You can therefore eat more shellfish without hesitation since they will bring you many benefits: “They are rich in proteins, trace elements, such as omega-3 for example, which are good fatty acids, and iodine”, explained the doctor. Indeed, these elements are essential for the proper functioning of the human body. They allow our body to function well and be healthy.
