Fish a superfood?

Fish are extremely nourishing as they are low in fat, increases and repairs your lean muscle mass due to the amino acids content.
Fish is low in calories as it has no carbohydrates at all so if you are keen to lose weight quickly, you should eat this rather than other kinds of meat. Fish is an irreplaceable element of nutrition as it is full of vitamins and minerals. It also contains a large number of Omega 3 fatty acids which raise levels of the brain chemical serotonin which in turn helps to ease depression.
Fish is a super-food which can slim down your body quickly, help you to be healthy, help protect against many diseases.
