Salmon reduces the risk of heart disease

The Federal Center for Nutrition has announced that Salmon is good for cardiovascular health, given that it is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3), which reduce the level of harmful cholesterol (LDL) and high blood pressure, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes.

Furthermore, the Center explained that the combination of antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3) in Salmon improves brain activity and reduces stress hormones.

In addition, Salmon is rich in minerals and vitamins such as phosphorous and potassium for bone health, iodine for thyroid health, B vitamins for nerve health as well as vitamin D, which promotes healthy bones and teeth.

To reap the various health benefits of Salmon, doctors recommend eating it twice a week.
