Shrimp Health Benefits
Shrimp is one of the leanest protein options around, providing a whopping 15 grams of protein for only 80 calories (4 ounce serving), and only 1 gram of fat. Plus it is a source of many key nutrients including:
- Zinc: 9% of the daily value
- Selenium: 48% of the daily value
- Vitamin B12: 21% of the daily value
- Niacin: 11% of the daily value
Shrimp is also a notable source of Iodine, an important component of your thyroid which helps regulate metabolism (1). And even more impressive, its pink hue is due to an phytochemical called astaxanthin - an antioxidant that has been linked to healthy skin and may have anti-aging properties (2,3).
Tip: you can also get astaxanthin from salmon!
