Frozen Sea Cucumber
Like most seafood, sea cucumber is a good source of protein. A 3.5-ounce serving boasts 13 grams of high-quality protein. Your body needs protein to build and repair strong muscle, hair, skin, bone and connective tissue and also relies on protein from your diet to support your immune system.
Including sea cucumber in your diet will help you consume more vitamin B-3, also called niacin. One of niacin's most important roles in your body is promoting energy production; your body turns niacin into a related compound, called NAD, then uses the NAD to produce fuel. Meeting your daily niacin needs is also important for healthy skin, since pellagra – the condition caused by niacin deficiency – leads to skin rashes. A serving of sea cucumber supplies 3.2 milligrams of niacin. That covers 23 percent of the daily niacin intake requirements for women and 20 percent for men.
Eating sea cucumber also helps you up your vitamin A intake. Each serving of sea cucumber provides 310 international units of vitamin A, which covers 13 percent of the vitamin A needs for women and 10 percent for men. Like niacin, vitamin A is good for your skin – it's important for cell growth, including the growth of your skin cells – and it also plays a critical role in supporting healthy eyesight, immunity and energy production.
