So Run With The Salmon


We know that you know it -- cold water, fatty fish that is wild caught is good for you. And the king of all those fish is wild caught, Alaskan salmon.


Studies show that only one or two portions a week have benefits for your heart health, cholesterol and blood pressure. Salmon can even reduce your risk of strokes, prostate cancer and macular degeneration.

And did you know that salmon is brain food? The omega-3 fats increase brain function and can protect against Alzheimer's. Add to that the anti-inflammatory properties of salmon and you've got yourself one awesome Super Food.


So why aren't you eating more of it? Yes, yes, everything in moderation, especially when there is a risk for dioxin and PCB contamination. But experts say up to two portions of fatty fish per week is fine for pregnant and nursing women, and up to four portions is fine for men and women who aren't going to become pregnant.
