Furthermore, salmon can improve skin texture, add some sparkle to your eyes, skin, hair and nails and help in the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon.
The fatter the salmon, the more nutritious and healthy it is. It is a good protein supplement for older or sick people as well, since it is easy to digest. In some parts of the world, it is cheaper than other sources of animal proteins like red meat and poultry.
