Sushi- A Tasty Treat For The Skin and The Soul

Japanese people have relatively longer lifespan than other nations and this can be attributed to the kind of food they eat. They use only the freshest ingredients and premium quality meats in every dish. By far the most recognizable Japanese food is sushi. Sushi has become more than just a culinary treat, its rich history, delightful mix of texture and mild taste have been perfected over time. Just like any Japanese cuisine, sushi is more than just great food presented artfully; it’s actually good for you! Each ingredient in a typical sushi roll can actually help improve your complexion, even your skin tone, restore moisture and bring back a youthful glow to your skin!


Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Oily and dark skinned fish help protect the skin from cellular breakdown and sun damage, improve the skin’s texture and restore cellular function for radiant skin. The human body cannot generate Omega-3 fatty acids and sushi is a great source of these essential fatty acids.


Fresh veggies should be a staple in your diet. They are an excellent source of antioxidants which prevents skin inflammation, and imparts moisture, balance and soothing properties to the skin. Green veggies are proven to limit the production of free radicals which are directly linked to premature aging and damaging the outer layer of the skin. One of the most common vegetable found in sushi is avocado. Avocado is a super food rich in vitamins A, D, E, and K and also contains a potent antioxidant called Glutathione, which is perfect for maintaining youthful skin.

Brown Rice

Sushi is typically made using white Japanese rice. However, if you want to add an interesting layer of texture and unique flavor to your typical sushi roll, requesting brown rice is also beneficial to your health, particularly your skin. Brown rice is rich in vitamin B1, B3, B6, as well as vital nutrients like fiber, iron, Manganese and fatty acids.
