Traditional fish sauce is brewed from black anchovies and pure salt, which is an indispensable spice in every family meal. Not only does fish sauce add a rich flavor and deliciousness to the dish, but it also provides healthy nutrients.
Provide A Healthy Source Of Amino Acids
Naturally fermented by the aging process of fish and salt, fish sauce will generate many amino acids in the hydrolysis process. In particular, thanks to the enzyme system available in the intestines of fish, amino acids are cut into pieces, which facilitates the direct absorption function of your body. According to studies, traditional fish sauce contains 5/8 essential amino acids for the body, namely Valine, Isoleucine, Phenylalanine, Methionine, and Lysine.
Specifically, Valine helps to regulate the body, support sleep, and work up a great appetite. Isoleucine helps to monitor blood sugar levels and assist health recovery after vigorous exercise. Meanwhile, Phenylalanine improves your memory and your skin and Methionine has a protective effect on liver cells against poisoning. Finally, lysine helps increase calcium absorption, metabolism, and other nutrients in the body. Especially, it is produced for the appropriateness of children’s taste and it also fortifies the comprehensive development of children. Owing to a deficiency of lysine in the body, children can experience certain issues, including anorexia, slow growth, and lack of digestive enzymes. However, this micronutrient is very easy to be destroyed during cooking. Therefore, lysine naturally fermented in fish sauce is very beneficial and precious.
Supplement Your Diet With Natural Vitamin
Thanks to the natural brewing from fish and salt, the content of some vitamins such as B1, B2, PP, and especially B12 in fish sauce would be increased. It is estimated that for every 100 ml of fish sauce, there will be 5 micrograms of vitamin B12. It is extremely useful in the hematopoiesis process, keeping a stable nervous system, and supporting a better cell multiplication process. In particular, vitamin B12 is essential for pregnant women to improve the rate of healthy childbirth and prevent birth defects. According to international standards, 2.2 mcg of B12 must be supplied in the daily diet of pregnant women or lactating women. As for the average person, about 2.4 mcg is needed for the body to function properly.
More importantly, vitamin B12 cannot be synthesized in the body by itself, yet through the traditional fish sauce we consume every day. Besides, there are some other B12-containing food sources such as yogurt, meat and so on.
Supplement Your Diet With Iron
Iron is a useful nutrient available in fish sauce, which is also one of the essential micronutrients for body functioning. In the scientific light of nutrition experts, for every 10ml of pure fish sauce from anchovies, there will be about 10mg of natural iron. Due to the use of traditional fish sauce, the rate of iron deficiency anemia among women in our country has shrunk over the years. As such, the risk of premature birth or maternal and baby mortality would be inhibited.
According to the folk experience of the highland ethnic groups, pregnant women are more likely to strengthen their bodies with fish sauce-seasoned dishes, such as braised meat and fish stock. Because they have been supplemented with the necessary iron content for the body, they do possess healthy skin
