One of the most important components of human nutrition is omega 3 fatty acids. They are vital for the health of the nervous system, cognitive function, the health of the eyes, cell receptor function and maintaining a healthy inflammatory response. Unfortunately, a huge percentage of us are not getting enough of the important long chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that are responsible for many of these benefits. This is because so few of us regularly eat seafood. My recommendation is to eat high quality seafood 3-4 times per week to get regular supplies of these vital fats.
Wild Alaska seafood contains the vitamins E,C,D,A.
Benefits include balancing cholesterol (it acts as a protective antioxidant that fights against cholesterol oxidation that causes damage in the body).

Increases immunity and fights things like the common cold. Zinc can interfere with the molecular process, exerting an antiviral effect by attaching itself to receptors in the nasal epithelial cells and fighting illnesses. It is also great for supporting liver health, digestion and plays a very important role in fertility.
Is known to make the skin glow. A lack of iron causes haemoglobin levels to decrease resulting in the subsequent reduction of red blood cells. A dose of iron can prevent this from happening.
This micro mineral is used by our cells to create enzymes that help clear waste products and it also helps protect our DNA from damage.
Canned salmon in particular contains high levels of calcium. The body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. It also helps with cardiac muscle protection, weight management, the prevention of kidney stones and dental care.
