Healthy Benefits

It’s well known that lake fish is good for you, for a number of great reasons. Fish and seafood (e.g. salmon, shrimp, pickerel and whitefish) are natural sources of lean protein and critical nutrients, vitamins and minerals, including iron and zinc, and vitamins A, B and D.

Fish is particularly valuable (versus many other healthy foods and other proteins) in its delivery of two healthy omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Research shows these omega-3 fatty acids promote good health and may reduce your risk of chronic disease. Since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fatty acids, it’s important to regularly include them in our diets.

Studies show omega-3 fatty acids provide a number of health benefits:

  • Help maintain cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting and vessel constriction
  • Are important for prenatal and postnatal neurological development
  • May reduce tissue inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
  • May play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and halting mental decline in older people
  • Improve arthritis and joint pain
  • Decrease the risk for certain cancers
  • Reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease

Improve your eating habits by including healthy lake fish options in your diet. Eating lake fish just twice a week (4 ounces per serving) is a healthy, delicious way to lead a healthier life.

Here are some tasty ways to get two or three healthy servings of lake fish per week:

  • Sample a variety of lake fish. Purepac offers a wide range of healthy lake fish options, including all-natural fillets, walleye and yellow lake perch fillets.
  • Serve healthy portion sizes. Purepac lake fish fillets are freshly caught, individually quick frozen and expertly handled, giving you a healthy lake fish meal option.
  • Change up your regular menu routine. Instead of having a lunch-time sandwich, choose a delicious, protein-packed, lake fish fillet with natural omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Enjoy restaurant favourites at home. Use your favourite spices, batter, breading or seasoning to make an affordable, restaurant-quality meal everyone will enjoy.
