Salmon is the richest food on earth, as it contains a wide variety of nutrients.
The Healthline website reviewed the most prominent benefits that humans derive from eating salmon, as follows:
Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids: Unlike most other fats, omega-3 fats are essential, and you must get them from your diet because your body cannot form them, and these fats are important for fighting infections and lowering blood pressure.
Good source of protein: Protein helps build muscle, protect bones, and speed recovery from injuries. 3.5 ounces of salmon contains 22-25 grams of protein.
Rich in B vitamins: 100 grams of salmon contains a group of B vitamins, which improve the functioning of the brain and nervous system and convert food into energy.
It contains potassium, which helps control blood pressure. It also reduces the risk of stroke.
Packed with selenium.. Studies have shown that selenium helps protect bone health and lowers the risk of cancer.
Eating salmon and other seafood that is high in selenium improves selenium levels in the blood.
Contains Antioxidants: Reduces the risk of heart disease by reducing the oxidation of bad cholesterol.
Reduces the risk of heart disease: Eating salmon regularly helps protect against heart disease, due to the ability of salmon to increase omega-3 fats in the blood. Many people have more omega-6 fatty acids in their blood, compared to omega-3s, and when these two fatty acids are out of balance, the risk of heart disease increases.
Helps control weight: Like other protein-rich foods, salmon helps regulate hormones that control appetite and make you feel full.
Besides, your metabolic rate increases after eating protein-rich foods like salmon, compared to other foods.
Helps fight inflammation: Salmon can be a powerful weapon against infections. Many experts believe that inflammation is the root cause of most chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Protects Brain Health: An increasing number of studies indicate that including salmon in your diet improves brain function.
