A few benefits of Tilapia
- Cancer Fighting – Selenium, found in Tilapia can fight free radical activity which is dangerous for your health. Therefore, it fights oxidative stress in your body. Like antioxidants, selenium can destroy cancerous cells as well. Although you can take selenium in a supplement, it is best to consume this awesome nutrient from a natural source like tilapia.
- Weight Loss- Over-weight individuals can add tilapia into their diet without giving it a second thought. The fish merely has 36% calories and zero fats. It’s also a great source to obtain proteins which you need to strengthen muscles. Apart from this, other nutrients in Tilapia will keep your body energized. Be careful, however, avoid farm raised catfish. Wild caught tilapia is much leaner than farm raised.
- Immune System- Your immune system protects your body from diseases so, a strong immunity is a gift for your health. You need plenty of nutrients to assist your immune system. Nutrients in Tilapia function to strengthen your immune system when you eat the fish on a regular basis.
