Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. This popular fatty fish is loaded with nutrients and may reduce risk factors for several diseases. It’s also tasty, versatile and widely available. Salmon is one of the best sources of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The quantity and types of omega-3s found in salmon are one of the main reasons that pushed this fish to the top in the human nutrition food chain. Unlike most other fats, omega-3 fats are considered essential, meaning you must get them from your diet since your body can’t create them.
Salmon is also rich in high-quality protein. Like omega-3 fats, protein is an essential nutrient that you must get from your daily diet. Protein plays a number of important roles in the body, including helping your body heal after injury, protecting bone health and maintaining muscle mass during weight loss and the aging process.
This fatty fish is also loaded with vitamin A, D, E and K which can benefit bone joints, eyes, feed the brain, repair muscle and regulate metabolic balances. Salmon also helps to improve our memory by helping sharpen our brains and improve our memory retention over time. It is also known to reduce risk of dementia and loss of mental functions.
