Health Benefits

  • Crab meat is beyond doubt a universally accepted delicacy. The crab meat has a lot of nutritional value. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which help in reducing the stickiness of blood platelets ensuring a smoother flow. It is good for diabetics as they metabolize sugar and lower the glucose levels in the body.

  • Some studies also show that eating food rich in omega-3 fatty acids can improve brain functioning and reduce the risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s.
