Oven-Baked Sea Bass

Eating sea bass helps reduce risks of cardiovascular disorders. Thanks to the abundant quantity of omega 3 essential fatty acids, the fish improves the function of the heart, arteries and veins, and other parts that make up the cardiovascular system of the body. These essential fatty acids help in lowering the 'bad' LDL cholesterol, and increasing the 'good' HDL cholesterol levels in the body. It is amazing to know that including merely two servings of fish in the diet per week, can reduce instances of death from heart diseases, by 1/3.

Sea bass also helps lowering blood pressure. People with regular intake of sea bass fish in their diet, show significant reduction in blood pressure levels.

Macular degeneration is known to be one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. Merely two servings of this fish and other kinds of fish for that matter, can cause a 50% reduction in the risks of developing this disorder. Apart from this, fish and fish oil have always been popular for improving vision in children and adults.

Sea bass fish oil causes a reduction in the accumulation of fat in the body thus, making way for an effective weight loss.

Another omega-3 fish oil benefit is that it offers protection against cancer of the colon, breast and prostate.

Other health benefits of sea bass include improving brain function, dealing with symptoms of inflammation, helping in slowing down aging symptoms, also helping in uplifting mood thus, it acts as a natural antidepressant.
