The Health Benefits of Lobster

The Health Benefits of Lobster

Lobsters, the crustaceans known as Homarus Nephrops (north Atlantic subspecies), have only in recent history been known as a delicacy. In the early 20th century Lobsters were primarily fed to poor people and prisoners. In one example, indentured servants in a New England town successfully sued their owners to create a “only 3 lobster meals per week” rule. We should be so lucky!

In addition to being delicious, lobster also boasts many nutritional benefits including protecting heart health, decreasing inflammation, boosting brain function, promoting growth, speeding healing, and increasing energy. In addition, lobsters are a great place to get many essential vitamins and minerals.

So, without further adieu, here are some important health benefits:

Cholesterol Balance:

The high concentration of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids can help your cholesterol balance, with moderate lobster consumption.

Brain Function:

Lobster features a number of unique minerals and vitamins including B12, which is directly linked with maintaining nerve integrity and the maintenance of your nervous system. Lobster is also a very good source of choline, a water-soluble nutrient that can increase the production of neurotransmitters.

Protein Boost:

Lobster features high protein content which is important for the growth and repair of cells, tissues, bones, and organs. Unused protein is stored or later use as energy!

Reduce Inflammation:

The protein and “good” fat content found in lobster can result in decreased inflammation of the joints. This can be a part of providing relief for issues ranging from arthritic conditions to cardiovascular and circulatory health.

Happy Thyroid:

Lobster possesses selenium, a trace element, which helps stimulate the activity of thyroid glands. Selenium protects against free radicals during metabolism too, which makes lobster a great food to eat if you’re trying to lose some pounds.

We’re serving live Maine lobster through the end of February. Have you ever wondered why “live” lobster is so important? One reason is that crustaceans like the lobster start to decay very rapidly after dying, so to ensure the best quality lobster experience, lobsters are kept alive as long as possible before being prepared.

So, get in soon and enjoy some lobster. It’ll treat you right!
