A couple of months ago, I was super addicted to sushi. For all those who don’t know about sushi. It’s a dish made of salmon and rice and it has more versions.
Now I was curious to know about what actually I am eating. Is it fat or carb or what? So I started searching about salmon
Salmon has earned its superfood reputation because of its health-supportive omega-3 fatty acid content. But with so much focus laid on just the presence of omega-3 benefits.some of the other unique health benefits of salmon have been inadvertently ignored.
Salmon is a name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon is characterised by its pink colour and is often found in sushi platters.
The other health benefits of consuming salmon include the protein and amino acid content that the fish contains. A nutritionally dense superfood, salmon is great for fighting obesity and controlling the inflammation in the digestive tract.
Here are the top 4 reasons which make it a must-have health food that’s also lip-smacking.
It lowers the risk of depression:
The brain is made up of 60 per cent fat and most of that is the omega-3 fatty acid. its Essential for the brain to function properly. Eating salmon regularly has often been linked to reducing the risk and incidence of depression.
Salmon support in weight-loss:
One of the biggest ways to cut down fat and keep you on the path of a weight-loss plan is to consume protein-which is present in salmon. Eating lean protein, which is good for the heart and overall health, plays a major role in modulating insulin levels or insulin sensitivity. This, in turn, keeps you satiated therefore making, therefore, likely to overeat between meals.
Salmon Helps in preventing cell damage:
Along with its many vitamins and high protein content, salmon is an amazing source of selenium–a mineral that works as an antioxidant in the body. It is further connected to a decreased risk of joint inflammation, which keeps the immune system and thyroid in place and also takes care of any tissue damage.
Takes care of your cardiovascular health:
The omega-3 fat is also responsible for decreasing the risk of numerous cardiovascular problems like heart attack, stroke, heart arrhythmia, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides in the blood. When consumed two to three times per week, salmon can protect you from heart issues.
I hope you now know of almost features of salmon. Now have more sushi and other recipes of salmon.
