude is so ecstatic on having his own rane sixty two! A kick ass mixer with cues that actually work and unbelievable faders, practically has everything a modern DJ needs. I had to check it out myself because he was just so into it! True enough, rane sixty two is something a DJ shouldn’t miss!

So anyway, that was just a quick catching up and I am definitely looking forward to see him play with his new toy real soon!
