While we’re on the subject of omega-3 fatty acids, did you know that February is American Heart Month? It IS! Therefore, there is no better time than now to spread awareness about the heart health benefits of salmon.

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF SALMON:

  • According to research, omega-3 fatty acids are essential to a healthy heart. Since our bodies cannot produce them on its own, salmon is one of our best natural sources of omega-3s.
  • Eating two servings of salmon a week may decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, and decrease risk of heart failure. ALL of that thanks to salmon’s powerful DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids.
  • The 20152020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a shift from a diet high in saturated fats (like those found in beef and pork) to a diet rich in heart-healthy unsaturated fats (like those found in salmon).

On top of all that goodness, this is one of the few fish that’s very common, plus it’s absolutely delicious and very easy to prepare. WHO who wouldn’t want all of this?
