Three most popular seafood products among consumers

Like fruits and vegetables, fish also has its season. Seasonal fish being fresher better preserves its properties, but in addition to that, it is usually cheaper in terms of cost. September is the ideal month to consume octopus, sardines and mussels. By the bye, these are certain special types of seafood items that bring about great benefits to your body:

1) Octopuses

Octopus stands out from other seafood animals because of having a high level of zinc, an indispensable mineral, to build up our defenses.

It is also an excellent source of taurine, a type of amino acid that helps control cholesterol.

It is a very traditional food in the Spanish gastronomy. Perhaps the octopus variety vinaigrette or the Galician being its two most popular versions.
