Protein and fatty acid in sea grapes are more than in many other vegetables and fruits. 100g sea grape only contains about 30mg sugar but about 966mg protein and 150mg fatty acids.
Of these, up to 30 mg of unsaturated fatty acids that are beneficial for the body such as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a-Linolenic acid (prefix DHA), Arachidonic acid (AA), Linoleic acid (precursor AA).
These fatty acids, along with protein and Vitamin C reduce total cholesterol and bad cholesterol concentration (LDL - cholesterol), simultaneouly increase good cholesterol concentration (HDL - Cholesterol) and the elasticity of blood circuit wall. It will help hinder oxidation, maintain collagen structure of artery wall, prevent and improve cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis.
Besides, the protein in sea grape also keeps the blood circuits elastic and durable, cholesterol will not increase.
The combination of these substances in sea grapes is the key that helps human body against cardiovascular diseases.
