Fish Protein: Nature’s Complete Essential Nutrient for Runners and Athletes
Posted: Aug 18 2014
You’d be hard-pressed to find an athlete or runner who doesn’t depend on a daily intake of protein to enhance their physical performance. Protein-based foods offer a robust dietary staple for everyone, particularly runner/athletes—nature guarantees it. If you’re looking to tap the richest, most complete storehouse of nutritional protein, look no further than the healing food pyramid’s number one source—seafood.
Thanks to FishForSushi.com, getting your fill of protein’s essential nutrients has never been simpler, or more savory.
An essential nutrient responsible for supporting a range of activities in the body, protein is found naturally in every cell in the body. About 17 percent of the body’s lean tissue is made up of protein, playing a critical role in cell repair, blood clotting, hydration, and enzyme and hormone production.
And while dietary protein benefits everyone, athletes and runners know that without their daily intake, the ability to build and maintain strong, lean muscles, heal injured tissue and store energy crucial to endurance, they’d be sidelined in no time. This same rule applies to non-competitive athletes looking to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
Proteins derived from cooked and raw fish are high in nutrients and low in saturated fat, making sushi a perfect choice for amateur and professional sportsmen and women. Not only does sushi offer enough variety to keep mealtime interesting and satisfying day after day, it just so happens to be delish. The high concentration of nutrient-rich oils found in sushi is an added bonus, since the anti-oxidant qualities of omega-3 fatty acids help support the demands of fat burning exercise on your cardiovascular system.
Fish and seafood are naturally brimming not only with protein and omega-3s, but also with Vitamins B6 and B12, selenium, niacin, phosphorous and magnesium. But in the process of taking optimal care of your body, you’ll find plenty of culinary heaven in the process.
FishForSushi.com delivers the highest quality cuts of seafood, from sashimi (think fresh tuna , salmon, butterfly shrimp and scollop ) cleaned and deboned to perfection, to the farmed Scottish Salmon Sashimi often used in sushi or as sashimi. Like all of our choice cuts of fish and seafood, our premium sushi grade fish are all natural, antibiotic-free and sustainably farmed.
Salmon contains high concentrations of EPA and DHA omega-3 fats with anti-oxidant properties, as well as fat-soluble antioxidant Vitamin E that helps boost immune function and diminishes the risk of developing heart disease. Smoked, grilled, baked or incorporated into sushi, salmon is a remarkably versatile and satisfying culinary treat.
Our moist, deep red premium sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna and our plump, succulent bigeye tuna are favorites among sashimi connoisseurs throughout North America. Also known as “Ahi” in Hawaii and harvested from the deep, cool waters of the Pacific Ocean, both varieties of tuna are stored at temperature of minus 76 degrees Fahrenheit within an hour of catch from a sustainable fishery.
Athletes and runners love bigeye tuna for its delicious and healthy abundance of extra lean protein. Like yellowfin , bigeye tuna delivers high concentrations of EPA and DHA omega-3 fats that help stave off injuries and aid in muscle recovery.
