Yeah but what is Sushi?

This probably doesn’t need to be written here, but Sushi is a part of the Japanese and Asian cuisine. Sushi originated a long time ago but in quite a different style to what we eat today. It was originally a method of preserving fresh raw meat or fish to be carried out into the colder months. The fish was cured and left for fermentation covered with rice for later eating. The fish was then eaten later and the rise discarded.

Here is some more information on the health benefits of Sushi:

  • Rich source of antioxidants:We all need a good source of antioxidants, it helps prevent any oxidative damage to the skin and the DNA of cells. Antioxidants are a good way of protecting against this. Why not use Sushi to achieve this? It’s delicious!
  • Weight Management:
    Everybody likes to have the chance to eat out at restaurants etc, Sushi is a good means of being able to eat out with your friends and maintain a social life while still looking after your waistline. Sushi in moderation is great for you and saves you having to be the person ordering a salad for dinner when out with friends.
  • Hypothyroidism Prevention:
    It is a great source of iodine and there is scientific evidence that claims that iodine is a great way to help balance out the thyroid hormones. Thus the iodine present in sushi can be very beneficial for anyone having any troubles with hypothyroidism.
  • Skin Care: Omega 3 which is found in seafood has been linked to helping your skin look and feel radient. Along with good nutrition, it’s also important to get a regular skin cancer check at your local doctors.
