Salmon is recognised as a superfood which means it is, “a natural food regarded as especially beneficial because of its nutrient profile or its health-protecting qualities”.
The superfood status is a result of salmon containing large amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids and being low in saturated fat and calories yet high in protein.
A diet rich in Omega-3 has been found to assist with
- A healthier heart
- Smoother joints
- Weight loss
- Cancer protection
- Brain development and function
- Healthier skin and hair
