Salmon is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins, as well as the minerals.
Omega-3 are essentials for growth and development, heart and circulation, and play a vital role in brain function and in preventing disease, and especially the Omega-3 (EPA & DHA) which are sourced from a marine environment.
Omega-3 have anticoagulant properties, helping prevent the blood from clotting, and bringing down high blood pressure. Omega-3 also helps to increase the level of the good HDL cholesterol.
Our Scottish salmon is rich with Omega-3.
A 2009 study conducted by Dr. Carl Lavie and colleagues at the Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute in New Orleans, which looked at cases of more than 40,000 people, demonstrated the health benefits of eating fish like supreme Scottish salmon.
The team founds that the Omega-3 fatty acids ‘help improve the electrical activity of the heart, as well as muscle tone, plaque stabilization, blood pressure, and more’. The study reported that heart attack victims (caused by heart disease) could reduce the chances of a heart-related death by 30 percent by taking daily doses of Omega-3.
Moreover, by adding Omega-3s to their regular diet, healthy people lowered the risk of a hardening of the arteries, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, sudden cardiac death, and heart failure.
