Benefits Of Anchovies - Beyond Pizza Toppings & Caeser Salads

Anchovies may not enjoy the popularity of larger fish, and to many they are just a condiment for pizza or salads, but you should know how nutritious these little guys are. This post goes out especially to those of you who are concerned with mercury levels in fish as well as other contaminants. Anchovies are on the top of the list when sourcing food from the sea that has the least amount of heavy metal toxicity.

According to the FDA, pregnant women and small children (under age 6) should not eat more than two servings of fish each week—and should only eat those fish with low mercury content, just like anchovies.

Anchovies are rich in omega-3-fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and minerals that help maintain good health.

They contain:

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Zinc

Anchovies are a good source of the following vitamins:

  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Folate
  • Vitamin C, B12, B6, A, E, and K.

These oily fish also contain good fats and cholesterol. Not only do these provide a healthy dose of fat and other nutrients, they’re also zero carbs.

Anchovies are available in fresh, tinned or canned, salted, oiled, and paste forms.

Here is a helpful tip. Anchovy paste has less flavor and nutrients compared to the fresh and processed ones but can be used in sauces, jams, pickles, spreads, and more.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego.

He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine.

In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.

The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.

Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
