Salmon is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients essential for your body to function efficiently and keep you healthy.

Salmon contains essential amino acids that promote growth and help maintain muscle tissue mass. The protein found in salmon helps the body maintain metabolism at levels to promote weight loss.
This will also provides roughly around 50% or more of your recommended intake of selenium. Selenium may help to fight heart disease, cancer, mental decline that comes with age and thyroid disease. The same serving of salmon also delivers around 20% or more of your daily intake of phosphorous, which plays numerous roles in the body, from building strong bones and teeth to maintaining a healthy heart and kidneys.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of essential fatty acid, which body cannot make on its own and requires intake from food or supplements in order to supply it. A 100 gram of wild raw salmon will provide around 2018mg of Omega-3 fatty acids (may vary depending on fish type and origin). Omega-3 promotes healthy joints and skin, reduces the risk of heart disease and aids in neurological development in unborn children.
