Even though they are full of omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iodine and protein, they offer low levels of food energy. On the whole, shrimps are considered to be a healthy choice of food for the circulatory system and although they can sometimes be high in cholesterol levels, they have a good effect in the ratio of LDL to HDL and they lower the triglyceride levels.
