Australian sardines are one of the richest sources of essential omega 3 oils on the planet Australian sardines are packed with nutrients. They contain protein, iron, zinc, vitamin D and niacin, and are one of the richest seafood sources of omega-3 oils.
Benefits of Omega-3 Oils
Nutritionists recommend that we eat sardines at least twice a week due to their high nutritional value. Research is ongoing, but the proven benefits of omega-3 oils in the diet are:

lower triglyceride levels, an important consideration in avoiding coronary heart disease;
improve blood vessel elasticity;
keeps the heart rhythm beating normally;
thins the blood, which makes it less sticky and less likely to clot; reduce inflammation and support the immune system;
reduce blood pressure;
may play a role in preventing and treating depression; and contribute to the normal development of the foetal brain.
