Crab is a good source of heart healthy omega 3's which help to lower triglycerides and blood pressure along with reducing the risk of heart disease. Omega 3's are also thought to reduce the inflammation, enhance immune function, and even lower the risk of certain types of cancer. Most Americans don't get enough omega 3's in their diet and adding crab meat to the table is a good way to start. Crab meat is also rich in vitamins and minerals with particularly high levels of vitamin B-12, a vitamin that's critical for healthy nerve function. It's also a good source of the minerals zinc and copper.
