You probably never thought of canned fish as a home remedy, but thatís a mindset we hope to change. Eating fish just a few times a week will make your heart stronger and healthieróand thatís only one of the considerable health benefits youíll gain as a fish eater. Discover the virtues of canned fish, and a sharper memory, a happier mood, and potentially, a longer, healthier life will be as close as your can opener.

 

 

 

whatís in it?
Certain kinds of canned fish, especially salmon, sardines, herring, and, to a lesser extent, tuna, are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. These help your body manufacture compounds called series 3 prostaglandins, which are helpful hormone-like substances that make platelets less sticky, reduce inflammation, and improve blood flow.

 

what science says
Sonic studies suggest that people who eat omega-3--rich fish are less likely to suffer from a decline in age-related thinking skills and memory. Other studies link low levels of omega to higher rates of depression.
 

In the landmark, 25-plus-year-old Physiciansí Health Study, which is still producing data about health, the men who ate fish at least once a week were 52 percent less likely to die of a heart attack than men who ate fish once a month or less. Itís not yet known whether the effect is due to one factor or many, but evidence so far points to
the ability of omega-3s to decrease the stickiness of blood platelets, making it less likely that they will clump together to form dots. They also increase the flexibility of red blood cells, enabling them to pass more readily through tiny vessels, reduce inflammation of the artery walls, and lower levels of triglycerides in your blood.
 

A study of more than 43,000 men, published in 2003, showed that men who ate about 3 to 5 ounces (85ó140 g)
of fish one to three times a month were 43 percent less likely to have an ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke, which is caused by blood clots.

 

BUYER'S tip

High levels of mercury are a concern for fish eaters. In general, smaller-sized fish like wild salmon and herring contain less mercury than large fish, like tuna. Of the canned tunas, choose light tuna, because itís lower in mercury than albacore. Some consumer groups recommend that pregnant women eat no more than 6 ounces (170 g) of light tuna every 4 days; every 10 days for albacore.

 

Wild-caught salmon has the lowest mercury content and the highest omega-3 levels; almost all canned salmon is wild caught. Pacific North west salmon is the best choice because of the purity of those waters.

 

good to know

A cup of tuna thatís canned in water is 179 calories. The same amount of tuna canned in oil is 289 calories. So if flavor isnít an issue, choose water-packed varieties. One suggested exception: tuna packed in olive oil is so delectable on salads, that except for a spritz of lemon, youíll need no other dressing. Enjoy this as an occasional treat, since oil packed tuna contains more mercury than water-packed.
 

Do keep an eye on your omega-3 intake, especially if youíre taking blood-thinning medications. More than 3 grams of omega-3 a day may increase your risk for bleeding.
