We know you’ve probably heard that sushi is one of the healthiest foods you can consume. Since sushi is such a popular menu item, we thought it might be worthwhile to discover why. Here’s what we found.
Why Sushi Makes You Healthy
It’s one of the best foods for your heart.
Especially when your sushi comes from clean waters and is consumed raw, this is one of the healthiest foods in existence. That’s because sushi contributes lots of high-density lipoproteins (HDLs), the healthy cholesterol, without all the unhealthy low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). If you consult our nutritional table, you’ll see that many of our meats/fishes contain cholesterol, which is a good thing because your heart cannot function without HDLs. Don’t eschew all sources of cholesterol. Come to Island Fin Poke for some HDL-rich sushi in one of our freshly prepared Poke Bowls.
You can greatly improve hormone levels by eating more of it.
Many sushi dishes come in a seaweed wrapping, fortified in iodine. When you consume iodine at safe levels, you’ll experience the benefit of greater hormone regulation, something that helps your body function and improve your mood.
Sushi plays a role in abating cancer.
Many of our sauces and marinades for sushi, particularly the wasabi, help you stave off cancer. The antioxidative properties prevent mitochondrial damage, which is the main catalyst behind cancerous growth. This might explain why many sea-faring cultures, such as the Okinawans, can live so long, rarely experiencing illnesses like cancer and atherosclerosis. They eat lots of sushi, and it pays off huge healthy dividends.
It can also strengthen your immune system and help you build muscle.
Are you looking for an effective way to add muscle without “bulking” with junk food? Then sushi is for you as well. It’s packed with lean protein, so you no longer need to rely on unhealthy carbs or processed foods to obtain enough calories to build muscle. Sushi is the way to grow muscle the clean way. It’s also a major contributor to immune health. Wasabi and ginger are great antibacterial solutions that cleanse your digestive tract. Sushi boasts such an awesome nutritional one-two-punch of protein and immune-system proliferation.
