Tiny and tasty sardines are nutritional
powerhouses that can change your life for the better. Nordic
brisling sardines offer you one of the richest sources of Omega-3’s,
excellent amounts of protein without the saturated fats, bone-boosting
calcium, and a number of essential vitamins and minerals—in
an all-natural, low-calorie package.
The Sardine Diet is not so named because you eat sardines
with every meal or even every day. In fact, the plan features
a wide variety of healthy foods—including fiber-rich
vegetables, legumes and grains, dairy, tofu, lean meats, and
of course various types of fish. However, at the end of the
day, this smart eating plan is named after the tiny sardine
for its mega nutritional benefits.
an important superfood… King of Omega-3’s
Your body needs but does not manufacture essential Omega-3 fatty
acids—you must get them from the foods you eat. And odds
are, your diet is deficient. Nordic brisling sardines are a
top source, offering as much as 2.8 grams of Omega-3’s in every 85 gram serving. High-Quality Protein
A single 85 gram serving of brisling sardines will supply you
with some 11 grams of protein, without a lot of saturated fats,
and just a mere 85 or so calories. This ratio is ideal for turbo-charging
your weight-loss formula.
Calcium, Vitamin D, and Phosphorous
You know you need calcium for strong bones. But did you know
that research has linked higher-calcium diets with decreased
fat storing and increased fat burning? A serving of sardines offers you almost three times the calcium in a cup of milk,
plus the vitamin D and phosphorous required for calcium absorption.
Safety and Purity
Experts agree that we need more fish in our diet. Nordic brisling
sardines might be the safest choice. Low on the food chain and
netted in clean waters, these fish have the least chance of
methyl mercury and other contaminants.
Advice “Sardines are a great source of lean protein,
calcium, and essential Omega-3’s…fatty acids
that are a key to optimal health and woefully neglected
in the American diet. If you’ve got high blood
pressure or are worried about the amount of salt in
your diet, look for Nordic sardines packed in spring
water…light in sodium, packed with nutrition.”
