Shrimp is high in omega-3s, calcium, iodine and protein! It has high cholesterol but still considered healthy for the circulatory system since it does’t have high levels of saturated fat.

When purchasing shrimp try to go for “wild caught”, dry and fresh. When purchase in a bag, ingredients should say “shrimp” and that is all! If it contains ingredients such as Sodium Tripolyphospate “STPP”, suggestion is to go for the one that doesn’t contain this. STPP is a chemical/toxin preservative that is in cleaning products and used as a food preservative! May cause skin irritation and internal inflammation.
