Good for diabetics
Along with all other shellfish, crabs are rich in chromium, which helps insulin
to metabolize sugar, and thereby lowers the blood glucose levels in the body.

Anti-cancer properties
All shellfish, including crab, have generous amounts of selenium. Selenium is
an anti-oxidant and cancels out the carcinogenic effects of cadmium, mercury
and arsenic, which can cause tumors in humans. It has been proved that higher
levels of selenium in the blood lead to lower rates of cancer. In fact, lysate,
which is extracted from the blue blood of the horse-shoe crab, is used for
detection of spinal meningtis and for fighting cancer.

Source of good cholesterol
While crab meat is considered low in saturated fat, the presence of chromium
helps increase the level of HDL (good cholesterol) in your body, and thus
reduces the risk of strokes, coronary and circulatory heart disease. In
fact, crabs contain sterol, which restrict the absorption of other cholesterol
eaten during a meal, thus cancelling out the harmful effects of other fats
added to your meal.

Omega 3 fatty acids
Crabs, like all shellfish, are also a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids. The
crabs get these from consuming phytoplanktons and algae, which is a big part of
their diet. Omega 3 fatty acids are immensely useful to people and help in
reducing the stickiness of blood platelets, thus making red blood cells more
flexible and ensuring a smoother flow. Omega 3 acids also help to reduce the level
of tri-glycerides and LDL (low-density lipo-proteins), which choke up artery
walls as deposits.
