Health Benefits of Salmon
The health benefits of eating salmon include the following:
Good Source of Vitamins, Proteins and Essential Minerals
Proteins, or accumulations of amino acids, are essential components of our cells, tissues, enzymes, hormones and every other body part. The proteins from salmon, and most other fishes, are easily digestible and easily absorbed into the body. They don’t have any adverse side effects, nor do they contain carcinogenic compounds like some other meats do.
Salmon is also a source of “good” cholesterol (omega-3 fatty acids) which also plays a vital role in keeping you healthy. Salmon is also rich in some essential minerals like iron, calcium, selenium and phosphorus, as well as vitamins like A, B and D. Selenium, which is necessary for metabolism of tissues, hair, and nails, is best obtained from animal proteins. Among animals, salmon is one of the best sources for this trace element.
