Source of selenium

Selenium is an important antioxidant that is essential for the functioning of the immune system. You can get nearly 50% of the daily value of selenium in only 3 ounces (85 grams). Moreover, the type of selenium found in shellfish is very well absorbed by the human body.

Fatty Acids

Prawns are sometimes criticized for their high cholesterol content. However, just like any other fish, they are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. Prawns are also an excellent source of unsaturated fats that help improve blood cholesterol levels. So enjoy unlimited prawns with friends, colleagues or the family and give a good start to the week-end!
