Health Benefits

Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Support

We don't usually think about seafood as a source of antioxidants, but shrimp features at least three unique antioxidants in its nutrient composition: the xanthophyll carotenoid called astaxanthin, and the minerals selenium and copper.

Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is the primary color pigment in many shrimp, and it helps provide their tissue with its red and orange shades. While many reddish-orange foods get their color from other carotenoids (or from flavonoids), shrimp are especially concentrated in this one particular type of carotenoid. (Astaxanthin often accounts for at least two-thirds of all carotenoids in shrimp.) It is possible for a 4-ounce serving of shrimp to contain 1-4 milligrams of astaxanthin. In animal studies, astaxanthin has been shown to provide antioxidant support to both the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. In addition, some animal studies have shown decreased risk of colon cancer to be associated with astaxanthin intake, as well as decreased risk of certain diabetes-related problems. Under natural conditions, shrimp get astaxanthin through their diet, by consuming smaller organisms that contain this carotenoid, including algae and zooplankton. When farmed, the astaxanthin content of shrimp depends on the composition of their feed. Both synthetic forms of astaxanthin and naturally occurring forms of astaxanthin have been used in shrimp farming, and the use of synthetic astaxanthin remains a topic of ongoing controversy. In general, when purchasing farmed shrimp, we believe that it makes sense to select shrimp that have consumed natural and plentiful amounts of astaxanthin from natural dietary sources including marine algae and zooplankton.

Selenium and Copper

In the world of antioxidants, few enzymes are more important in our body than glutathione peroxidase (GPO). GPO helps protect most of our body systems from unwanted damage by oxygen-containing molecules. It is critical in body systems like the lungs, where exposure to these molecules is especially high. GPO is an enzyme that cannot function without the mineral selenium.

At 56 micrograms in every 4 ounces, shrimp is an excellent source of this antioxidant mineral. Shrimp is not only rich in selenium; research studies show that the selenium found in shrimp can be well-absorbed into the human body. In one study, we've seen an estimate of about 80-85% for total selenium absorption from this shellfish. In addition to risk of problems involving lung function, selenium deficiency has been shown to increase our risk of heart failure and other forms of cardiovascular disease, as well as for other problems including type 2 diabetes, compromised cognitive function, and depression.

Copper is also classified as an antioxidant mineral, and one of its key roles in our health is related to the function of an enzyme called copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is found in the major fluid compartment of our cells (called the cytosol) and it is known to play a major role in regulation of oxygen metabolism and prevention of oxidative stress. Shrimp is our only fish at WHFoods to qualify as a "very good" source of copper in our rating system and it stands out in this respect as a source of antioxidant minerals. Not be overlooked, of course, is the fact that we also rank shrimp as a good source of zinc—the second mineral required for effective SOD function.
>>
Because it's pretty expensive around here.
>>
Protein and Peptide Support

At nearly 26 grams per 4-ounce serving, shrimp ranks as a very good source of protein at WHFoods, and provides over half of the Daily Value (DV) in each serving. In fact, among all WHFoods, shrimp ranks as our 8th best source of protein. The protein richness of shrimp is one of the reasons this shellfish is relied on in so many different culinary traditions.

When the protein in fish (or any other food) is broken down during digestion, smaller protein fragments called peptides are formed. (Peptides are chains of amino acids. Proteins are too, but they are longer chains and more complicated in their structure.) Some relatively short peptides—consisting of only 10-25 amino acids—have been found to be present in partially digested shrimp proteins and appear able to stimulate release of the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK) from cells that line our intestinal tract. Release of CCK is important for many reasons, including the role of CCK in regulating appetite. Our feeling of satiety (lack of appetite) is partly related to the levels of CCK in our digestive tract. By helping trigger release of CCK, shrimp peptides may play a role in helping us feel full. In the long run, this feeling of satiety may also be an advantage in helping to decrease our risk of obesity. Research on shrimp peptides and satiety is in its early stage, and largely limited to animal studies at this point. But we expect to see increasing interest in this area of shrimp and health.

Other Health Benefits

At only 7 calories per shrimp, we can eat a relatively large amount of this shellfish without using up too many of our daily calories. For example, a person eating 1,800 calories per day could consume 20 shrimp and only be "spending" about 8% of his or her daily calories. This very low calorie cost would not be so remarkable if it were not for the fact that shrimp provides us with significant amounts of so many nutrients. We usually have to eat foods with a far greater calorie content to get the nutrient richness provided by shrimp. For example, those same 20 shrimp that provide us with about 140 calories also provide us with 25 grams of protein or 50% of the Daily Value (DV).They also provide nearly 2 micrograms of vitamin B12—over 80% of the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) level for adults. When this nutrient richness list for shrimp is continued across the list of other vitamins and minerals provided by this fish, it becomes striking how much nourishment can be provided by shrimp for less than 10% of a total day's calories.

Shrimps are hands down the best protein source. There's nothing comparable in nature.

Pan fried in garlic butter. Takes like 10secs each side. Or substitute in place of chicken.

ya it's kinda expensive where i live (bay area) like $9/lbs which is what pretty decent steak goes for.

also a lot more work to prep cuz u don't buy pre-shelled unless you're an amateur.

Shrimps are a source of dietary cholesterol. Dietary cholesterol is bad.

They look kinda creepy.

Put them in hot soup and serve

I don't like shrimps.
Seeing that they contain a pretty good amount of good things, including brotiens.

I'll have to serve myself up a plate of these things sometime.

because your shrimp comes from antibiotic poisoned dogshit infested overused farms with toxic chinese river water

alternatively you can get some BP oil spill and cleanup chemicals shrimpts, I'm sure also very healthy

I won't eat a mercury-/cholesterol-ridden sentient animal being; I'm also taking higher dosages of the god-tier anti-oxidant astaxanthin (the carotenoid found in small quantities in shrimps, salmons and the like) directly from algae.

All the omegas are fat. Only one kind of the omega is reported in OP.
Also,
>http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/finfish-and-shellfish-products/4175/2
Only the saturated fat are actually in that percentage.
Iron is at 12%, Calcium at 14%. It may vary wildly from species to species. Vitamin B6 is way lower (1%) and the same goes for vitamin B12 (12%). Fats are the 12% of the calories, cholesterol something between 82% to 112% (depending on species). All shrimps are usually high in mercury.

>>35161255
mercury, cost and taste. you're going to get really fucking sick of eating it on a regular basis.

Why should I give a fuck about mercury

Does there exist a perfect food?

>>35161255

theyre toxic and you shouldnt eat that at all

vegan pls go

Plants, protists, and even many bacteria and fungi are sentient. The word means practically nothing, vegan fag. But keep taking that meme supplement.

Shrimp have roughly the same mercury as plants.

around .02 ug/g

My empathy is limited to sentient animal being, I could care less of beans & plants.
If I'll ever come to life again as a mushroom, I'll care (actually probably won't, given that I won't be "sentient" as an animal).
