I must admit that its the first time i’ve seen one out of the aquarium. And it’s the first time that i found out that the eel is a healthy piece of underwater delicacy.

In Japan, its called Unagi.  And according to Health Hokkaido, we can get a lot of health benefits from eels..

Nutritionally speaking, unagi contains vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E, which are effective agents for rejuvenating the body in summer. Among them, vitamin B1 is especially easy to loose in sweat, several minerals and high quality protein, as well as unsaturated fatty acids like DHA and EPA are more abundant in unagi than in other seafood. The benefits of these unsaturated fatty acids have been vigorously researched and well documented. The following is a summary of the major health benefits of DHA and EPA: – Decreases cholesterol – Lowers blood pressure – Prevents vascular diseases – Reduces the risk of developing arthritis – Promotes normal brain development and nervous system function – Promotes good eyesight See- Now hopefully you understand why having unagi at the end of the summer is good for you.

A kilo of eel is worth P100.00 to P150.00 for local buyers. But if they see that you’re a toursist, expect the price to double or tripple.
