All About Salmon

All About Salmon

It’s National Seafood Month and we’re celebrating by sharing our love for salmon. Salmon is commonly known to be a very heart-healthy protein, but did YOU know that salmon has other great health benefits as well. Salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids. It is also a great source of protein and has many essential vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Selenium, phosphorous, and iron. All of these allow salmon to provide its various health benefits, according to Healthline.

Health Benefits

Omega-3 fatty acids not only help to reduce the risk of heart disease by increasing the functioning of the heart muscle and decreasing heart arrhythmias. Fish is recommended to be consumed twice a week by the American Heart Association because of the benefits to the heart. Omega-3 fatty acids provided by salmon can also help to promote health joints, skin, and help with neurological development when taken by pregnant mothers. It can also reduce aggression, impulsivity, and depression in adults, as reported by Medical News Today. The vast amount of protein provided by salmon provides essential amino acids to the body that help to promote growth and strengthen bones. The protein can even help promote weight loss as it maintains metabolism. The Vitamin D in salmon can actually even help to reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis and cancer. The National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements states that salmon can also help to prevent mental deterioration from aging and thyroid disease through the selenium that it provides to the body. On top of all of this, salmon can also help
with maintaining diabetes and healthy cholesterol levels.

Incorporating Salmon Into Your Diet

Salmon can be cooked in many ways, including baked, broiled, seared or grilled. Livestrong recommends eating salmon with a side of steamed vegetables for a meal that will not only help with maintaining heart health, but will also give energy and reduce hunger. It is also great alongside pasta or rice, on top of salads, or formed into patties for salmon burgers. Here at STONEFIRE Grill, we prefer our salmon grilled with Lemon Garlic or Sesame Glaze, with a freshly prepared, simply delicious salad.
