Experience the rich, natural source of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids from Fish For Sushi’s Super Frozen tuna
Posted: May 24 2016
There’s a lot to love about sushi. Naturally, it’s deelish. Additionally, it’s loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, including two crucial ones -- eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Our bodies need these fatty acids not only to function, but for the powerful health benefits they deliver.
Excuse me while I get a bit scientific here. Both EPA and DHA are fundamental building blocks of the central nervous system, and unlike other vital nutrients, like Vitamin D for example, our bodies cannot manufacture them naturally. We must consume Omega-3 fatty acids so that our bodies can convert them into DHA and EPA.
Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, play a critical role in heart health, and are believed to help curb joint pain in people with rheumatoid arthritis, alleviate symptoms of depression, help visual and neurological development in infants, lower inflammation and improve lung function, which helps asthma patients, reduce symptoms of ADHD, may help protect against Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging.
The modern diet has systematically replaced many of the Omega-3s that our evolutionary ancestors ate with Omega-6s from oils like Canola oil that are used in abundance in modern diets.
The brain, and the sheaths around the nerves are no longer made up of the proper fats, since our bodies use Omega-6s in place of Omega-3s while we grow and develop, so we need to replace them. Studies show that the consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids has a beneficial effect on brain development and the cardiovascular system. DHA has been proven to increase the body’s level of HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein—the “good” cholesterol) while lowering levels of LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein—the “bad” cholesterol).
Consuming Omega-3s has also been shown to increase the particle size of the LDL, also proven to boost cardiovascular health. And there’s more.
Consuming Omega-3 fatty acids has been linked with helping the body maintain healthy blood sugar levels, especially important for diabetics (and preventing diabetes). Essentially, by incorporating this much needed type of fat back into our diet, we can potentially ward off many of the health problems that have begun to plague us, presumably due to the effects of our modern diet lacking in this important nutrient.
In nature, Omega-3 fatty acids move up the food chain, manufactured by algae and accumulate in high concentrations in fish like tuna and salmon. By eating sushi, the raw portion of fish has more Omega-3 fat than its cooked counterpart. In fact, cooking fats can result in a change in their properties, and even “good” fats can become “bad” fats when exposed to high heat. So sushi is the delivery method of choice for the ultimate Omega-3 infusion.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of today’s fish supply is heavily tainted with industrial toxins and pollutants, such as heavy metals, PCBs, and radioactive poisons, and they’re not generally safe to eat.
Fortunately, Fish For Sushi’s tuna is all natural, with no preservatives, and always completely free of carbon monoxide. Caught by specialized long-line fishermen only, far out on the high seas, our freshly caught, sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna is frozen to a core ultra low temperature (ULT) of -76ºF, the Eutectic Point or EP, right on the boat. The entire process is complete within 10 - 20 hours out of the water, with no opportunity for the contamination that most seafood processing plants are susceptible to.
The entire process begins on the tuna boat and is complete within 10 - 20 hours out of the water, providing no opportunity for the contamination to which most seafood processing plants are susceptible.
Fish For Sushi’s super freezing process borrows from the same process used in the medical industry by blood banks, fertility clinics and labs worldwide, which stops the natural decay that begins when the fish is caught. Our freshly caught tuna is quickly gilled, cleaned, hermetically sealed and immediately put into super freezers right on the boat, without any further processing between catch and your kitchen. The super freezing process was discovered by the medical industry in the late 1960s, and 80 percent of Japan’s freshly caught tuna is super frozen.
Once it arrives at your door and you defrost it, Fish For Sushi’s sashimi-grade tuna revives to exactly the moment it was frozen.
From catch to kitchen, Fish For Sushi delivers top quality tuna that is super frozen and transported at the precise right temperature to ensure freshness and safety. The result is fresh, delicious tuna that's reflected in the vibrant, deep red color the tuna regains upon defrosting - the natural color of freshly caught tuna, complete with all the benefits of natural Omega-3s.
