The Health Benefits of Salmon

Salmon is not only delicious, but it’s also one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Wild-caught salmon is packed with lots of vitamins and minerals and contains an exceptionally high omega-3 content.

Here are a few ways eating salmon benefits your health.

Boosts immunity – The combination of omega-3’s, selenium, and vitamins A and D help improve immunity both short and long-term. Eating at least two servings a week can help lessen the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.

Enhances brain function – Regularly eating salmon can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, protect fetal health during pregnancy, and decrease memory problems that happens with old age.

Benefits heart health – Salmon contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, which when eaten, help improve serum cholesterol. Also, salmon is an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that balances blood pressure and helps keep your heart healthy.

Keeps bones strong – The polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin D help to improve bone health, reducing the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.

Helps lower inflammation – Eating fish protects your cells from DNA damage, plus, the vitamin D helps to prevent autoimmune disease.

Aids in weight control – In addition to increasing your metabolic rate, salmon keeps you feeling fuller longer and prevents you from wanting to snack all the time. That’s because it’s a high-protein, low-calorie food.
