The 2 Best Reasons to Eat Salmon:
Salmon is one of the healthiest foods to eat for staying fit and living healthy.   Salmon’s health benefits are vast and will give you great benefits for each calorie.

1. It’s one of the best foods for ESSENTIAL long chain Omega-3 Fatty acids, DHA and EPA.
Simply, you need to eat foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids since the body can’t produce them.  Fatty acids are beneficial for weight loss, cell health, skin, nerves, organs like the heart and all daily functions of the body to keep it going.

2. Salmon is high in protein
which helps muscle growth, cell production and healing the body for injury or the natural aging process.  To get these benefits, your body only needs approximately 3.5 – 4.5 ounce serving.
