Salmon – Superfood for General Health
Salmon has many special properties that make it a great superfood for general health, but especially good for bone and joint health. It has extremely high levels of Vitamin D, an essential nutrient the body needs for healthy, strong bones. It has high levels of omega-3 and other essential fatty acids help reduce painful inflammation while lubricating the joints. Recent studies have shown that it has protein molecules called bioactive peptides that provide support to joints, and collagen, the tissue surrounding bones.
When adding more salmon to your diet, it is essential you seek the guidance of your Doctor. Due to toxins and other contaminates in our fish supply, not all kinds of salmon you buy in the store are healthy. Your doctor will be able to recommend sources of salmon, such as wild caught Alaskan salmon, that are safe to eat. Sustainability is also an issue with salmon. Using companies that do not over fish an area and are mindful of environmental issues is essential. There are many great ways to add more salmon to your diet. Salmon can be used in soups, stews, sandwiches, and salads.
