Salmon is full or healthy fats. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and vitamin A. It is also a great source of vitamin B’s, selenium, and protein. Recent studies have found that salmon may provide support for insulin sensitivity and control inflammation in the gut. Inflammation is at the root of all disease processes, including heart disease. I try and avoid Atlantic salmon, preferring wild salmon.
