Benefits of Salmon:

Salmon is one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. It is packed with high quantities of Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Selenium, Phosphorous, and Omega 3 fatty acids. Although most of these micro-nutrients can be found in many different foods, two of the three omega 3- fatty acids are specific to marine animals. 

The three types of Omega 3-fatty acids that are significant to humans are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is found in foods like walnuts, hemp oil, and flaxseed oil, whereas EPA, and DHA are found in foods like fish and fish oils.  

Omega 3-fatty acids have been studied extensively and have demonstrated the potential to combat certain cancer cells, decrease one's risk of cardiovascular disease, promote healthier skin and even improve eyesight!  

When purchasing salmon, be sure to look out for wild-caught Alaskan salmon instead of farmed salmon which tend to have higher levels of toxins and contaminants.
