Eight Reasons Why You Should Eat More Salmon
Unless you've been living under a rock, we are sure you have heard that there are about a million health benefits associated with a diet rich in seafood (well, almost a million.)
Salmon, which is native to our region is one of the healthiest fish of all!
Here are Eight Reasons Why You Should Eat more Salmon:
1. It is delicious! This is a no-brainer! Salmon is one of the most flavorful fish out there! Rich and hearty, it is also one of the most popular.
2. Maintains Brain Health. Salmon is extremely rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which are known to support brain function and increase memory! As an added bonus, they have a calming affect on your brain which can reduce your risk of Alzheimer's.
3. Reduces High Blood Pressure. People with diets rich in fish oil have lower risks of heart attack and stroke.
4. Protects the Skin You're In! The rich oils in salmon are known for having anti-inflammatory properties which can protect your skin from sunburn and even skin cancer.
5. Depression Cure! The rich Omega 3's in salmon are known for keeping the brain chemicals balanced- therefore leaving you feeling happy.
6. Works to Balance Your Metabolism: The Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin-D and Selenium in this tasty fish all work together to manage insulin levels throughout your body, thereby helping the absorption of sugars. It is good for your waistline, too!
7. Seeing is Believing! Your Eyesight. The Omega-3 fatty acids and Amino acids in this flavorful fish work towards the prevention of macular degeneration, retinal problems, loss of vision and tired eyes. It is an actual proven fact that people who eat fish often have better sight than people who don't!
8. Beautiful Hair and Nails. The Vitamins in wild salmon are so rich, that you will see a new suppleness to your skin, your hair will feel fuller, and your nails will be less brittle when you start a diet rich in fish oil.
The list really does go on and on. Be sure to be selective about your salmon choices- farm raised salmon often is depleted of these essential nutrients, so wild is truly the way to go! We are now serving Copper River Salmon- get it while it's hot!
