POWER FOOD ALERT**
FYI, salmon is a fantastic source of omega 3's. Offering both DHA and EPA omega 3 acids, these can help lower triglyceride levels and blood pressure and may even alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Other nutritional benefits:
- high in selenium, an antioxidant that protects healthy cells by fighting off free radicals
- High in niacin, B6, B12, and Vitamin D
Make sure you buy wild Alaskan salmon over the farmed variety, it is safer and offers more nutrients.
FUN FACT - when wild salmon swim upstream from the ocean into rivers and streams to spawn they help replenish those freshwater habitats with nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus.
