Shrimp is quite low in calories for its impressive nutrient rich profile. One serving provides more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, and is a great source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids which have numerous health benefits.
Shrimp is also one of the best sources of iodine, an important mineral that many people are deficient in.
