Swordfish Nutrition Benefits

Swordfish is a great choice to add to your family because of its plentiful nutritional benefits. It provides a good source of selenium, which provides important heart and cancer-fighting benefits. It's protein rich and also loaded with magnesium, selenium and Omega-3. Plus, it's low in calories and fats. Swordfish is also an ethical choice because the fish doesn't have to be caught with mercury or other harmful chemicals.

For each serving, you should take about 2 ounces with a little extra to cover the taste. You can also add additional vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower for a helping but be sure not to overload the dish with vegetables or else the flavor will be dull. Swordfish also provides good amounts of protein, Vitamin A and Vitamin B12. All of these nutritional benefits and only a little fat make this a healthy choice especially if you are watching your cholesterol intake.

Because this fish has a lot of protein, you can count all of the calories even though the nutrition facts say the food contains more protein than meat. The fats in this fish are unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats can be beneficial to your health because they help lower LDL cholesterol levels and raise HDL cholesterol levels, which is kind of a good thing. Keep in mind that the fats in this fish are unsaturated fats so eating too much of them may not be good for you. With this said, if you're going to have swordfish it's okay to have a little bit of it.
