fish-1190064_1920Caviar is a decadent treat that packs a mean punch of protein and healthy fats in a small package. Sourced from Beluga, Stertlet, Ossetra, and Sevruga sturgeon, these small, black round eggs are highly nutritional and worth consuming often. Lombardi’s Seafood Market brings the seafood Orlando wants, as fresh as possible, to satisfy the taste buds of the entire city. Let’s see why caviar is always a priority for us!

Just a small portion, the size of a tablespoon, has the entire recommended daily amount of omega-3 fatty acids your body needs to maintain a healthy heart. These highly unsaturated fatty acids have been shown to help reduce blood clots in the arteries and thus prevent hardening of these important vessels, which makes heart attacks and strokes a lesser possibility.

Over half of the recommended daily value for Vitamin B12 can be found in this same spoonful of caviar. It’s a vital vitamin that helps your body make red blood cells and process fatty acids. Given that it is water soluble, this vitamin leaves your body quite quickly and therefore must be consumed daily to maintain appropriate levels in the blood.

Another important trace mineral is selenium, which is an antioxidant that, coupled with Vitamin E, helps protect your cells from damage due to compounds in the body. This fights against cancer and heart disease by boosting the immune system and promoting cell growth.

The only downside to caviar is the amount of dietary cholesterol it has, which should be kept at a minimum according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A tablespoon contains close to a third of the dietary cholesterol your body needs in a day. Therefore, it is to be consumed in moderation.

As you can see, the benefits of such a delicious spread are quite numerous, you simply have to watch how much of it you eat.
