Nutrition Nibbles

Squid - doesn't look too appetizing, does it? However ... Proteins found in squid are extremely beneficial for the healthy functioning of the human body. Squids contain large amounts of phosphorus, similar to fish and shrimps. Phosphorus is necessary for stimulating calcium and building the bones and teeth. A great source of vitamin B12, squids are known to lower homocystein levels in the body, which can otherwise increase the rate of strokes and heart attacks. Squids help in stabilizing sugar levels in the blood due to an increased supply of vitamin B3 to the body.
