When you go to one of the waterfront restaurants in Orange Beach, AL, such as Tacky Jacks, you can, of course expect various fish and seafood dishes on the menu. Whether you live around the area or are just on vacation, not only will you find eating fish at a waterfront restaurant enjoyable, you can also get its many health benefits.


Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Fish is known to be rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids benefit the heart, and, according to the American Heart Association, eating just one or two servings of fish per week could significantly reduce your risk of developing heart disease and other heart-related conditions. Omega 3 fatty acids reduce the amount of inflammation throughout the body, which also reduces the chances of inflammation of the veins in the heart. This causes blood to pump more efficiently throughout the body, reducing the chances of clotting. This, in turn, leads to healthier veins, which results in lower blood pressure and more regular heart beats.

Reduced Risk of Alzheimer's

According to a new study conducted by the Radiological Society of North America, eating fish may help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's later on in life. Fish helps preserve gray matter neurons that are linked to memory and cognition. The study showed that people who ate fish tended to have larger brain cells in the parts of the brain where memory and cognition are processed.

Healthier Skin and Hair

The nutrients in fish can also help improve the appearance of your skin and hair. When you're trying to maintain a low fat diet, one of the major drawbacks is that you won't be getting the healthy fat that you need for shiny hair and glowing skin. The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish, though, ensure that you get the fatty nutrients you need without all the "bad" types of fat.

Vitamin D

Your body needs Vitamin D, and if you can't always get it from the sun, then you could get it from a healthy dose of fish. Fish is a great sunless source of Vitamin D that can help ward off disease and promote bone health. Just one three-ounce serving of salmon provides you with  three-fourths of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin D.

The finest restaurants in Orange Beach serve only the freshest catch, which not only enhances the health benefits of fish dishes, but also their flavor.
