What Are the Health Benefits of Grilled Mahi Mahi?

Good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Mahi Mahi contains good amounts of omega-3 fatty acids — healthy fats with several health benefits. Adding omega-3 to your diet lowers your chances of having heart problems and stroke while also preventing inflammation.

Though a moderate level of inflammation is good for your body, too much of it can lead to health issues like heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, and even cancer. You might not find omega-3s in most of your other foods, so you may consider adding Mahi Mahi to your diet.
