Though proteins and fats are generally relatively stable and do not easily break down, as are minerals such as zinc, iron, and selenium, choosing frozen meat over fresh meat may help you get more of all those macro- and micronutrients. That’s because the freezing and thawing process breaks up some of the cellular structures within the meat, which makes it easier for your body to absorb those nutrients.
Frozen fish is usually flash-frozen almost as soon as it hits the boat deck or dock, locking in protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 has over fifteen science-based health benefits, including eye, brain, and heart health; it helps fight autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, and inflammation, while also improving bone and joint health. This fatty acid is considered a superhero for a healthy body.
