Our Locally Caught Sardines

Sardines health benefits include maintaining blood sugar levels, maintaining psychological health, providing the body with minerals and vitamins, reducing inflammation, preventing heart diseases and supporting weight loss. Other health benefits include enhancing the skin, boosting the immune system, and reducing the risk of macular degeneration.

What are Sardines?

Sardines are tiny oily fish packed with a huge amount of nutrients. They are normally available in cans and are notorious for their strong smell and taste, but this seafood is worth all the hassle because of its nutritional value. The good news is that the smell and strong taste can be toned down with various cooking methods, because this seafood is a must for a healthy diet and are locally caught and readily available here in the Northern Territory.

You can broil, grill or roast sardines. Mostly, people buy them canned at grocery stores but they can be eaten fresh as well, and fresh is always better. It is better to eat wild fish as opposed to farmed as farmed fish contain fewer nutrients and have more toxins. Farmed fish is raised on grains and anti-biotics, which takes away a lot from their nutritional value.

These tiny fish are cost-effective and highly nutritional, with the rise of mood disorders and other health issues caused by nutritional deficiencies, sardines are the best and the most natural way to keep our bodies and our minds healthy. They are referred to as natural multivitamins in different cases, and rightly so.
