Benefits of omega-3

Phosphorus

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Two of the minerals that are found in omega-3, are phosphorus and selenium. Let’s talk a little bit about phosphorus; this mineral is responsible for creating some of the energy that we use every day. Second of all, it helps our bodies in synthesizing proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

I sure hope this is helpful to you I worked hard at finding this information for my site, to go along with my baked salmon with Mediterranean spinach recipe.

Selenium

Selenium is nutritionally essential for humans. The fact remains, that selenium fights cancer!

“The three forms of selenium most important in cancer prevention are sodium selenite, L-selenomethionine, and selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine.

Possibly the most active is inorganic sodium selenite which has been shown to kill cancer cells in more than 8 studies…”

Vitamins

The vitamins in omega-3 are: B3, B12 & D. Vitamin B3 aka niacin, which lowers high blood cholesterol. It also helps the body maintain healthy skin, nerves and the digestive system. Some foods that contain B3 are: fish, red meat, chicken, nuts and enriched whole grain products. For enriched grains consider: oats, buckwheat, rice, rye, quinoa, and wheat.

B12: Lean beef, liver, eggs, shellfish and dairy products.

Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium and helps to keep phosphorus in the blood. Sources of vitamin D are: fish oil, dairy and sunlight.
