Amazing Benefits of A Salmon Diet
Salmon is an oily fish, dense in high-quality protein, rich in vitamin D, and is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids. It’s considered the ‘good cholesterol.’ It also contains minerals like selenium, zinc, phosphorus, calcium and iron.
Salmon offers many health benefits. Firstly, it helps in normal metabolism. The omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and selenium in salmon combine to help manage insulin levels helping in the absorption of sugar, lowering its levels in the blood. Selenium, one of the trace elements, is necessary for metabolism of tissues, hair, and nails. Diabetics or those prone to develop diabetes can benefit much from a salmon diet.
Where cardiovascular health is concerned, the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon fights bad cholesterol, protecting the integrity and flexibility of the vessel walls of arteries and veins, decreasing the buildup of plaque formation that leads to hardening of the walls and eventual blockage. Due to salmon’s rich content of essential amino acids, heart and vessel muscles are strengthened, reducing the risks of heart attacks.
Studies show that those on a salmon (or other fish) diet seem to have better brain function. Omega-3 fatty acids are said to improve memory, keeping the brain neurons active. The amino acids, vitamins A and D, and selenium fight against the effects of aging, boosting the nervous system. Reports also claim that salmon is also good for those who have Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
The omega-3 and amino acids in salmon are helping improve vision and fatigue of the eyes. They prevent macular degeneration and eye dryness. It also improves skin texture and promotes healthy hair and nails. In addition, those on salmon diet have reduced risks of colon, prostate and kidney cancers.
What’s not to love about salmon? It’s the fish diet for long life.
