About This Food

Description

Squid, or more often presented as “calamari,” is suggested as one of the best fish to eat due to its low mercury content and high amounts of vitamins and minerals.

Squid is one of the best sources of copper, a trace mineral that helps the body absorb iron and form red blood cells, as well as phosphorus and magnesium that support overall well-being and immunity.

It's high levels of selenium reduce inflammation, helping those with arthritis find relief. It is also rich in B vitamins that help stabilize blood sugar levels, lower the intensity of migraines, and lower the risk of heart disease.
