Scallops Nutrition Facts
Scallops are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial fats that help balance cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease. Scallops have a high magnesium level, which may help with heart health. This mineral aids in the relaxation of blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and improving circulation.
On the other hand, most species live recumbent on sandy substrates. When they detect a predator, such as a starfish, they may try to flee by swimming quickly but irregularly through the water, using jet propulsion caused by rapidly slapping their shells together.
