Mackerel is one of the most commonly consumed fish in the world. The high concentration of omega-3s, proteins and many micro- and macronutrients make this product extremely healthy. Katsuobushi in Japanese cuisine is very often a marvellous source of divine taste. Translated into Russian, this ingredient is nothing more than dried mackerel.
Its high nutritional value and low calorie content make mackerel an excellent food for dieters, athletes, and those looking to shed those extra pounds. Vitamin B12, present in large quantities in mackerel, is involved in the breakdown of fats, ensuring their proper absorption and excretion from the body. This is what prevents fat from accumulating in the body, being deposited where it is not needed: on the belly, thighs and buttocks.
Fish oil, according to scientists, strengthens the membranes of body cells, which protects them from the penetration of free radicals. It has already been proven that this slows down the development of many diseases and also prevents the formation of tumours.
