Lobster Nutrition Facts

A wise choice is you skip the dip in melted butter! Nutrition studies show that 3 1/2 ounces of lobster meat (without the butter) contains only 90 calories, compared to 163 calories for the same amount of chicken and 280 calories for sirloin steak.

Lobster contains good levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which seem to have the ability to regulate and lower cholesterol levels in the blood, as well as improving the ratio of good and bad cholesterol. It is this ratio between good and bad cholesterol that is thought to play a key role in heart attack risk, and this is one of the most important effects of omega-3 fatty acids in the diet.

Lobster can boost your mood and mental performance. Research has shown that lobster and other shellfish deliver large supplies of an amino acid called tyrosine to the brain. Tyrosine is used to produce two energizing brain chemicals called dopamine and norepinephrine.

Lobster is also great source of vitamin B12, a good source of zinc, and also contains some folate, magnesium, potassium and calcium.
