Notes

Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. It is a great source of protein, which allows your muscle to recover and build. Salmon is also an excellent source of several B vitamins, which are needed for energy production, controlling inflammation and protecting heart and brain health. Consuming salmon may help you control your weight by reducing appetite, boosting metabolic rate, increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing body fat : )
