Increase Lean Muscle with Mackerel

Why Mackerel is a good for muscle building

By LA Muscle on 05.10.2017 02:27 pm


Mackerel comes from the same family as tuna but has a higher omega-3 content, which helps limit the chronic inflammation generated by intense hypertrophy-based training. Mackerel contains a variety of other nutrients, including large amounts of zinc, which is essential for maintaining testosterone levels.

Macros per Fillet (Approx)
Fat: 17.8g - Saturated fat 5.1g, Monounsaturated fat 5.9g, Polyunsaturated fat 4.4g
Carbs: 0g
Protein: 42g

As you can see from the above macros, Mackerel is perfect for building lean muscle as it is high in protein, contains healthy fats and literally has no carbs whatsoever. So bodybuilders tend to have this when dieting for a show as they tend to taper back on carbohydrates. Mackerel is known as a very healthy fish and regular consumption is very good for overall health. It is famous for the heart health benefits it provides and also, known for making the blood clean and fresh.

Mackerel is enriched with other minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium and magnesium. Vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Niacin, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Choline and Folate can be found in mackerel fish. It’s a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids and some amount of Omega-6 fatty acids. Mackerel also contains monounsaturated fats.

One should buy mackerel that is firm and bright, gills should be clean and the skin moist with shiny scales. Ideally, this fish should be eaten within couple of days because its skin disintegrates quickly.

Mackerel helps to prevent the chances of developing cancer by lowering cancer causing agents. It helps to regulate metabolism, strengthens immune system and improves the overall body functions. It is an important food for the brain as it enhances brain activity and keeps the nervous system normal and healthy.

Mackerel is also helpful in alleviating the pain of migraine, arthrosis and arthritis.

Best Eaten: Grilled, smoked with salad or cooked in the oven.
