Theres no doubting the amazing health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.
Not only are they heart-healthy fats, they also promote beautiful, healthy skin, hormonal balance, and immune function. EFAs also help reduce inflammation and boost mood, by helping in the production of serotonin, the happy neurotransmitter.
And one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids are wild, cold-water fish such as salmon. The colder the water a fish lives in, the more omega-3 its body requires and possesses, simply to keep it warm enough.
Plus, salmon is a wonderful source of protein. It contains a complete range of the essential amino acids needed to build protein, and is lower in unhealthy saturated fat than red meat or pork.
Just be sure to always choose wild salmon (never farmed). You can top a salad with the canned variety or even used to make salmon cakes (as an alternative to crab cakes). Or simply choose salmon filets for your next cookout. It holds up beautifully on the grill.
