Fish eggs have a common benefit with fish oil supplements – that’s their high component of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats. Better than supplements, fish eggs are natural sources, hence, there is less risk of oxidizing during processing. Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for proper brain function and heart health, and help reduce inflammation in the body that can lead to chronic disease.
Fish eggs are also one of the few sources of fat-soluble vitamin D which works together with omega-3 fats. The vitamin helps healthy fats get absorbed and used by the body. Vitamin B12 is another nutrient present in fish roe for mental health and brain function and helps metabolize food for energy. Selenium, magnesium, iron and some calcium add to the impressive lineup of nutrients already in fish roe.
