Salmon, which can be described as a super source of long chain Omega-3s, is gluten-free, and a great source of protein, similar to steak, weight for weight. It also contains many vitamins and minerals the population is frequently short on such as iodine, selenium, zinc and Vitamin D. Essential fats also help relieve dry skin.
Eating salmon can have positive outcomes regarding a variety of ailments including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporoses and arthritis.
Interestingly, not all salmon are created equal. Regal king salmon grown in New Zealand contains more than twice the amount of Omega-3s found in the more common Atlantic salmon farmed in Australia, Chile and the northern hemisphere.
