Anchovies are great food that have wonderful health benefits including being full of Vitamin A which is great for your hair, nails, skin, boosts your immune system, keeps your eyes healthy, helps prevent viral infections, strokes, respiratory infections, and acne.
About 100 grams of Anchovies gives you almost 50,000 units of Vitamin A.
And they are full of great B vitamins that help prevent digestive, skin, and nerve problems latter… and they also contain vitamins D and E.
That same serving of Anchovies give you 36 mcg of selenium which helps prevent cardiovascular disease, hardening of the arteries, and prevent prostate cancer, other types of cancer.
One serving of Anchovies gives you almost 150 mgs of bioavailable calcium that is great for preventing osteoporosis and great for healthy teeth too.
Once serving of Anchovies gives you almost 400 mgs of potassium, which helps relax, sooth, and prevent muscles cramps… and works to keep your heart beating correctly.
Anchovies lower your blood pressure and help to prevent cardiovascular disease because they are full of Omega 3 oils.
They are also low in heavy metals like mercury… because they are small fish that are low on the food chain.
Plus Anchovies are high in protein and low in calories.
Put them on pizza, put them in salads, add them to just about anything—they are great!
