Omega 3 fatty acids are known for their beneficial effects in the body, especially when it comes to heart disease. They have been found to help keep heart rhythm steady, clear excess fat from the blood and reduce the chance of clots forming.
One of the primary omega-3 fatty acids found in fish is also the predominant omega-3 fatty acid found in the brain. Unsurprisingly, it exerts beneficial effects on the brain including enhancing the way serotonin (the brain chemical associated with feelings of happiness) works.
Vitamin D is very important for bone health, immune function and the growth of our cells. Salmon contains 94% of the reference intake, per 100g. Deficiency of vitamin D can increase our risk of infection and decrease absorption of dietary calcium and phosphorus which can then lead to reduced bone mineral density.
B- vitamins are particularly known for their role in energy production, creation/repair of our DNA and also maintaining heart and brain health. B-vitamins are involved in every single aspect of generating essential energy in the body and help maintain energy levels by releasing energy from the food we eat.
Vitamin B12 is needed to form red blood cells, DNA, produce energy and maintain our heart health. If we don't get enough, it can impact our energy levels, memory and mood - making us feel weak and tired. Vitamin B3 and phosphorus are critical ingredients needed to produce and maintain our bodies energy supply. B3 also plays a role in managing cholesterol levels (certain types of cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks).
