Whether you are trying to become a Dad, are already a Dad, or even just looking out for your own Dad’s health - seafood plays a major role in men’s health.
1. A healthy heart leads to healthy blood flow... ya know? ❤️
One of every four male deaths in the US is from heart disease; and while talking about heart health may not be fun and exciting, sex sure is! Erectile dysfunction is strongly linked to heart disease and can be caused by a dysfunction in the lining of the blood vessels. (Did you know that over 30% of men between 40-70 experience ED?) This dysfunction can cause inadequate blood supply to the heart and impaired blood flow to the nether regions, aiding in the development of atherosclerosis. Bad. Eating omega-3 rich fish and seafood has proven effective in reducing cardiovascular inflammation, improving blood cholesterol, and preventing heart disease. Aim for king salmon or sablefish twice a week to get therapeutic benefits.
2. Work with the numbers. 📈
A Harvard School of Public Health study showed that men who ate more whitefish like cod and halibut had better sperm quality than those that didn’t, and those that ate more fatty fish like salmon, had higher sperm counts. Swap out some bacon and pepperoni for some halibut tacos and grilled salmon guys - it increases your chances!
3. Put out the inflammation fire. 🔥
Chronic inflammation is now linked to almost every awful disease state you can think of, including cancers, heart disease, Alzheimers, Parkinson's, autoimmune disorders and more. The good news is that one of the best fire extinguishers to use is omega-3 fatty acids. So many mechanisms involved in regulating inflammation in our body need omega-3 fatty acids. If we can pour omega-3s over the hot fire of inflammation, we’d have a lot more control over our health and lifespan.
