Healthy Foods: Salmon

Why They're Healthy:

A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to a reduced risk of depression, heart disease, and cancer. Salmon is also considered to be healthy due to the fish's high protein, and high vitamin D content. Salmon is loaded with selenium. Studies have shown that selenium helps protect bone health, decreases thyroid antibodies in people with autoimmune thyroid disease and may reduce the risk of cancer
A 3-ounce serving contains almost 50 percent of your daily dose of niacin, which may protect against Alzheimer's disease and memory loss

Quick Tip:

Opt for wild over farm-raised, which contains 16 times as much toxic polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) as wild salmon.
